Virat Kohliâ€™s Indian cricket team are trailing the three-match ODI series against Australia 0-1 after their 34-run loss in the Sydney ODI. The team heads to Adelaide in what is a must-win situation for the side. Prior to the match, Kohli shared a photo with Anushka Sharma and this has resulted in severe trolling from social media users. Many users pointed out that Kohli should be practising and some stated his recent â€˜poorâ€™ form, having been dismissed for 23 in the Test match and for 3 in the ODI at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Australia made 288/5 thanks to fifties from Peter Handscomb, Shaun Marsh and Usman Khawaja but it was Jason Behrendorff and Jhye Richardson who ripped out the top order to leave India reeling at 4/3 after four overs.
Despite Rohit Sharmaâ€™s 22nd century and MS Dhoniâ€™s 68th fifty, India lost the game and this has not gone down well with many users. Kohli shared the photo on his official Twitter handle and here is a sample of some of the Tweets which trolled the Indian cricket team captain.

The trolling of Virat Kohli for sharing a photo with Anushka Sharma shows that trolls have nothing better to do in life. Their trolling indicates the short term memory loss, having conveniently forgotten that Kohliâ€™s Indian cricket team won a Test series in Australia, which is the first time any Asian nation has won a Test series Down Under. The trolls point out to Kohliâ€™s â€˜poorâ€™ form. Many trolls have conveniently forgotten that Kohlilâ€™s dismissal for 3 in the Sydney ODI was the first time in 22 innings that Kohli had fallen for a single digit score.
Trolls pointed out to his dismissal in the Sydney Test match for 23 but they conveniently overlook the fact that Kohli managed to average 40 with a brilliant century on a tough wicket in Perth during the recently concluded series. Adelaide, which is the venue for the second ODI, has great memories for Kohli, who scored a century in his last ODI during the league game against Pakistan in the 2015 World Cup.
