It is not the first time that the fans are raging supremacy battles among themselves due to their idols. These things on social media are very frequent nowadays. And now fans of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are raging supremacy battle among themselves based on the two cricketer's ICC test rankings.
The last time the Indian captain hit an international century was in November 2019. He scored 156 runs against Bangladesh during a day-night test match. Since then we did not witness a century from the captain. Also his recent performance in the test match against England has not been going great and this led to many trolls as well. Just because he is having a hard time in the series, does not mean that and will forget his past contributions or the Indian team. He has single-handedly won many matches for the country in the previous years and undoubtedly he will do so in the future. As some say; "form is temporary but class is permanent", Virat Kohli will definitely bounce back harder than before.
There have been a lot of rumours about a rift between 2 of the best Indian batsmen; Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. But they have never talked anything about it and kept continuing their legacy on the field.
For Rohit Sharma, he has always been a consistent batsman and one of the most impactful one as well. He is also India's second-best batsman in the ongoing test against England. It is quite bizarre that he was not a regular member of the Indian test team 2-3 years back. He was included in the home test series against South Africa and since then we are clearly seeing his impact in every test match. Rohit Sharma has always put his best consistently and no wonders why he is one of the best in his profession right now. Also, his legacy in limited-overs is unmatchable.
By performing consistently and laying strong foundations for the future cricketers, he has made his name in the top 10 of the ICC test rankings for batsmen.
Virat Kohli has secured the 5th position in the ICC test rankings for batsmen with 776 rating points whereas Rohit Sharma secured the 6th position with 773 rating points. Rishabh pant has also earned a place in this top 10 list. He secured the 7th position with 736 rating points.
As cricket lovers we should be proud of what these two batsmen are doing for our country's cricket team. It is a matter of pride for us to see 3 of Indian cricketers in this prestigious list. But there is abundance of trollers and toxic people on social media. The so called 'cricket lovers' are continuously reacting poorly and fighting unnecessary on Twitter.
