Shikhar Dhawan was brutally trolled for posting a picture with Virat Kohli, Cheteswar Pujara after bagging a pair against Essex in the 3-day practice match. Dhawan could not get off-the-mark against Essex. This was the only opportunity the Indian players got to get a good knock ahead of the 1st Test against England. Dhawan took to Twitter to post a picture of him standing in slips along with Pujara and Kohli. Little did Dhawan know that he will get trolled. Dhawan’s post read, “Kaise na ho gujara.. jab saath ho Kohli aur Pujara!” Also Read - MI vs CSK Dream11 IPL 2020: Rohit Sharma Could Edge Virat Kohli's Record Against MS Dhoni's Team
After the post, Dhawan got trolled brutally by fans.
It seems fans want KL Rahul in the team after the dismal performance of Shikhar Dhawan in the practice game.
