Former India cricketer, Rohan Gavaskar engaged in a battle of words after a cricket fan provoked him. Rohan Gavaskar, son of the legendary batsman, Sunil Gavaskar took to Twitter – just like almost every former cricketer – to express his disappointment from the batting performance of the Indian team on Saturday.

Gavaskar’s tweeted in context of the batting collapse by the Indian team in their second innings of the Adelaide Test. After taking a crucial lead of 53 runs in the first innings, Virat Kohli’s side was left embarrassed by the Australian pacers. India could manage only 36 runs as Australia fast bowlers – Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood particularly- ran riot and the visitors were dismissed in less than 22 overs.

In reply, led by Joe Burns’ fifty, the hosts chased the target of 90 runs in 21 overs. Hence, Rohan Gavaskar jokingly pointed out that the Test was combined with the long format and short format matches.

“Are we just witnessing the birth of a new format? First innings test match – second innings t-20. Best of both worlds. #indiavsaus #BorderGavaskarTrophy” Rohan Gavaskar tweeted.

Rohan Gavaskar gives a befitting reply to a troller

In the comments section, one fan by the username of ‘@rahulneogi99’ took a cheap dig at the junior Gavaskar. The fan asked Gavaskar about his achievements, and his eligibility to make comments on international Test cricket. He even termed Rohan as ‘a little kid’.

The fan tweeted, “Have u achieved anything in cricket buddy? Why u r commenting such with their level? First achieve something in life. U r just like a little kid still now.”

Rohan Gavaskar, who played 11 ODIs for India, wasn’t mincing any words. The 44-year-old lambasted the troller saying that the right-hander is not his buddy and has achieved a lot in his life. Gavaskar funnily trolled back the troller by advising him to stick to making fantasy teams and become self-dependent and not depend on his parents.

“A) I’m not your buddy B) yes I have . C) stick to making your fantasy teams . D) move out of your parents house,” Rohan Gavaskar replied back.

India will look to make a strong comeback in the Test series when both sides meet for the Boxing Day Test on 26th December in Melbourne. After a shambolic batting performance in Adelaide, the team is already jolted by the departure of the skipper, Virat Kohli, who will return home to attend the birth of his child. Ajinkya Rahane will lead the side in Kohli’s absence.
