Kohli, who got the Aquaman portrayal, is undoubtedly one of the greatest batsmen of modern-day cricket as has won several matches for India. While Williamson – Superman, has been the backbone of the New Zealand team in the past couple of years.
Stokes, who got the Batman character, have played a crucial role in England’s maiden ODI World Cup triumph in 2019.
The original Justice League movie was released in 2017 but faced an underwhelming response from fans across the globe as they were unhappy with the CGI of Superman’s character which was played by Henry Cavill. Interestingly the original movie was also initially directed by Zack Snyder but in the midway Joss Whedon took the charge of the movie.
Meanwhile, Aquaman (Virat Kohli) and Batman (Ben Stokes) will lock horns on Thursday evening in the fourth T20I between India and England at Narendra Modi Stadium. England are currently leading the series with 2-1 as the hosts will look to bounce back in the series with two matches to spare.
Fans start to go crazy after ICC released the poster. Check out some of the replies to the ICC on behalf of the tweet.
