As Team India marches on to take on Sri Lanka in the limited-overs format and later face England in the five-Test series, the desi fans seem to be stuck on the loss of the World Test Championship final where India were handsomely defeated by Kane Williasom’s New Zealand by 8 wickets. Among the cricketers who have faced the wrath of irked fans is Indian spearhead Jasprit Bumrah whose subpar performance in the one-off Test match left many disappointed. Despite WTC being a thing of the past now, Bumrah is very much facing brickbats on social media. Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, Bumrah shared a happy moment with the sports presenter and his wife Sanjana Ganesan.
“Smiling at you," Bumrah captioned the picture.
While the couple was all smiles, some cricket “fans" weren’t.

Meanwhile, in a conversation with his wife and anchor Sanjana Ganesan, Bumrah recalled his childhood memories and days when he was playing in U-17. The first photo shown to the pacer was where Bumrah was seen holding the Border Gavaskar Trophy after India’s registered victory over Australia at The Gabba earlier this year.
