Indian pacer Khaleel Ahmed, who has been out of touch this season, was hit for seven consecutive boundaries in T20 Internationals, in the second T20 match between India and Bangladesh at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot. Twitter soon exploded with netizens trolling the youngster for being out of form in the recent past. Bangladesh was put to bat by India after winning the toss and set up a target of 154 for the hosts to chase.
Netizens troll Khaleel Ahmed
Khaleel Ahmed conceded 7 boundaries off his 7 consecutive deliveries in the T20 international. In the first T20I, Mushfiqur Rahim charged Khaleel for 4 consecutive fours in the penultimate over of the game whereas in the second T20 Mohammad Naim hit the 21-year-old for 3 successive fours in the pacer's first over to continue the string of boundaries. It was the four consecutive fours in Ahmed's over in the first T20 that helped Mushfiqur Rahim take Bangladesh home. Here are some of netizen reactions:

An innings of missed opportunities
Bangladesh got off to a brilliant start with Liton das and Naim powering their side to 59 runs in just 7 overs. However, Bangladesh were lucky enough as Rishabh Pant's stumping of Liton Das was ruled Not Out by the TV umpire. Das was granted another lifeline in 7th over by skipper Rohit Sharma before succumbing to a run out in the next over itself. Washington Sundar fetched India the second wicket as Mohammad Naim, who looked well in form, was caught out on the third delivery of Sundar's last over.
Bangladesh's star in the first T20, Mushfiqur Rahim, unfortunately, could not shine in the second match as Yuzvendra Chahal picked his wicket in 13th over of the game. The same over also saw Rishabh Pant uproot the bails as he stumped Soumya Sarkar way out of the crease off Chahal's last delivery.
