New Delhi, Aug 15: Cricket is a game of uncertainities, the Galle Test match played between India and Sri Lanka became a perfect example of the above mentioned phrase.
In what could be termed as sudden twist of fate, Sri Lankan bowlers snatched an easy victory from the jaws of Indian team. Sri Lankan tigers defeated Team India by 63 runs after restricting Indian batters at 112 on the fourth day of the game.
Left-arm spinner Rangana Herath claimed seven wickets to bowl out India, chasing 176 in the second innings, for 112.
Soon after Team India's batting collapse in the second inning irked the fans started comparing skipper Virat Kohli with former India captain MS Dhoni, who was being criticised for Team India's poor performance in Test matches.
Some blamed Kohli's decision of playing 6 batsmen while some were seen missing the match finisher in Dhoni. Then there were those who supported young captain Kohli.
Due to this, 'Dhoni' became a 3rd top trend on Twitter.
Here are a few tweets:
