Team India heartbreakingly lost the thrilling Test match at Edgbaston against England by 31 runs. Virat Kohli’s heroic efforts with the bat went in vain as his fellow mates never came to the terms with the moving ball in the game. Many felt that it was the contest between Kohli and England and when he was dismissed in the second innings, the chase was botched up by the visitors. However, Sanjay Manjrekar also tweeted about the same and stressed the fact that cricket is a team game only to get trolled on Twitter.

As far as the performance of the batsmen in concerned, Manjrekar is indeed spot on as none of the Indian batsmen contributed more than 31 in both the innings apart from the Indian skipper. But the bowling attack was relentless and ruthless when it came to picking 20 wickets which are a must to win a Test match.

Bowlers compliment Kohli

So, when it came to the team effort, the likes of Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma and Ravi Ashwin complimented Kohli beautifully. While Shami was penetrative whenever the ball was handed over to him, the world witnessed new Ashwin with more variations. Ishant Sharma also bowled like a dream in the second innings and picked a five-wicket haul to keep the hosts on the tenterhooks.

However, Sanjay Manjrekar, in his tweet, indirectly took a dig at the whole team and went on to say that the team effort from England won them the game and for India, only Kohli gave his best. “When it’s a contest between a team and an individual the team generally wins. #INDvENG,” he tweeted.

Manjrekar’s words were perfect for the home side as different players stepped up for them at crucial junctures of the match. Sam Curran, Ben Stokes, Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow performed well. But the former Indian cricketer overlooked the effort of the Indian bowlers which irked many fans and lashed out at him for his tweet. They reminded him of their efforts and told him that it was not only a Kohli show at Edgbaston.

Here’s how he was trolled:
