It seems that Aussie fans and former Australian players are still not over the fact that men-in-blue led by Virat Kohli thrashed Australia both in three-match Test series by 2-1 and in five-match One Day International by 4-1. That's why they are trying to rile up Indian cricketer and cricket fans with their antics.
Dean Jones, who is also known as the 'Professor Deano', is a former Australian cricketer, cricket Commentator, analyst and author, on 22 October tried to downplay Indian skipper Virat Kohli's milestones and later got trolled on micro-blogging site Twitter.
In the first One-Day International match against New Zealand at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday, Virat Kohli created a few more records with his bat.Apart from getting his 31st ODI centuries, he became the fastest cricketer in the world to score 1000 runs in One Day International against Kiwi team.
Indian skipper has just taken 17 innings to create the history with his bat and by doing so he dethroned none other than Dean Jones from the top spot. The Aussie player had taken 19 innings to score 1000 runs against New Zealand.
'Professor Deano' was replying to an Indian fan's post on Twitter to congratulate rather taunt the 28-year-old cricketer and wrote, "Well played @imVkohli !! But then again. it's only New Zealand!"

Other than becoming the fastest cricketer to score 1000 ODI runs against New Zealand, Virat Kohli also left Ricky Pointing behind in the number of ODI centuries. On Sunday, Indian skipper struck his 31st hundred as he became the second-highest century-maker in One-day International and is now behind only the legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar, who has 49 ODI century.
