Anushka Sharma faced unnecessary bashing on social media on Saturday after Virat Kohli-led India were thrashed by hosts Australia in the first Test at Adelaide by eight wickets. It is not the first time the Bollywood actress has faced criticism for no fault of her. Social media targetted Anushka after the Indian side were bowled out for 36 – which was their lowest-ever total in Test history.

It would be interesting if Anushka – who is outspoken and bold – reacts to this or not. In the past, Kohli came to her defense when fans accused Anushka of being the reason for his poor form.

While some who trolled Anushka unnecessarily became a little too personal some even opted to go under the belt.
Here is how Anushka got trolled:
Kohli – who was the top-scorer in the first innings – will not be a part of the Indian team for the remaining three Tests as he will be on paternity leave.
His absence would be a massive setback for India in the four-match Test series where the formidable hosts have already taken a 1-0 lead.
