Indian team is currently in a very thin situation in the ongoing third of the four-match Test series against Australia. The hosts have come up with two changes in the playing XI as they picked young batter Shubman Gill in place of out-of-form senior batter KL Rahul. Apart from that, veteran pacer Umesh Yadav is also in the XI replacing Mohammed Shami.
Although the opener Shubman Gill failed to live up to the expectations and could score only 21 runs off 18 balls including three boundaries. Fans were expecting him to perform as he replaced the out-of-form KL Rahul. This poor performance gave a chance to a section of cricket fans to come up with some trolling reactions for both Shubman Gill and KL Rahul. They took to Twitter to troll both the batters for not performing up to the expectations of the team.
Here’s how fans reacted:

Talking about the current action of the match, the hosts are in big trouble as they have lost eight wickets only at the time of the start of the second session; the hosts’ skipper Rohit Sharma decided to bat first after having an upper hand during the flip of the coin. But this decision of batting first didn’t work for Team India.
At the time of filling this copy, India have lost eight wickets only on the score of 106 runs in 31 overs. Star all-rounder Axar Patel and lower-order batter Umesh Yadav are there in the middle with individual scores of 10 and 16 runs respectively.
Matthew Kuhnemann has amazed everyone with his impressive bowling by scalping four wickets for Australia. Other than him, veteran spinner Nathan Lyon has also picked three wickets alongside Todd Murphy, who also claimed a scalp.
Speaking from the perspective of the visitors, they are playing in this Indore Test without their regular skipper Pat Cummins; he had to fly back owing to family commitments. Former skipper and batting superstar Steve Smith is leading the team as a stand-in skipper in this match.
