Bengaluru, Febraury 27: Despite being the only positives for India in the first Test, Ishant Sharma and Mayank Agarwal were not spared by fans on social media.
New Zealand crushed India by 10 wickets to take 1-0 lead in the first of the two-Test series in Wellington on Monday (February 24).
Sharma was the pick of the bowlers for the visitors with five wickets in the first innings, while Agarwal top-scored in the match with a total of 92 runs from the two innings.
Sharma and Agarwal took to Twitter on Wednesday (Febraury 26) to share pictures of their travel diary and one picture which included India captain Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant received some rage.
"Straight outta Wellington." tweeted Mayank.
Soon after the duo posted the pictures, fans started trolling them as one fan asked them to focus on their game rather than posing for pictures, while another drew comparison of the players on the pitch and off it.
"Stop posing and start playing," a fan tweeted.
