Kohli is in form now!”

“SKY is looking good. Also our openers Let’s not be fickle and fair weather. We should support our team even when they lose a close one. And for God’s sake, stop trolling Arshdeep. He’s a great prospect. Expecting fireworks in the rest of the tournament. Praying for the next clash,” he further added to the post.

Earlier, it was Swara Bhasker, Gul Panag and Pooja Bhatt and dialogue writer-lyricist Varun Grover who came out in support of Arshdeep amid criticism after the match. Swara Bhasker said on Twitter, “We love you and we are proud of you @arshdeepsinghh! Stand strong! (yellow heart and national flag emojis).” Gul Panag also tweeted, “Truly tragic the way @arshdeepsinghh has been trolled. And it appears to be the handiwork of another IT cell. Don’t fall for it. P.S. The misfortune of devious propaganda is, others can do it too. And it works like a dog whistle, with the intended recipients unaware.”
