Twitterati brutally trolls Team India after they lose the Test series against South Africa

Posted On / /

Team India lost the first Test at Cape Town by 72 runs and hoped for a better turn of events when the second Test started on 13 January at the Centurion.

The Test match got off to a controversial start after Virat Kohli announced his decision of leaving Bhuvneshwar Kumar, India’s best player from the Cape Town Test, out of the playing XI. Parthiv Patel came in for an injured Wriddhiman Saha and KL Rahul replaced Shikhar Dhawan. One of India’s best batsmen on foreign soil, Ajinkya Rahane, was once again overlooked.

South Africa, who won the toss on a bright Saturday morning, decided to have a bat first and amassed 335. In reply, India could manage only 307 despite captain Virat Kohli scoring a masterful 153.

The Proteas started the second innings watchfully to score a match-winning total of 258 helped by India’s uninspired fielding efforts.

Chasing 287 for victory, India could muster only 151 runs to hand South Africa a 135-run victory and give the hosts an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

Following Team India’s drubbing, Twitterati vented their anger at the Indian cricket board, Kohli and the players for their dismal performance.
