Rohit Sharma Asks Fans To Support The Team In Tough Times And Gets Backed By Amitabh Bachchan

In the second day of the second test, the Indian team crumbled to 107 all out against a top quality England seam attack.

The lack of practice in top order was there for everyone to see as veteran Jimmy Anderson (5/20) made them hop, skip and jump on a track with his 26th five-wicket haul in longest form. He was ably complemented by Chris Woakes (2/19), Sam Curran (1/26) and Stuart Broad (1/37)

Following the bad outing on Day 2, some Indian fans were left unhappy on few under-performing players.

Rohit Sharma, however, hit back, asking for support from the fans "when the going gets tough". Have a look at some tweets.

Rohit reminded the fans that these were the same players that got India the No.1 Test ranking.

Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan backed Rohit.

Some of the other Twitter users who claimed that the Indian team reached the top in Tests by doing well only in home conditions.

India has played a total of just 5 Tests outside of Asia in the past two years, which is not including ongoing India vs England second Test at Lord's.

The Indian team has won just one match out of the five with the sole victory coming in the 3rd Test and final Test against South Africa at Johannesburg. India had lost the first two Tests of the 3-match Test series.

In that span, India also played a Test against the West Indies (4th Test of the series) that ended in a draw at Port of Spain.

During the five-year period, India has lost two Tests in four outings in Australia, lost four times in six Tests in England, lost once in two Tests in New Zealand and lost thrice in five Tests in South Africa.

Overall, India has played a total of 25 Tests in the past two years (discounting ongoing Lord's Test), winning an impressive 16 Tests, 5 drawn and losing just four. Thus, India has played a total of 20 Tests in Asia out of the 25 overall in the last two years, winning 15 of them.
