“What a scam,” commented a Twitter user. Another person wrote, “I’m confused!!! Marketing or Sarcasm.”
Other brands also trolled team India for losing against England. Myntra, India’s biggest online fashion brand shared an image of what they called KL Rahul’s tshirt. “Out of this world,” read the T-shirt. This came in as KL Rahul scored 5 runs in 5 balls and got out in the second over. Many fans, however, did not like this mocking of an India player and came forward in his support.

Oh, c’mon Myntra, expected better from you. Do brands need to behave like trolls too? pic.twitter.com/RgdgL7l17i
