Indian skipper Virat Kohli's message on Diwali to celebrate the festivities without crackers to protect the environment came in the direct line of social media trolling. While the captain was widely panned by fans online for his "forced wokeness", his fellow Royal Challengers Bangalore teammate and Indian all-rounder Shivam Dube has now become Twitter's ammo to fire further shots at RCB leader Kohli.
Dressed in the traditional kurta, Dube on Saturday shared a few snapshots of him celebrating the festival with firecrackers.
"Wishing everyone a very happy Diwali & a prosperous new year ahead..." the cricketer wrote on his Twitter page.
