As Team India started its World Cup campaign on Wednesday, ICC shared a sketch of the Indian captain Virat Kohli where he is seen wearing a king’s attire with a crown over his head sitting on a throne holding a bat and a ball in his hands.
The image of the Indian captain recieved mixed reactions from cricket fans as some admired the ICC gesture whereas others criticised and called it biased. Here are some of the tweets received from fans:
Fans from across the world believe that all the participating teams are potentially equal and have come on a platform to compete against each other to win the most prestigious title in the world of cricket.
Virat Kohli is believed to be one of the best batsmen today. Although, he is playing his third World Cup this but as the captain of the Indian team will be his first. The captain feels that it’s going to be a high scoring and more challenging tournament and believes that the only way to handle the situation is to adapt very quickly to the conditions.
