Despite a win at Trent Bridge Team India will have to be cautious in the next two games as the hosts England are standing with a lead of 2-1 in five-match series. Another win would give them an unassailable lead in the series. Indian fans know it, so does James Vince, who is called for the fourth Test into the England squad.
The 27-year-old was dropped after the tour of New Zealand in April. He is added into the side as a back-up for Jonny Bairstow, who broke a finger in the third Test which England lost by a 203-run defeat at Trent Bridge.
Vince, after being added into the side, took Twitter to thank his fans and admirers for their best wishes. "Thank you for the messages of support. Very excited to be joining up with the squad @TheAgeasBowl next week. No better place to wrap the series up ????," he wrote.

But little did he know the jibe at Indian team would peeve the fans. He was slammed by the Indian supporters.
Here are the tweets:
