India vs South Africa, 2nd Test: Twitteratti mocks Virat Kohli for dropping Bhuvneshwar Kumar

Here are some tweets that took a dig at the decision to drop Bhuvneshwar.


Indian skipper Virat Kohli, along with head coach Ravi Shastri, came under heavy criticism for dropping Ajinkya Rahane in the opening Test match of the three-match series.

Now, after their loss in the first Test by 72 runs, cricket lovers were expecting some changes in the team, and the changes happened. Three changes happened in India’s playing eleven from the first Test. KL Rahul replaced Shikhar Dhawan as opener, Parthiv Patel was included in place of Wriddhiman Saha and Ishant Sharma replaced the star Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar. However, the last change didn’t go well with the people if one goes by the reactions on Twitter.

 The changes Virat Kohli made in the Indian team was more or less expected but benching Kumar who had rattled South Africa’s batting line up in the first inning 4/87 in Newlands was a bit surprising.

Indian cricket fans are not happy with Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s exclusion and took it to micro-blogging site Twitter to express their anger.

Here are some tweets that took a dig at the decision to drop Bhuvneshwar:
