2nd Test: Indian cricket fans troll Shikhar Dhawan for poor show

After a brief absence, Shikhar Dhawan finally returned to the Indian top-order when he was picked ahead of the veteran Gautam Gambhir for the second Test against New Zealand at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on 30 September.

But, while his fans and the Indian team would have expected the southpaw to mark his presence in the match, Dhawan was dismissed way too early for his liking by Matt Henry. The left-hander went for a cut only to chop it back onto the stumps in the second over of the match.

Dhawan failed to live up to the expectations of the fans and Indian team management which further casts a shadow over his place in the side in near future. In his past 10 Test innings, Dhawan has scored a paltry 243 runs including just one fifty.

Minutes after his cheap dismissal, Dhawan was trending on the social media with multiple comments aimed at him. Though he still has another innings to redeem himself, the Twitterati didn't shy away from taking a dig at the Indian opener.

Here's a look at some of the tweets aimed at the Indian opener:
