Sheldon Cotterell has been entertaining one and all for quite some time ever since he has made his mark in the West Indies squad. Any wicket for the speedster is incomplete without his signature celebration, where he first marches, then salutes, taking on from his earlier stint as a soldier for the Jamaica Defence Force. However, there is one place off the field where it seems that the big man still needs to make his presence felt. In case if you are wondering where then the answer is on social media. Yes, you have heard it right. Let us know what has indeed happened.
It so happened that a fan had requested Cotterell to tell Virat Kohli to talk to him on Twitter, to which the speedster replied that 'He doesn’t talk to me on Twitter either'.
Read both the tweets here:
The fans were spot on as Cotterell had dismissed Kohli in both the games. In the first match, the batting maestro was completely deceived by the Windies speedster as he ended up giving a simple catch to Kieron Pollard. In the second game, the 30-year-old was castled by the stylish pacer as his middle stump went for a walk.
Kohli surpassed Suresh Raina to become India's highest run-scorer in the shortest format of the game i.e. T20 cricket. He achieved this feat against the Windies by scoring a 23-ball 28 before he was castled by pacer Sheldon Cottrell. The 30-year-old now has 8416 runs while Raina (8392 runs) takes the second spot. Other Indian batsmen in this list include Rohit Sharma (8291) and Shikhar Dhawan (6953).
The Delhi batsman also has the second-highest number of half-centuries in the T20I format (20) behind vice-captain Rohit Sharma (21).
