Former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif has once again found himself at the receiving ends of social media ire and this time it's because of celebrating Christmas. The decorated cricketer uploaded a picture with his family celebrating Christmas and a few minutes later, the haters unleashed their opinions. 

Kaif uploaded a picture on social media with the caption,"Merry Christmas! May there be peace and love".  However, he started receiving hate comments soon after posting the image. 

Despite the trollers doing their best to spoil the festive spirits, many people came to his defence and have asked the decorated cricketer to ignore the haters.

This is not the first time that Kaif has found himself on the target of hatemongers on social media. On a previous occasion, Kaif has faced backlash for posting a picture which shows the 36-year-old playing chess with his son. (Read Chess article here)

Earlier, Kaif was trolled for posting photos of Surya Namaskar on Twitter. (Read Yoga troll here)

Kaif was considered as one of the most athletic fielders that Team India had ever seen. He won the ICC U-19 World Cup in 2000 and featured in only 13 Tests and 125 ODIs, but his knock in the 2002 Natwest Series final against England has always etched in the memories of the Indian cricket fans. The same incident where former captain Sourav Ganguly took of his shirt in glee when they won the match back in 2002.

Meanwhile, cricketers like Irfan Pathan and Mohammed Shami have also been ridiculed on social media for various idiotic reasons. Just a few days ago, Pathan was criticised for posting an image with his wife.

Likewise, Shami too received abusive and hateful comments for a certain dress which was worn by his wife in the photograph.
