India's initial hitter, Shikhar Dhawan, gave a perfect response on Thursday to the team of critics in India. Several fans revolted in criticizing the Indian cricket team after Shikhar Dhawan had posted a photo on his official Instagram account. "Crazy guys and nonstop fun @ hardikpandya93 … With an invaluable @rishabpant expression," he had subtitled. The photo showed Dhawan lying down while the SUV Hardik Pandya was trying to remove Dhawan's cap. Rishabh Pant was also visible in the image, with an "invaluable" expression. However, the post did not go well with a section of admirers and critics who in turn began to irritate the Indian team for their abject performances in England. In response, Dhawan posted the following message.
"People who have been writing negative things, we are also hurt the way they are, it is important to learn from our mistakes and move forward, we give our best when we walk on the ground and most importantly, as a team we should have a good mentality before the next game We can not change the past So we do our hard work on the ground as we always keep our process strong After the practice, important to laugh, be happy, so we create positivity in the team That's what the champions do. Easy to be happy when you win. Warriors stay positive when things also go down. Thanks to the fans who still support us! ", He wrote.
Indian starters Dhawan and KL Rahul have not been consistently scoring runs in the five-game test series against England.
Dhawan has accumulated 158 runs in three games, while Rahul has scored 113 in four games. Murali Vijay, who was eliminated from the team in the last two races, could only manage 26 races in two games.
India is behind the series of tests and will hope to regain some pride when they play the fifth and final test in the oval from September 7.
