Team India’s World Cup run ended at the Sydney Cricket Ground. The fans were left shocked as the team was dumped out in the semifinals.
While most agreed that India had a terrible day on the field, some people decided to troll Anushka Sharma for the loss of Virat Kohli's wicket and the subsequent batting collapse. It did not matter that Anushka was not the one doing the batting, bowling or fielding. Some carried notes of dejection, others sarcasm, but a few were nasty. Readers, you be the judge of that.
This is what happens when Anushka is in stadium.— SinGH SaaB (@scratchysingh) March 26, 2015
Some of the most unpleasant tweets came from Kamaal R Khan.
I request to all the people to go n throw stones at the house of Anushka Sharma who is the main reason for the defeat of India. #AUSvIND— Kamaal R Khan-KRK (@kamaalrkhan) March 26, 2015
The hits just kept on coming
Anushka : I want you here in 5 mins Virat: OK darling— Dr Tasvir Barot (@Drtasvir) March 26, 2015
Anushka (wife) Kohli (husband) Rohit (Saala) Happy family in dressing room. #IndvsAus— Ishita Chawla (@QueenIshu) March 26, 2015
But lets get a few things clear, first it's Virat who failed with the bat not Anushka, second Kohli is a great batsman but that does not make him immune to failure and finally, it is idiotic to to harass someone over a silly superstition (panauti).
But it was heartening to see a lot of people speak up against the idiocy that was being spewed against Anushka and Virat.
Come on man... STOP blaming Anushka!!! He did not play well. It's not her fault. Grow up!— Aarti Madan (@AartiMadan) March 26, 2015
Making Anushka jokes has got to be the lowest form of cricket humour.— ????? ????? (@kanikagahlaut) March 26, 2015
Kamaal Khan also deservedly got some stick for his foolish tirade.
Kamaal R Khan is urging people to boycott Anushka's films. Guess he doesn't want to be the only one whose films open to empty theatres...— Dr. Neha R Vijayakar (@Faintest_Ideas) March 26, 2015
Team India failed to reach the finals despite it's strong run up to the semis because of the team put on a poor performance, their only one this tournament. Anushka has nothing to do with it.
