Team India went 0-2 down in the five-match Pataudi Trophy 2018 Test series against England, as they lost the second Test at Lord's by a shameful margin of an innings and 159 runs.
Team India fans are furious at this loss and have lashed out at social media blaming different players for the loss and trying to find a scapegoat.
As India continued their poor performance outside the subcontinent, fans couldn't stop themselves to lash out at the Indian coach.
When James Anderson and Stuart Broad were sending Indian batsmen back to the dressing room one-by-one, Indian fans were getting ready with their tweets to target coach Ravi Shastri.
The Twitterati had lashed out Shastri for his fat tummy on Twitter. After the loss at Lord's, fans couldn't let the former Indian get away.
Here is how Twitterati slammed Shastri:
The role of "Ravi Shastri"has always been controversial & I do not see any reason to hold him back on the post of Coach.Just give Him marching orders & bring in Kumble who cheers all the 16 players instead of just one by Ravi.— Totlani Krishan (@kktotlani) August 13, 2018
Kohli is seriously missing an advisor...Ravi Shastri is not helping and he is also not having a trusted VC or comrade whom he can fall back upon for that purpose...apart from Kohli no one's place looks secured in Tests...who will advice like 'drop me in the next game'! #ENGvIND— Raktim (@cosmicguru_in) August 13, 2018
Can anyone in the Indian 'team mamagement' explain as to what sort of planning and preparation went into this England tour? I know one man had planned well: Ravi shastri. He said that India is not going to play for draw. And he is right.— notajournalist (@amitmirror) August 12, 2018

1. Vijay is finished
2. KL Rahul is a Dhawan 2.0 shitting the bed in overseas tests.
3. Ravi Shastri MUST be sacked after this tour. Man is stealing a living. Just a yes man to Kohli.
Would love to see Ravi Shastri in the post-match press conference accept the defeat, sound less arrogant and talk about how he plans to turn it around. But we all know that ain’t happening! ????— Ajith Ramamurthy (@Ajith_tweets) August 12, 2018
Ravi Shastri is Team India's cheerleader. He gets paid to cheer up Virat Kohli. Anil Kumble did not have this skill. All he has is 619 test wickets .— $$ Adit¥∆ M∆€∆£ $$ (@jhunjhunwala) August 12, 2018
