Ravichandran Ashwin, who didn’t feature in the Gabba Test match because of injury, was quick to troll the former cricketers and cricket experts, who had nullified India’s chances to win the series against Australia after the embarrassing defeat in the first Test in Adelaide Oval. Team India, led by Ajinkya Rahane, turned not only all the predictions but also proved that this team should never be underestimated.
Taking to Twitter, Ravichandran Ashwin took a hilarious dig at India’s fortune-teller by using a Math formula, which every child in school had learned about. He wrote LHS (Left Hand Side) is not equal to RHS (Right Hand Side) while putting the picture of opinions predicting India’s clean sweep on the left while India lifting the trophy on the right.
In the end, he also thanked the supporters, who had also shown their belief in the team throughout the four-match Test series.
Notably, there were three former Australian skippers, Michale Clarke, Ricky Ponting and Mark Waugh and also former England captain Michael Vaughan, who had already written down that India will lose the series after the opening Test match defeat.
Here is Ravichandran Ashwin’s Tweet:
LHS ( not = ) RHS !

Team India creates history:
Talking about the thrilling series, India had played their last Test match in Gabba without their seven regular Test players. Virat Kohli was on paternity leave, Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav were injured during the first Two tests while Ishant Sharma hadn’t travelled to Australia because he was still regaining full fitness. Jasprit Bumrah featured in the first three Tests but was out of the last Test because of a groin injury while Ravichandran Ashwin had a back injury.
Without the crucial players, India with an inexperienced bowling attack, comprising of Mohammed Siraj, Shardul Thakur, Navdeep Saini and Washington Sundar, bundled out Australia in both the innings at their fortress. In the batting lineup, Shubman Gill and Rishabh Pant with the support of the veterans Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara chased down 328 runs in the second innings on day four to create history and end Australia’s unbeaten 32-year-old record at Gabba.
