Twitter brutally trolls Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan for getting out cheaply

Posted On

It doesn’t take much for some Twitter users to start trolling and that is exactly what happened after Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan and skipper Virat Kohli was dismissed cheaply in India’s first innings of the first Test against South Africa on Friday.


After South African batting crumbled on 286, it was time for the Indian top order to be decimated by the lethal pace attack of the Proteas. First Murali Vijay fell to Vernon Philander edging one to the slips and then Shikhar Dhawan was sent back to the pavilion by Dale Steyn who was making a comeback after a year.

Then it brought the two most trustworthy batsmen, Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli at the crease. Virat, however, couldn’t last for long on the crease and edged a delivery from Morne Morkel to the keeper Quinton De Kock and departed for just 5.


As the Indian captain fell cheaply, Twitter can’t hold back its anger and lashed out at Kohli and Dhawan for being dismissed after playing a rash shot.

India ended the day on 28 for three, trailing the hosts by 258 runs.

Here are some of the Twitter reactions:
