Indian batsman Rohit Sharma couldn't find a place in the Indian Test team for England after a flop show against South Africa earlier this year.
He wasn't picked for the last two Tests against England when India saw failures from their openers in first two games. However, in the third Test, the openers KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan stitched up a partnership of 60 in both innings.
The only two changes India made for the last two Test is they dropped Kuldeep Yadav and Murali Vijay and brought Prithvi Shaw and Hanuma Vihari in their places.
Rohit Sharma fans were upset over selectors' move to not give Rohit a chance as an opener. They lashed out at the Indian skipper Virat Kohli for the omission of their favorite cricketer in the Test side.
They reacted fiercely on Twitter and were bitter against Kohli in their tweets.
Here is how they reacted:
