Pandya shared a post with a new hairdo and a victory sign.

He stated that he is absolutely gutted as India lost the 5-match Test series against England by a 1-4 margin.

Pandya then added that he is looking forward to the Asia Cup 2018, starting tomorrow in UAE.

He did share the post in good taste, but it backfired.

FansThis is what fans suggested Pandya should do

The look Pandya donned in the photo led to fans suggesting him to take new career options.

Some went on to say that he should be dropped by the selectors.

The reason behind fans getting irked by Pandya's post is because of his performances in England.

His scores in England read 2, 31, 11, 26, 18, 52*, 4 and 0 in four Tests.

This was not all. Pandya added another photo on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi and fans didn't spare him, this time, as well.

Many felt his antics are focused more on social media rather than on the cricket field.

Pandya has often been criticized for his hairstyles and this time was no different.

Editor's take: Trolling on social media is not cool

In the world of new media, fans spare no one. They seem to have an opinion on everything. Trolling has become a habit for most and celebrities aren't spared. As fans, we should try to understand that players don't underperform intentionally.
