As cricket in India is considered to be a religion and cricketers as a god, the fans of Indian Skipper on 5th August slammed Bangladesh batsman Sabbir Rahman on micro blogging site Twitter.

It all started after Sabbir scored a wonderful half-century against Australia in Chittagong and was compared to Kohli by Australia spinner Nathan Lyon.

Lyon said, “He's a good player, (Sabbir) he reminds me of Virat Kohli.”

“Kohli is probably a pretty good role model to have in the subcontinent. That's only on (Sabbir’s) persona out there and the way he walks around the crease and the shots he's played here.”

When Sabbir was asked about the praise that he got, he said, “I can become a batsman like Virat Kohli, everything is possible.”

But the comparison of Sabbir with Kohli was not digestible for few fans and they took no time in reacting 'harshly' on Twitter.

Here are some of those reactions by Twitter users:
