Such has been the dominance of Team India in their recent tour of New Zealand that the local police in the country issued a hilarious warning to its citizens, suggesting them to stay away from Virat Kohli and his men so that they don't get a beating, the manner in which their national team has been getting.
The hilarious message was shared by the Eastern District Police on its official Facebook account on January 26, the day India beat New Zealand in the second ODI at Mount Maunganui.
"Police would like to issue a warning to members of the public about the exploits of a group touring the country at the moment. Witnesses report seeing this group badly assault an innocent looking bunch of New Zealanders in both Napier and Mt Maunganui in the last week. Extra care should be taken if you are carrying anything that looks like a cricket bat or ball," their hilarious social media post read.
This message became viral when it was posted, but the possibility of such similar posts becoming even more viral became high following India's win against the Kiwis in the third ODI on Monday.
Virat Kohli and his men beat New Zealand by seven wickets in the third ODI at Mount Mount Maunganui, and in doing so, took an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series to confirm a first series win for the Men in Blue in the country after a decade, and only just the second ever series win against the Kiwis in their own backyard.
Just like the previous two matches, it was a comfortable win for the Indian team which can't seem to do anything wrong at the present time. Having lost the toss, the Indian bowlers yet again showed why they are arguably the best in the world by bowling out the hosts for 243 within the 50 overs.
And India chased down the target with ease, much thanks to the contributions by the openers and the middle-order batsmen.
