India set foot in the tour opening first Twenty20 International against Australia at The Gabba on Wednesday but ended up losing the rain-hit match by four runs in spite of scoring more runs.

After winning the toss, India captain Virat Kohli asked the Aussies to bat first. The hosts posted 158/4 after the match was diminished to a 17-overs-a-side match.

In response, India scored 169 for seven in 17 overs but still lose the match thanks to the D/L method.

Shortly after the match, Indian fans took to social media sites to vent out their anger and blame the culprits. As it turned out, the rain and D/L rule were not the only ones who faced the wrath of Indian fans.

Krunal Pandya, who leaked 55 runs without success from his spell of four overs, was the first target for aggravated fans, who also questioned the Indian team management's wisdom in selecting the Mumbai all-rounder.

It is another matter though that the Mumbai Indians player was hailed for his stupendous debut earlier this month against the West Indies.

Here are some of the reactions:

For the record, Krunal joined an unwanted list of Indian bowlers who have conceded over 50 runs in the shortest format of the game.

Yuzvendra Chahal, who has failed to notice for the match, topped the list. He delivered 64 runs without success against South Africa at the Centurion in early this year in February.

Joginder Sharma, who splendidly bowled the last over in India's World T20 triumph against Pakistan in 2007, is second with figures of 0/57.

Pandya's figures of 0/55 are third, beating Yusuf Pathan's 1/54 to the third place. Mohammed Siraj's 1/53 completes the top five.
