The ugly cricket fan

Fans burning posters of the Indian cricket team. A vicious
Twitter
attack on actor
Anushka Sharma
. Hysterical television anchors. Now all we need is a few stones thrown at the players when they return. Then the Indian cricket fan will have shown his ugly side in full. Once the anger is spent, he will be back to cheering his favourite cricketers all over again.

Virat Kohli

M.S. Dhoni
