Indian cricket team is currently stationed in South Africa for the ongoing triple format series against the host team. During the first day of the opening test on Friday at Cape Town's Newlands, the South African players were bowled for 286 whereas the men in blue staggered at the batting front.

The day closed with India scoring 28 for three, with Virat Kohli leaving the field with just 5 runs on board. Openers Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan were also dismissed early at 1 and 16 runs respectively but the Indian skipper's early return to pavilion didn't sit well with his ardent fans.

Kohli has showcased a watch-worthy performance in the recent past before going on a short break to tie the knot with his long-time girlfriend Anushka Sharma. His ICC ranking proves that the Indian run-machine has much more potential than he is letting on to the South Africans.

Notably, Virat was finding it hard to bat on the Greenish field which was evident from his very first delivery. Despite the lanky ball, Kohli edged it straight to wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock and returned to stands with only 5 runs in hand. His fans were boiling with anger over his early return and took it out on Twitter.
