Virat Kohli's captaincy is under the scanner after successive losses against England.

India are trailing England 0-2 in the ongoing five-Test series after a heavy innings defeat at Lord's. While the team has come under severe criticism by the media and cricket experts alike, it hasn't stopped the Indian cricketers from celebrating the nation's 72nd Independence Day.

Captain Virat Kohli today took to Twitter to wish everyone on the occasion. He wrote: "Today, let's celebrate the things that unite us all instead of dwelling on our differences. Howzzat for a change? #HappyIndependenceDay  #StayWrogn @StayWrogn"

Earlier this week Kohli had also issued an emotional message for fans after the team's debacle at Lord's. Following the loss, captain Kohli and head coach Ravi Shastri have been facing a lot of flak from all quarters. The under-fire skipper urged the fans to keep supporting the team during its tough time. Kohli posted a photo of the team huddle to show unity and shared a positive message with fans, “Sometimes we win and other times we learn. You never give up on us and we promise to never give up on you either. Onwards and upwards," he posted on Facebook.
