Mohammad Shami had received a massive abuse on social media after India’s loss to Pakistan in their Men’s T20 World Cup opener. He was labeled a “traitor” and asked to “go back to Pakistan” after he went for 43 runs in his 3.5 overs in India’s ten-wicket defeat.

Ahead of their match against New Zealand, Virat Kohli spoke strongly in support of Shami and called the abusers “spineless” and “pathetic human beings”.

After his statement, trolls targeted the INdian captain and also his ten-month-old daughter, Vamika. Twitter reacted strongly to these trolls.
