Fans Connecting Jofra Archer’s 2015 Tweet To The Upcoming ‘Virushka’-Parenthood

As the news is spinning in the thin air, there is a reason why fans have nicknamed Jofra Archer cricket’s ‘Nostradamus’. Apparently, the Barbados-born, English all-rounder’s Twitter account has, on more than one occasion, made starkly accurate future-prophecy. And now, whether or not they’ve been composed keeping some concealed secret in mind without any of our knowledge, that’s a question Jofra is yet to answer. It however does amuse his fans when his seemingly-random predictions turn out accurate.

Likewise, on Thursday, something similar occurred when some fans linked one of Jofra’s tweets from 2015 to Virat Kohli’s upcoming parenthood declaration. The Indian skipper clasped to his social accounts yesterday, for sharing a picture featuring himself, and his pregnant wife, Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma. ‘And then, we were three. Arriving Jan 2021,’ the caption on their photo read.


One of the most adorable couple, ‘Virushka’, being the renowned celebrity duo that they are, received a whole bouquet of well-wishes and congratulations. The recent likes showered by Hardik Pandya, Chris Gayle, Rohit Sharma- and several other cricketers were amongst the first to drop in their felicitations. In the meantime, stars such as Kiara Advani, Priyanka Chopra, and many others from the entertainment contingent reacted sooner as well.

Now, as of reference, where does Jofra’s name feature among those names? Currently, it features nowhere, and he’s yet to congratulate the duo–should he determine to do so. But it recently came to light that one of his former posts on Twitter makes a lot of chronological-sense, with regards to the Kohlis’ pregnancy-news.


Jofra made a crisp tweet, on the 1st of January 2015, that just read, ‘January 5th…’. The tweet didn’t really make any sense at the time- but provided the foreseeable nature of his prior tweets, a good chunk of fans are willing to bet that the new-comer in the Kohli family will be born on that very date!


Also as for the headlines airing now, Kohli is in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), awaiting in joining his Indian and South-African RCB teammates. Jofra, in the meantime, has been rested by the English management after featuring in consecutive test-series against the Windies and Pakistan. Nevertheless, his fans expect him to feature in England’s upcoming LoI series against Australia starting from September.
