Indian captain Virat Kohli on Saturday hit out at the nasty trollers after social media abuse was directed towards pacer Mohammed Shami over his religion in the aftermath of India’s massive loss against Pakistan. Kohli said attacking a person on the basis of his religion is pathetic and, those spineless people do not appreciate the fact that Shami has been a proven match-winner for India before dishing out vitriol on online platforms. He added that the Indian team stands in support of their teammate and the brotherhood between the boys can’t be shaken.
