10 Tweets That Show Fans’s Anger Towards Team India

Last updated:

Team India had arrived in South Africa with great expectations, especially after the kind of form they have had since the restart of the game in the pandemic era. They had started, too, with a bang in the first Test, but then the train got derailed and lost the next two Tests and then were white-washed 3-0 in the ODI series.

India ringed in four changes for the third ODI, a dead rubber. They managed to take the game really close, into the last over, but once again the final outcome went in the opposition’s favour. A 4-run loss in Cape Town concluded India’s tour of what could have been.

“Quite an exciting game, just disappointed we ended up on the losing side. We gave ourselves a real chance, something we can learn from and get better. Quite obvious where we’ve gone wrong. No shying away from it. At times our shot selection has been poor. Even with the ball we haven’t been hitting the right areas consistently. Have played well in patches but haven’t built pressure over a long period,” said captain KL Rahul, after becoming India’s first ODI skipper to lose each of his first three ODIs in charge.

India had started much better with the ball than they had most of the time over the past two years with a couple of earl strikes, but allowed the South African batting to flourish with opener Quinton de Kock registering his 17th ODI ton – and 6th versus India – and put up 287 on the board.


In the chase, after losing Rahul early, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli led the way with fifites, before the slow nature of the pitch got them both out. Sandwiched between them was the absolute hara-kiri shot of Rishabh Pant. Shreyas Iyer and Suryakumar Yadav got starts but neither could go deep in the chase.

Deepak Chahar‘s knock of 54 off 34 balls kept the game alive, and rose the hope of a win from an unlikely position. But once again, the home pacers were smart with their change of pace and elicited false shots from the Indian tailenders.

Indian fans were left furious, frustrated, distressed with the performance in the third ODI and in the series, especially given India started as favourites and South Africa were missing their two star fast bowlers, Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada.

Here are some of the fans’ reactions to India’s loss:
