Shikhar Dhawan's place in the Test team is uncertain after a poor outing against Essex.

With the only warm-up game before the five-match Test series, ending in a draw, India were left with a few questions regarding their top order batting. The visitors would have been heading to Birmingham, the venue of the first Test, in a much better space if two of its key batsmen Shikhar Dhawan and Cheteshwar Pujara had gotten some runs under their belt.

However, it was not to be as Dhawan departed without scoring for the second time in the match thus bagging a pair while lasting just four balls across two innings. But this didn't stop Dhawan from posting a picture with Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara on his sides in the slip cordon. He captioned the image: "Kaise na ho guajara.. jab saath ho Kohli aur Pujara!"

The tweet wasn't very well received by a number of fans as they saw it as an opportunity to troll the out-of-form batsman.

The first Test of the series is due to start tomorrow in Birmingham and it will be interesting to see how the left-hander responds to his trolls with the bat.
