In India, cricket is like a religion to many. When their favorite team wins or when their favorite cricketer plays well, people celebrate it like a festival. Cricket is one sport that binds people together and serves as their favorite time pass as well. It would not be wrong to say that people can live without eating food, but not without cricket. While cricket is a medium that can make people go crazy, there are people who even make cricketers go crazy. This happens very often these days on micro-blogging site Twitter.
Numerous times people write their heart out on the platform and even troll cricketers. Sometimes the tweets are so mean that some cricketers get angry and try to shut down such trolls. However, a few take it in good humor and even share the meanest of tweets with their fans.
This time something similar happened when cricketer Dinesh Karthik (the newly appointed captain of KKR) decided to sit down and read the mean tweets on his twitter account. In the video that is now going viral on the internet, Karthik can be seen reading the cruellest tweets and laughing at them. At certain points in the video, his facial expressions say it all.
One user even quoted that DK is nowhere equivalent to Gautam Gambhir and even does not deserves to be the captain. Here are some of the tweets, which clearly indicate how much people have hated him time and again.
Innumerable talents ?? Although I agree that he has had the potential to be a great WK batsman, he has been far too inconsistent whenever he’s played for India, a shame that he’s never justified his talent. A guy who started his career before MSD but never reached any heights.
