A few days after Pakistan replaced India at the No.1 spot of ICC Test rankings, some Pakistani fans have started mocking the Indian cricket team and captain Virat Kohli on social media websites.

A cropped image was posted by a fan wherein Pakistan captain Misbah ul Haq is lifting Kohli in a way seen in entertainment style wrestling. 

Team India were crowned number 1 Test side and had to win the fourth and last Test against the West Indies to retain their top position in the ranking.

However, rain played spoil-sport for a major part of the last Test and Kohli's men had to settle for a draw in the final match. 

India still managed to comprehensively win the Tests series 2-0. 

Pakistan had earlier secured a 2-2 draw in the four match Test series in England.

This is not the first time, a cricket fan from a rival nation has taken a shameful dig at India or the captain of the Indian cricket team. 

Ahead of the Asia Cup final held earlier this year, Bangladesh cricket fans had posted an insensitive and derogatory image of India's limited-overs captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's severed head being carried by their pacer Taskin Ahmed.

This particular image had caused massive outrage and the Indian fans got a chance to give it back to their Bangaldeshi counterparts after Dhoni's men defeated the host in the final and lifted the 2016 Asia Cup.
