Wicketkeeper-batsman Naman Ojha committed a faux pas on Friday as he posted a tweet wishing former India captain Sourav Ganguly happy birthday from his official account. Ganguly celebrates his birthday on July 8 and Ojha has been two months late in sending across his wishes.

Naturally, users of the social media website spotted the error quickly and each began pulling Ojha’s leg for the mistake.
