After a stunning performance in the Test match series against Sri Lanka, Team India fell flat in front of the visitors during the first ODI on Sunday.
In captain Virat Kohli’s absence, stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma’s led Indian team endured a surprisingly difficult outing at Dharamsala’s HPCA stadium as the seamers rattled the Men in Blue from the word go.
The top 5 batsmen including Rohit, Dinesh Karthik failed to even reach the double-digit mark as the visitors bowled with pace and venom.
With the hosts being bundled for 112, Twitterati had a gala time trolling Team India for their performance.
There were quite many mentions to Kohli who is reportedly in Tuscany, Italy for his wedding with Anushka Sharma. The fans missed Kohli’s presence and posted hilarious memes and trolls explaining his state of mind.
Here’s how fans reacted on Twitter:
Ravi Shastri- Hello Hello…..virat virat….Can u hear me?? Can u hear me??
Virat- yes yes….I can hear u. What happened??
Shastri- Bhai shaadi cancel kar de. Come back asap.#IndvsSL

Indian batting line-up without Virat Kohli is like a bank account without a linked Aadhar Card. #IndvSL
