Team India has performed exceedingly well in the latest One Day International series against Sri Lanka. Thanks to the brilliant performance of players, the team has already secured the 5 match series by winning all 4 matches so far.
Since the 4th match was not that crucial, Team India gave a chance to the new fast bowler Shardul Thakur. The young player managed to impress in his ODI debut by striking an important first wicket of Sri Lanka.
BCCI welcomed Shardul in the core team by giving him the ODI cap. They shared the update on Twitter-

Proud moment for young @imShard as he receives his ODI cap from @RaviShastriOfc #SLvIND

Though he was warmly welcomed by BCCI and his performance was also appreciated, still he got trolled by people on Twitter.
Reason? Well, it was because he wore the iconic jersey no. 10 which was earlier donned by Sachin Tendulkar. When the fans of Sachin spotted him wearing the jersey no.10 they didn’t like it and posted their feelings on Twitter. Have a look-

@imShard Jersey no. 10 always belonged to Sachin Tendulkar. Take it off. Find another jersey. Wtf BCCI?!

Hey @BCCI I thought Jersey No.10 retired with Sir Sachin Tendulkar. How come Mr. Shardul Thakur is wearing this number? NOT COOL AT ALL.

Do you think Shardul deserved this kind of trolling for wearing jersey no. 10 especially after giving a good performance in his first match?
