For the unversed, sportspersons across the world have been taking the knee in the Black Lives Matter movement to show their stance support against racisim. The BLM movement was started after the death of George Floyd, an African-American, at the hands of a policeman in Minneapolis in Unites States.

Team India took the knee in the playing area while others took the knee at the other side of the boundary ropes. This is the first time when the Indian players have taken a knee. West Indies and England were the first two teams to take the knee. Both the teams came up with this gesture before the opening Test of the series last year.

After the match, when Virat was asked about whose decision was to take the knee, Virat Kohli revealed: that it was “communicated to us by the management, the Pakistan team agreed to pay their tribute to the same cause.”

We accepted our side of things and that was how it was decided,” he added.

Meanwhile, fans on social media were left in awe of team India taking a stand against racism and joining the movement. However, a section of people on social media was left disappointed with team India taking a knee.

Several fans started trolling the Indian team and highlighted their hypocrisy after they took part in the Black Lives Matter movement by taking a knee. People slammed them for not speaking about any matters related to including the atrocities faced by minorities in their country or supporting facial creams etc.
