South Africa has thrashed Pakistan in the ongoing three-match Test series by winning the first two Tests and now there is an opportunity for a clean sweep. South African skipper Faf du Plessis is eager to whitewash Pakistan, a chance which they missed against India last year.

After the match, Faf said, “I don't think we will be resting our bowlers for the third test because we changed it up against India last year and lost out on an opportunity for a whitewash #savpak

Indian fans found this statement insulting to the Indian team and went on to roast the South African captain. They believe South Africa didn't rest their key bowlers against India in the said Test match.

In that game, India was bowled out by the hosts on just 187 runs in the first innings. However, they came back strong and didn't allow South Africa to take a big lead. SA could only manage a lead of 7 runs. The second innings was owned by Indian team as they not only scored 247 runs but also skittled the home team on just 177 runs to win the game.

Indian fans lashed out at the Proteas skipper for his unsupported statement.
Here is how they reacted:
