Former cricketer Gautam Gambhir was brutally trolled on social media for his comments about Virat Kohli as India prepares for the 2022 ICC T20 World Cup.
Gambhir recently fired shots at the talismanic goalscorer, urging the former India captain to score runs for the team rather than individual records. Ahead of the warm-up match against Australia on Star Sports, the cricketer-turned-politician said:
“Do races that help Indian win the World Championship, don’t focus on individual records.”
The comments didn’t sit well with many Indian fans, who slammed Gambhir on Twitter. While some said the former cricketer is jealous of Kohli, others highlighted his batting records at T20 World Cups.
Here are some of the reactions:
A fan asked:
Virat Kohli scored 19 runs in the warm-up game against Australia
India are currently playing defending champions Australia in their warm-up match at the Gabba in Brisbane.
KL Rahul gave the tourists a quick start after Australian skipper Aaron Finch got the men in blue batting first. India added 78 runs for the first wicket in just 7.3 overs before Australia made a comeback with two quick wickets.
Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav added 42 runs for the third wicket before the former potted to Mitchell Marsh in the deep square leg region. The former Indian captain managed to score 19 balls out of 13, including a boundary and a six each.
Suryakumar (50 from 33) provided a late boost as India scored 186/7 in their 20 overs. Kane Richardson was the pick for the Australian bowlers and returned with numbers of 4/30.
In response, Australia got off to a flying start thanks to their captain. At the time of writing, the home side was 94/1 after 10 overs, with Finch strong on 41 from 32. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was India’s lone wicket-taker.
