After South African opener Dean Elgar got out for 0, Indian fans trolled him for complaining about Indian facilities. "Tea wasn't served well for Elgar. So...he got out to complain about it." Other tweets read, "Elgar c Saha b Hotel in Ranchi," and "Elgar'll be getting more time to complain." Elgar had criticized the quality of food and hotels in India.
Team India opener Rohit Sharma trolled journalists in the press conference following his maiden double hundred. "I wanted to make full use of the opportunity to bat on top of the order otherwise a lot could have happened as you write a lot about me," he said. "I think you will write good things about me now," he added. Earlier Rohit was fairly criticized for his dismissal performances in test cricket and termed as a white-ball bully by the press. Yet he has much to prove in SENA countries but this level of performance would definitely ease a lot of pressure out of him.
Before that, a video of Team India captain Virat Kohli suggesting Ravindra Jadeja do 'riding a horse' celebration from the dressing room has gone viral. In the video, we can see Jadeja doing his trademark sword celebration after reaching his fifty, while Kohli gestures from the dressing room asking Jadeja to do the horse celebration. Jadeja scored 51 runs off 119 deliveries.
Finally, a troll on Twitter mocked ex-India opener Aakash Chopra for playing few matches for India and becoming a commentator. The troll said that he should play 2-3 international matches and become a commentator like Chopra. Responding to him, Chopra tweeted, "Yeah. Good idea. There are 296 Test cricketers in India. In a country of 1.3 billion people. Easy peasy....lemon squeezy."
