The tour of New Zealand went from sweet to sour for the Indian cricket team. From a 5-0 whitewash in the T20 series, Virat Kohli and the squad lost the ODI 3-0 to the hosts, and now a poor performance in the first Test has them trailing behind 1-0. In the meantime, Indian opening batsman Mayank Agarwal took it to Twitter to show some good times he was having with his teammates. In front of a disappointed and agitated fan base, the photo wasn’t received well.

The squad was scheduled to leave Wellington in the wake of the first Test, to fly to Christchurch to face the Kiwis in the final match of the series at Hagley Oval. Today earny morning, Mayank Agarwal tweeted a group photo of himself with Ishant Sharma, Rishabh Pant and the skipper Virat Kohli, walking on the jet bridge. The picture was captioned with: “Straight outta Wellington🤘🤘 #traveldiaries #TeamIndia #onthego #entourage”


Ishant Sharma also tweeted the same photo later.

However, the fans were not happy to see the Men in Blue superstars in a touring mood, and were all over the two cricketers’ Twitter handles with their vexed reactions. While a few received the picture with nice reactions, the better half of the two players’ followers poured their frustrations over in the replies.

Despite the overall poor performance, it was only Agarwal and Sharma who shined above the rest. The opener scored a total of 75 runs across both innings, along with putting up a sweet half century in the second innings.

On the other hand, Sharma has made a stunning comeback to the pitch. The veteran picked up five Kiwi batsmen in both innings, and secured his 11th five wicket haul of the red ball format.

With just one match remaining to conclude the New Zealand tour, Team India will make an effort to end the final Test match with a victory, as they take on the Black Caps this Saturday.
