In the first match against New Zealand, Ravichandran Ashwin became the second fastest bowler to pick 200 wickets in Test cricket.
The English daily newspaper, ‘The Telegraph-UK’ published the news of Ashwin’s achievement in the historic 500th Test match of Indian Cricket.
However, the title doesn’t convey what they actually meant to say, as the title reads: “Ravi Chandran prepares to face England by becoming second-quickest bowler to reach 200 Test wickets.”
Cricket writer Anand Vasu was quick to spot the error in the title and took his Twitter handle and shared the mistake which happened with ‘The Telegraph’. He also tagged the Indian off-spinner in his tweet.
Anand tweeted : “Dear @ashwinravi99 it appears you have competition. The Telegraph, UK certainly thinks so.”

Ashwin also responded to the tweet in his unique style and tweeted : “@anandvasu My dad Mr.Ravichandran always told me he wasn’t encouraged to play when he was a kid, so good too see that he has stepped up.”

It’s not the first time Ashwin has taken a dig and responded to someone’s tweet on the micro-blogging website.
