Known for his straight-forward comments and opinions, former Australian-turned commentator, Dean Jones faced the wrath of Indian fans on Twitter after first One-Day International (ODI) at Chennai. In a match marred by rain, India beat Australia by 26-runs (DLS method) in the first of the 5 ODI series on Sunday.

Jones in his witty manner tweeted about how rain helped India win the tie after Australia s target was reduced to 164 in 21 overs. India set a daunting target of 282 to win courtesy Hardik Pandya s 73 and MS Dhoni s 89.

Fans on Twitter went on a trolling mode after reading Jones views. Jones, tweeted, So I see India needed a bit of rain to win that game. Ok bring on Game 2 @StarSportsIndia

#Wearecoming #INDvAUS .

He did ask fans not to get personal in their comments or else they will be blocked.

India take Australia in the second ODI on Thursday at the iconic Eden Gardens. Jones is currently in the country for his commentating assignment in Karnataka Premier League (KPL) 2017.
