Hashim Amla trolled on Twitter after his weird dismissal to Ravindra Jadeja

“What on earth was Hash thinking?” It’s a question that surely popped in the minds of every South African fan watching the South African chase in the Mohali Test. South African captain Hashim Amla, who is considered as one of the best batsmen, in current world cricket, came out to bat at a score of 9 for 2, as his side had to chase down 218 to go one-up. Pick of the tweets: India vs South Africa, 1st Test at Mohali

Ravindra Jadeja ran in to bowl the fifth ball of his third over and all Amla did was left a straight length ball that crashed onto his middle stump. Why on earth would you leave a straight ball onto the stumps? The pitch has been criticised for being a dustbowl but here the wicket played no role in the dismissal.

Amla’s wicket was a big blow and many surprised fans took to Twitter to express themselves. Amla soon went on to trend and the world’s no.4 batsman who captains the no.1 Test side became a butt of jokes on the social platform. We present you with some of the tweets.
