Following the various tweets by Sreesanth, Tharoor was demeaned by his behavior and ended the banter saying, “Bowled over by his humble demeanour. Caught by@sreesanth36 without a slip! But his pol. innings will be a follow-on.” The two were recently found embracing each other in public when they bumped into each other during their respective campaign trails.

Sreesanth was also blamed for calling Kerela a city on his twitter account and was trolled on Twitter by voters. It fell to an extent where he was taught geography lessons by certain voters and he blocked certain of them.
