Ravichandran Ashwin’s first tweet after winning the test series rocking the internet as the cricketer gave an epic reply to former foreign cricket players who believed India couldn’t bounce back in the test series against Australia. The cricketer, by adding the pictures of cricketer’s making their opinions against India and India celebrating the victory, said that left hand side is not equal to right hand side.
India won the series against Australia by chasing 328 runs in the second innings. With the help of Pant, Pujara, Gill’s heroic batting knocks, team India managed to chase the mammoth total with three overs left in the day. The historical victory made fans extremely happy who are lauding Ajinkya Rahane for captaining the team effectively. “Every session we discovered a new hero” said Sachin Tendlukar lauding the team’s memorable victory.
Ravichandran who couldn’t play the fourth test due to injury, saved team India from losing the match in the third test. He who stood in the crease for 4 long hours without getting out, impressed the entire country. His bowling abilities also paved way for team India’s victory in the second test.
Now, by adding the picture of former Australian cricketers making comments against India, Ravi Ashwin sent a message to his followers and the fans of Indian cricket team. In the picture we could see the statements of cricketers such as Ricky Ponting, Vaughan, Haddin, Clarke and Waugh.
“There could be a good chance (of a whitewash)… With Kohili not being
there.. there’s almost no one to pick them up after a loss like that” said Ricky Ponting after India got defeated in a most humiliating way in the first test. “Can you imagine this Indian batting line-up chance without Virat Kohli for the next two Test matches? They are in deep trouble” said Michake Clarke former Australian captain.
“just can’t see how they (India) can bounce back after Australia white
washed them on the third day (in Adelaide)… four-nil to Australia” -Mark Waugh said whereas Brad Haddin said “I thought their (India’s)
only opportunity to win a Test match was at Adelaide… I don’t think they ll be able to turn it around”
“Told ya. India are going to get hammered in the Test Series” former English batsman Vaughan said.
Now, reply to these comments, Ravichandran Ashwin said “LHS ( not = ) RHS ! Yours happily India tour of OZ 2020/21 Humbled by all the love and support we have received over the last 4 weeks!” by adding a picture of India celebrating.

The cricketer also replied to Tim Paine who passed nasty comments while he was batting in the third test. He said “Can’t wait to get you to the Gabba” referring to the Brisbane test. Replying to him, Ashwin replied “Can’t wait to get you to India, that will be your last game”. Further he continued to sledge the Tamil nadu cricketer for a long time which frustrated him.
