Former India cricketer Aakash Chopra savagely shut down a troll who called him "Mr chamcha of Virat Kohli" on Twitter. The ex-India opener was called out by the user for tweeting in praise of Virat Kohli's catch but not doing the same when Manish Pandey took a stunning one-hander in the second ODI at Rajkot. In his reply, Aakash Chopra asked the troll to "get a life" and pointed out to him that he was doing commentary when Pandey took the catch and concluded by saying: "I don't tweet while commentating".

On Sunday, Virat Kohli produced an exceptional piece of effort in the field to dismiss the dangerous Marnus Labuschagne during the third and final ODI against Australia at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

The catch was all the more important as Labuschagne along with Steve Smith were threatening to cut loose and take the Australians to a big total. Kohli initially produced two fine saves to keep Labuschagne on strike and then followed it up with the exceptional catch to dismiss the Australian for 54.

Virat Kohli's effort ended the 127-run stand between Steve Smith and Labuschagne.

Aakash Chopra was quick to tweet about the catch and pointed to Kohli's two fine fielding stops before the catch but that didn't seem to sit well with one Twitter user.

The catch proved crucial to India's cause as the hosts managed to keep the Australians down to 286 for nine in 50 overs despite a brilliant 132-ball 131 from Steve Smith.

India cantered in the chase, largely thanks to fine batting performances from Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. Rohit smashed his 29th ODI century while Kohli scored 89 off 91 balls as India reached the target with seven wickets in hand and 15 balls to spare.
