As India chases a huge total of 329 runs, all eyes were on the batsmen to perform. Early wickets of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan didn’t help, and Indians prayed for Virat Kohli to take his best onto the pitch. But after facing 13 balls, and scoring only one run, Kohli was caught by B Haddin, and was forced to walk back to the dressing room. As the entire stadium watched in silence, Twitter took things to another course, and blamed it on that one person sitting in the stands watching the match. As it turns out, Virat Kohli’s alleged partner Anushka Sharma was at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG), and as soon as his wicket fell, Twiterverse was abuzz with the blame-game, with one user even calling her ‘national panuati’ (which means bad omen).
Anushka is trending on the top third spot in India, and is facing a lot of unecessary flak from Twitter users. Other hashtags that are trending in India include #ChaloWinItBack, #DareToBeDhoni, Yuvi and Go India. If you happen to be at work, travelling or just about any reason due to which you cannot watch the match live on TV, here’s how you can watch it live from your smartphone.
Here’s our pick of the nastiest tweets coming out from Twitter right now:

I feel sorry for Anushka. To go Down Under to see VIRAT go down under must be heart-wrenching. She could have easily seen him at home.
