It was an awful day for Team India as they were handed a T20 series defeat by South Africa with a game to spare on Monday at the Barabarti Stadium in Cuttack. It became a lot more worse when the crowd made it a point to put a black mark on Indian Cricket, by throwing bottles after India were bundled for a meagre 92 runs in the second T20 game on Monday.
Twitter reacted to this shambolic incident in Cuttack on Monday. The name Barabati can somewhat be related to the word 'barbaric' and why won't someone draw such relations! The barbaric behaviour of the crowd made the players leave the field not once but twice, and that too for a considerable period of time.
India might have crumpled for a total of 92 runs -- which is also their second lowest total in T20s -- but that does not mean they deserve such kind of unruly behaviour. Will these same bunch of chaotic people throw their valuables at the players when they win a game?
The players had to wait for around half-an-hour for the crowd to settle down. Once they did, umpires resumed the game, but not for long. Only a couple of overs were bowled and immediately both the sides decided to leave the pitch and walk into the dressing rooms.
The policemen later asked certain sections of the crowd to leave the ground. Only couple of stands next to the pavilion were filled at the end of the match.
Let us have a look at how Twitter reacted to this shameful incident during the second T20 in Cuttack on Monday:

Disgraceful scenes in Cuttack. Nobody has a right to throw bottles onto the ground. Crowd performance worse than that of the players. — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) October 5, 2015
Some of us had a tough day today too. It happens. Not everything in life always goes your way. Easy to be smug or abusive or pelt bottles!

Just Cuttack not to host matches for a few years.... Not the whole of India... #INDvSA

The crowds may be upset with the way India played this evening but the way they are behaving is very disappointing. #IndvsSA
