From the moment India’s playing eleven of second Test was declared, captain Virat Kohli along with team management and coach Ravi Shastri had come under heavy criticism for dropping Ajinkya Rahane and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

On the second day of second Test, other than skipper Kohli (85 batting) and opener Murali Vijay (46), no other Indian batsman was able to leave a mark on Proteas pacers. Cheteshwar Pujara once again ‘ran out’ of luck, literally, as he failed to open his account.

Pujara had joined Murali Vijay at the crease after the departure of KL Rahul. Pujara was looking to steal a run after guiding a ball towards Lungi Ngidi at mid-on but he fell short at the crease and Ngidi made no mistake in uprooting the bails.

Just after Pujara was sent back to pavilion, Twitterati started mocking captain Kohli for his ‘intent’ comment and Pujara for the obvious runout.

Earlier, during a press conference, Virat Kohli had said, “At the same time, we need to have intent because the kind of bowling attack they have – especially on these pitches they get extra bounce and they get extra pace off the wicket – you can’t be in a zone of not having intent and see off 35-40 overs.”

“You can’t just stand there and take whatever is coming your way and not have intent at all,” he further added.

Here what Twitter had to say about Kohli’s internet comment and Pujara’s runout:
