Andrew Flintoff is among those individuals who literally can do anything to gain a few eyeballs and stay in the limelight. In his playing days as well, Flintoff was involved in some acts, which sensible individuals wouldn’t even consider doing. Who can forget his act of jumping into the ocean from a cruise during England’s campaign in the 2007 ICC World Cup in the Caribbean?
The former England all-rounder was at it again last night after India beat Australia in a thrilling run chase, owing to the sheer brilliance of Virat Kohli. Flintoff, in order to grab some unneeded publicity, taunted that one day, Kohli would be as good as Joe Root. That definitely did not go down well with cricket viewers having a sane mind, and soon Flintoff was slammed on Twitter.
Among those who slammed Flintoff, was prominent Indian actor Amitabh Bachchan, who openly questioned: “Root who”? To Bachchan’s tweet, Flintoff just tried to act smart by questioning in return who actually was Bachchan? Flintoff though was not aware that he was about to be brutally trolled by a parody account of Ravindra Jadeja.
Sir Jadeja, as the twitter handle suggests, quoted a famous dialogue from an Amitabh Bachchan movie, and compared the followers of the two openly in an image. Bachchan has approximately 20 million followers, while Flintoff does not have even two million followers. The troll from Sir Jadeja, was enough to shut Flintoff for a really long time. The former English all rounder will probably think ten times before poking a fun at an Indian the next time.
