After Smith's 144, comparisons between him and India skipper Virat Kohli have started to make the rounds on social media.

Making a comeback in Tests after a year-long ban for his involvement in ball-tampering, Smith single-handedly dragged the visitors out of a hole, helping his team to a decent first innings total even as the other Aussie batsmen found the going tough.

Australia were reeling at 122/8 at one stage before Smith's gritty knock took them to 284 on Day One.

Smith's 24th Test century came in just 118 innings, five fewer than what Kohli took to reach the milestone, Soon after, a fan tweeted: "Steve Smith has 9 Ashes hundreds. Virat Kohli? Zero."

However, the fan seemed to be blissfully unaware that Kohli cannot participate in the Ashes series as the coveted rubber is only played between two nations -- England and Australia.

Meanwhile, New Zealand all-rounder Jimmy Neesham too took a humorous jibe at Kohli on Saturday by dragging the India captain into the Ashes banter.

After England opener Rory Burns hit an unbeaten 125 on Day 2 of the ongoing Ashes Test, Neesham tweeted: "Rory Burns now has more runs in his first Ashes innings than Virat Kohli has in his entire Ashes career."

Kohli is leading the Indian national cricket team against the West Indies.
