Ben Stokes, talented England’s cricketer, has slammed and criticized Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper, who has complained about Birmingham’s boundary in World Cup 2019.
The Indian skipper in a post-match conference was spotted saying that spinners could not help due to the 59-meters boundary of Birmingham and couldn’t keep the ball in line.
“If batsmen are able to reverse sweep, sweep you for a six on a 59-meter boundary you can’t do much as a spinner. They had to be smarter with their lines as it was difficult to contain runs with one short boundary,” Kohli mentioned in the post-match press conference.
The Southpaw said that it is the worst complaint ever made about the size of the boundaries and has termed it as “bizarre complain” which he has never heard.
Ben Stokes terms Kohli’s boundary complain as the worst complaint ever
“… it was weird to hear India captain Kohli whingeing about the size of the boundaries at the post-match presentation ceremony. I have never heard such a bizarre complaint after a match. It’s actually the worst complaint you could ever make,” Stokes was quoted as saying.
In England vs India World Cup 2019 match, England set the target of 338 and stopped India from bragging it ahead towards the victory when they reached 306, however, India has 5 wickets in their hand, England’s bowling mattered.
Ben Stokes himself was one of the three men who went for half-centuries. Another two were Johnny Bairstow and Jason Roy. Bairstow was more tremendous of all as he went for 111 on 109 balls. India lost brutally and Virat kept on complaining the boundary size. The duo of the spinners, Chahal and Yadav conceded 160 runs in 20 overs due to which Kohli thought the thing that didn’t work was spin and reverse-swing of batsmen got dominant over them.
