After Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma left Indian cricketer Virat Kohli heartbroken following their split, social media trolls have taken it upon themselves to pin any of Kohli's failures on his ex-girlfriend.
Having had enough, the star Indian batsman came to Anushka's defence after Twitter trolls got the best of him by tweeting about his former girlfriend yet again, throughout the India vs Australia World T20 match.

The cricketer posted a message on Instagram as well shaming anyone who offended Anushka, reminding them to "think of how your sister or girlfriend or wife would feel if someone trolled them and very conveniently rubbished them in public."
Indian cricket fans have made it a habit to drag Anushka into social media discussion every time Kohli plays. The Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi star was trending on Twitter after Kohli led India to victory in the WT20 match against Pakistan earlier this month.
Since the two have parted ways, it may be time to put the Anushka trolling to rest once and for all.
