If you guys have been following the India-Sri Lanka series, you must have come across the fact that commentators from both sides love taking a dig at each other. Of all experts, Russel Arnold continues to remain a fans’ favourite. Don’t believe? Check yourself for his amazing reasons defending his national side, and keen observations.

Smogy Delhi

It all started from a fan urging Arnold to voice his opinion on the poor quality of air affecting the recently-concluded Delhi Test.

Arnold strikes. Or only he thinks he did…


Arnold wasn’t done yet

To remind the readers, Arnold’s ‘prediction’ isn’t possible. Leave aside India, no team can inflict a 5-0 whitewash in a 3-match series. Arnold’s prediction proved so bizarre that he even prompted VVS Laxman to join others in trolling him.

Laxman isn’t known to pass sarcastic comments on his panel members. He has his own way of dealing with opinions and altercations sticking to his own judgement. However, Arnold’s out-of-the-box tweets sometimes provoke him to break the norm.

Not the first time

Supporting his team ‘irrespective of the context’, Arnold had appeared relaxed and chilled out in this picture clicked at Feroz Shah Kotla, New Delhi. Arnold probably needs to maintain an air of calm and understand the crux of matters before commenting.
