Ravichandran Ashwin, who turns 31 today, is known for his on-field skills, and also popular for his social engagements. He is often seen tweeting on various social and non-social issues apart from handling his trolls efficiently. Nonetheless, to his dismay, Ashwin has become the butt of all trolls when he posted a tweet with wrong brand promotion.

Ashwin promoted a Chinese mobile phone brand via a tweet that was supposedly sent out by a big American phone brand (iPhone). As soon as a follower spotted his blunder, Twitterati went haywire on the Indian off-spinner and unraveled his doorsa. Ashwin later deleted the tweet.


Ashwin is currently playing for Worcestershire in the Division two of the English county championship. He has two more matches remaining before returning to India. He has already made an impact for Worcestershire in his first-ever outing.

Ashwin took 8 wickets in the match, including a five-for in the second innings during a massive 189-run win over Gloucestershire.

Interestingly, a similar incident happened with Indian Tennis star Sania Mirza, few months ago. She was also trolled for a mobile brand promotional tweet that went wrong when she tweeted from another phone brand.
