The Indian openers continued the disappointing performance as Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan were dismissed in single digits.

Rohit (4) was the first to fall and Dhawan (9) followed him after five overs. Their partnership lasted only 4.3 overs.

Rohit scored 79 in the last match at Hamilton. However, that didn’t stop the Indian fans on social media from mocking him and Dhawan.

Here are the few comments.

Sanjay Sharma (‏@sANJAY_sDs) – now a days Rohit sharma nd shikhar dhawan looks like a hutch ad……. whenever sharma goes dhawan follows both of RIP->rest in pavilion.

Divy Pandey (‏@Backchod_baba) – even sanskari Alok nath would be doing Maa Behan of Rohit Sharma today #rohitsharma

Sir Rohit Sharma (‏@imsujitagrawal) – We will see Talented Rohit Sharma very soon in the upcoming Movie “Gone in 60 Seconds..” #NZvsInd

Aashish Jonathan (‏@aashishjonathan) – Indian Bikes have better average that ROHIT SHARMA !

Abhishek Mudgal (‏@Yuvlicious) – Rohit Sharma & Dhawan are like that YouTube video which buffers slowly at the start and then gets corrupted after few minutes.. :/

Vicky (‏@MrTippler) – Armaan Kohli: “Aukaat kya hai teri?” Rohit Sharma: “India.” A: “What??” R: “Yes, because playing outside India means….Aukaat se bahar.”

Greatbong (@greatbong) – Whats common to Rohit Sharma and a teenage boy watching porn for first time? Both fall early.

Apart from that, many fans wanted to see Gautam Gambhir return to the side and Cheteshwar Pujara included in place of the current openers.
