The skipper of the Indian cricket team came out in support of Mohammad Shami after the latter was blamed for the loss of India. He termed the trollers as ‘bunch of spineless people’.

“There’s a good reason why we are playing on the field and not some bunch of spineless people on social media that have no courage to actually speak to any individual in person. Behind our entities, go after our people through social media and making fun of people. That has become a source of entertainment in today’s world which is so unfortunate and so sad because this is literally the lowest level of human potential that one can operate at. That’s how I look at these people.”
