Mahela Jayawardene BPL 2017

Sri Lankan cricketer Mahela Jayawardene is a calm character and the neat guy on and off the cricket field but the elegant right hander has proved his humor on the eve of international women’s day.

The Mumbai Indians coach was wished by a fan on women’s day as the fan looked to have little idea that his tweet would be trending at the end of the day.

The fan tweeted: “Happy women’s day to the best srilankan cricketer 😇  #womensday”

The 39-year old who has been very active on his twitter handle in recent months have gone through the messages and found the above tweet made by the fan.

Instead of ignoring the tweet, he made a banter on the tweet as he asked the fan to know the difference between Mahela and Mahila. (In case you didn’t know Mahila means Woman in Hindi and few other Indian languages)

Mahela has replied by tweeting: “You should know the difference of Mahela and Mahila? 😳”

Surely, Indian Premier League is having its impact on foreign players as they are learning Hindi well while interacting with Indian players in the cash rich league. Previously, New Zealand cricketer Ross Taylor also became an overnight sensation after giving Hindi gaalis on field in the series against India.


    I am a sports enthusiast. Primarily a football fan these days post the golden era of Indian cricket.
