Virat Kohli once again failed to deliver his best in the ongoing tour of New Zealand. Trent Boult dismissed the Indian skipper for just 19 in the second innings of the first Test against the Black Caps. Kohli has failed to score a century in the last 20 innings, and netizens went berserk by trolling the Indian talisman left, right and centre.
Here is how Twitter reacted:

Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari grind it out but New Zealand in total control of the game
India vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane and middle-order batsman Hanuma Vihari remained unbeaten on 25 and 15 respectively at the end of Day 3 in Wellington on Sunday. India finished the day at 144 for four but are still trailing New Zealand by 39 runs.
Prithvi Shaw, Cheteshwar Pujara and Kohli failed to get a big score despite getting starts. Mayank Agarwal scored his fourth Test half-century but was dismissed soon after by Tim Southee as he edged one down the leg to BJ Watling. Trent Boult was the pick of the bowlers for New Zealand, finishing the day with figures of three for 27.
Earlier, Ishant Sharma had picked up his 11th five-wicket haul in Tests to help India bundle out New Zealand for 348, which gave them a robust first-innings lead of 183 runs.
