While Team India suffered a crushing defeat in the Day/Night Test against Australia in Adelaide, the so-called fans completely lost the plot on Twitter, blaming Anushka Sharma for Virat Kohli's performance.
This has been a regular trend, whenever Team India fails to get the job done. For the record, Australia won the pink-ball Test by 8 wickets, after India got stream rolled to their lowest Test score i.e. 36/9 retired hurt.
Also, Virat won't play the final three Tests as Anushka is due to give birth to their first child in early January. And it's safe to say that Kohli would've wanted to leave Australia on a better note.
Here are some of the Twitter reactions:
Anushka Is waiting for kohli
Kohli Can't let her wait

However, many lived up to their tag of fans as they came out in support of the Bollywood actress.
