Nowadays, social media has been used more for trolling than good work. It is heavier when it comes to sports. Just a single bad game is enough to get bulldozed by the trolls.
Indian speedster Mohammad Siraj recollected how he was brutally trolled in 2018. In the Sony Sports’ docuseries ‘Down Underdogs’, Siraj said, “I got trolled heavily on social media in 2018, some told I should stick to driving auto like my father instead of playing cricket that time I had made my mind that I am going nowhere and then to pick 5 wicket haul at Gabba was dream come true”.
Siraj came back strong and shut the trolls with his performance. The Hyderabadi pacer who was away from the third test due to a hamstring injury would be playing the ODI series against South Africa on January 19 at Boland Park in Paarl.
