Yadav liking the controversial tweet didn't go down well with fans on Twitter as they slammed the right-hander. Several reactions poured in as fans even claimed that the 30-year old won't get an opportunity to play for Team India anytime soon. Some fans also dragged Rohit Sharma's name into the matter.
