However, in the same thread New Zealand former allrounder Scott Styris has taken a dig at India’s long-standing issue of solving the No.4.
Combinations? Who will bat FOUR for India? Will Kuldeep keep his spot in front of Jadeja and Chahal? Will NZ lose a single match in this tournament? #classact

In response, cricketer-turned-commentator Aakash Chopra has given it back to Styris by saying how long Kiwis had to lose in the ICC’s mega event using ‘see no evil monkey’ emoticon.
All of the above with a minor adjustment—how many times NZ will lose in this tournament. 🙈
