Few days ago in IPL when Virat Kohli had given Suryakumar Yadav a stare during RCB vs MI match, it had created quite a furore among the fans. The reactions suggested that it didn’t go down well with a lot of Mumbai Indians fans on social media although both the professionals involved in this episode had handled it quite maturely.
Not even a week has passed on since the IPL got over and Suryakumar Yadav, either intentionally or unintentionally revived that controversy in a different way. He liked a tweet against Virat Kohli from his official Twitter account. However, once he realized his mistake, he unlike that tweet.
Here is what Suryakumar Yadav had liked :
The tweet was tweeted by an account claiming to be a fan of Rohit Sharma. It was meant to appreciate the captaincy of Rohit Sharma but the problematic part of this tweet lied in addressing Virat Kohli as ” paper captain ” which meant a captain made only for completing formalities. Here was the original tweet :

Suryakumar Yadav was heavily criticized by users for liking this troll tweet against his national side captain. Realising his mistake, he later unliked that tweet. However, only he can tell whether he had liked it by mistake or purposefully.
Few days ago too, Suryakumar Yadav vs Virat Kohli had become a big thing on social media although it wasn’t such a thing at the first place. This intentional or unintentional liking of a tweet reignited the old episode.
This is not the first time someone liked a tweet or post against his national team captain or a teammate. Rohit Sharma too had landed himself into trouble for liking an instagram post against KL Rahul and liking a tweet against Anushka Sharma. The whole issue gave a lot of spice to cricket fans who are waiting for India’s tour of Australia to begin.
