Despite giving a tough fight to New Zealand in the semifinals at the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup, Virat Kohli-led team India lost the match by 18 runs on Wednesday. India had a horror start to their chase as they lost Rohit Sharma, Virat and KL Rahul in the first three overs for 1 each. Even though Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni steadied the innings well, it wasn't enough in the end as India fell short by 18 runs.
Devastated by the result, Indian cricket lovers let their emotions and feelings out by sharing memes on social media. Twitterati particularly seem to be hooked to Anushka Sharma's Sui Dhaaga memes. Some even channeled their frustration against Anushka after her husband and Indian skipper scored one run in the semifinal match.

WHO did this??? @AnushkaSharmaJuly 10, 2019
But for every tweet blaming Anushka, there were those who lashed out at others for blaming the Bollywood star for Virat's lack of performance.
And let's not blame @AnushkaSharma for the loss. She's not the only wife that goes for the match. So while we are not mistreating other women, we should do the same for Anushka ma'am. She has helped Virat sir to be a better person. So let's respect and appreciate her— Gurmanpreet (@gurmanpreet05) July 10, 2019
Please don't blame Anushka Sharma this time if we lose#INDvsNZ— Razil (@Razil1803) July 10, 2019
humble request, pls don't blame Anushka Sharma for India getting knocked out of the World Cup semis today.#INDvsNZ— i declare bankruptcy (@vrunketchup) July 10, 2019
Incidentally, this is not the first time Anushka is being targetted by the netizens for Virat's poor performance on the field. She was mercilessly trolled when Virat failed to perform during the India vs Australia World Cup semi-final match in 2015.
However, Virat had later lashed out at the online haters for attacking Anushka by writing a lengthy note on social media.
"Shame on people for trolling @AnushkaSharma non-stop. Have some compassion. She has always only given me positivity," he had said.
