India captain Virat Kohli's plea for a cracker-free Diwali did not go down to well with some of his Twitter followers. After Kohli tweeted a video asking his fans and followers to 'spread light, not noise', most replied stating they intended to do the exact opposite. While some accused Kohli of apparently defying the traditions of Indian culture, others 'informed' him that Indian Premier League too involved fireworks.

Just like Yuvraj Singh, Kohli too was trolled by the Twitterati.

Kohli celebrated Diwali at home with his family and even shared some photos.

The Supreme Court ruled earlier this month that there should be no sale of firecrackers during Diwali, as it restored a November 2016 order banning the sale and stocking of firecrackers in Delhi and National Capital Region (NCR). The directive, aimed to curbing dangerous pollution levels, found plenty of support from some of India's biggest celebrities.
