Virat Kohli came under some criticism from the cricketing world on Monday after he mocked England’s Barmy Army by pretending to play the trumpet, the soundtrack of the home side’s fanclub, as India took another wicket. With some labelling the act “classless” it seems apt to remind onlookers that the Barmy Army themselves will have no issue with Kohli giving some banter back after a series spent being waved off with facetious “cheerio!”‘s as he has struggled for big runs. The visiting captain is so important to Test cricket because of moments like this, in which he seemingly singlehandedly intensifies each element of theatre the game throws up. Long may he continue to do so.
