Former Indian spinner Murali Kartik, who represented India between 2000 and 2007, might face the ire of media and fans for posting a controversial message on social media.
With the whole country celebrating Diwali, cricketers from around the country took to social media to wish their countrymen. And just like them, the former left-arm spinner too took to Twitter to wish everyone. However, the retired bowler might have just crossed the fine line between humor and hysteria. His intentions might have been good as he clearly wanted to convey the message that people should stop burning crackers, however, there is absolutely no doubt that his way of conveying the message was wrong. Kartik tweeted:

The bowler, who will be always remembered for his heroics against Australia in 2004-05 Mumbai Test, played eight Tests, 37 ODIs and one Twenty20 international for the national team before retiring in 2014. One of the most consistent performers in domestic circuit in the early 2000s, Kartik’s career coincided with the dominance of Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh in the Indian team, and as a result, he never got a consistent run in the team and played his last game for the team in 2007.
