India ended the day at 291/9 after the batting order barring Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara failed against brilliant bowling from the Kiwi spinners and Trent Boult. However, the day was marked by the surprise inclusion of Rohit Sharma and Umesh Yadav in the squad, and Twitter reacted to it.
That is SIR JADEJA for you!
Just 'Ravi' problems!
Ravi Shastri didn't comment watching Azhar and Ganguly. #indvsnz— Hitman Cricket (@HitmanCricket) September 22, 2016
Umesh Yadav's inclusion?
Not surprised since Kohli ko pace pasand hai.— Nikhil 🏏 (@CricCrazyNIKS) September 22, 2016
Why not pick Bhuvaneshwar instead of Rohit? Better at batting as well as bowling. #indvsnz— Gaurav Sabnis (@gauravsabnis) September 22, 2016
Indian crowd going wild at the sight of No.4 walking in, even though No.3's got out after a good knock. Some things won't change. #indvsnz— Saurabh Somani (@saurabh_42) September 22, 2016
What a Man!
Sachin:- 'Don't bowl him bad balls, he hits the good ones for fours.'— Hitman Cricket (@HitmanCricket) September 22, 2016
Rohit:- 'Don't bowl him good ball, he gets out on the bad ones.'
Good old days!
Someone ask Dhoni to padup and come in to bat! #INDvNZ— Hitman Cricket (@HitmanCricket) September 22, 2016
End of the road?
Ouch! That would hurt!
Like when Chappell said you'll make 10k test runs, you are better than Kohli. And you proved him wrong. Much fun. https://t.co/KR1zzqo3iX— cricBC (@cricBC) September 14, 2016
Too many 'Rohit'?
How much more Rohit Sharma could a Rohit Sharma dismissal get?— Nikhil 🏏 (@CricCrazyNIKS) September 22, 2016
It's not about Rohit Sharma getting out. It's about the way he gets out. #frustrating— Hitman Cricket (@HitmanCricket) September 22, 2016
Good for Indian cricket?
