Former Australian opener Mark Waugh took to Twitter to express his disappointment towards batsmen in the Big Bash League and got trolled by former India opener Aakash Chopra.
The junior of the Waugh twins, Mark Waugh, tweeted about the poor standard of batting against spinners in the ongoing BBL and Aakash Chopra saw this as the perfect opportunity to make a reference to the Test series being played between India and Australia.
Mark Waugh tweeted, "Pretty embarrassing watching the standard of batting against spin in the BBL this season.#dreadful".
Aakash Chopra quoted the tweet and said that he hoped (for Australia's sake) that the cricketing world doesn't have the same sentiment once the fourth Test in Sydney is over.
Kuldeep Yadav is one of the two changes made by Virat Kohli in the Test match as he replaced injured fast bowler, Ishant Sharma. The other change saw KL Rahul return to the team in place of Rohit Sharma, who returned home to be with his wife as she gave birth to a baby girl.
The pitch in Sydney is expected to assist the spinners and thus Kuldeep might play a big role in the days to come. At the end of day 1, India sits comfortably at 303-4 courtesy a century by Cheteshwar Pujara.
Tom Moody made a cheeky comment on Mark Waugh's tweet and indicated that he understood why the batsmen were struggling against Rashid Khan.
I can understand the difficulties against one particular spinner, but the rest...I agree.— Tom Moody (@TomMoodyCricket) January 3, 2019
Rashid belongs to the Indian Premier League franchise, SunRisers Hyderabad and Moody is also a part of the SRH contingent.
