The first match of the two-match Test series between India and New Zealand (IND vs NZ) has started in Kanpur. Team India captain Ajinkya Rahane won the toss and decided to bat first. Shreyas Iyer, making his debut for India in the longest format of cricket, impressed everyone in his first Test innings. Mumbai’s right-handed batsman, who came out to bat at number-5 after the dismissal of captain Rahane, scored the first half-century of his Test career. Iyer is still standing at the crease.

It has been decided to rest Team India’s regular Test captain Virat Kohli in the first Test, but without stepping on the field in this match, he started getting trolled on social media. Virat Kohli will return to the team as captain in the second Test in Mumbai.

Why did Virat Kohli get trolled without even stepping on the field?

Actually, the matter is such that in the absence of Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, captaining Team India, managed to win the toss in the first Test. Earlier in the T20I series too, Indian captain Rohit Sharma had won the toss in all three matches, but Virat Kohli has been very unlucky in this matter. In the recently held T20 World Cup 2021 also, he lost the toss in some important matches in the beginning and the team had to bear the brunt.

Fans on social media are trolling Virat Kohli after Ajinkya Rahane won the toss. Many users are saying that now Rahane is also overtaking Kohli in the matter of toss.

Talking about the match, Ajinkya Rahane, who was captaining the team in the absence of Virat Kohli, could not show anything amazing with the batting and got clean bowled by Kiwi bowler Jamieson after scoring 35 runs. At the same time, Cheteshwar Pujara also lost his wicket after being set up as usual. In this match, Pujara, who was the vice-captain of Team India, scored 26 runs off 88 balls.
