There were plenty of hopes from the Indian Test team as they embarked on their tour of South Africa having won 9 consecutive Test series on the trot. However, the world No. 1 Test team couldn’t quite prove their mettle in the overseas conditions once again. In particular, the Indian batsmen have been found out throughout the four innings of both the Tests against South Africa.

After conceding the first Test by 72 runs in Cape Town, it was expected that Virat Kohli and company will bounce back in the second Test. Despite getting a subcontinent-like pitch at SuperSport Park in Centurion, Indian batsmen couldn’t able to adjust their game as the visitors got bundled out for 307 and 151 in their two innings respectively.

None of the Indian batters barring Virat Kohli (153 off 217 balls) crossed the mark of 50 in the first innings while Rohit Sharma was the highest run-scorer in the second innings with 47.

After such a miserable show, the backlash from Twitteratis was pretty much expected. Let’s have a look at some of the tweets criticizing Team India’s poor performance:
