The Bharat Army came up with an epic reply in response to the Barmy Army, who had trolled Virat Kohli after the India star missed the first ODI against England due to a groin injury.

After India captain Rohit Sharma confirmed that Kohli was not part of India’s playing XI for the series opener at the Oval, England’s official fan club ‘The Barmy Army’ poked fun at the ex-India captain by showing the meaning of the word ‘dropped’. The Barmy Army morphed the English dictionary to their advantage.

However, the Bharat Army did come up with a brutal reply after Bumrah delivered a masterclass in swing bowling as he snared six wickets and Mohammed Shami added another three to knock over England for 110 in the first game of the three-match one-day international series at the Oval on Tuesday.

“Roy + Root + Stokes = Kohli’s total in the game today, lads,” Bharat Army tweeted.

England got off to a horror start after being put in to bat when Bumrah (6-19) rattled Jason Roy’s stumps with an in-swinger and then deceived Joe Root two balls later with a delivery that nipped away. Both players failed to get off the mark.

Ben Stokes also perished for a duck in the following over, edging behind off Shami (3-31), before Bumrah accounted for Jonny Bairstow (7) and Liam Livingstone (0) to leave England reeling at 26-5 in overcast conditions.

Captain Jos Buttler (30) and Moeen Ali (14) led a brief recovery but both were dismissed in quick succession before a 35-run ninth-wicket stand between David Willey (21) and Brydon Carse (15) pushed England past 100.

The home side were eventually bowled out in 25.2 overs.
