Amitabh Vs Flintoff... the twitter war !!
Sunday night might have witnessed a great win of Indian T20 match over the Aussies. The brave knock of 82 not out by Virat Kohli might have made the victory a possibility. While everyone’s busy praising Virat for his unique performance, England’s ex caption Andrew Flintoff seems to have chosen a different step. He compared Virat Kohli to an upcoming England batsman Joe Root. He said that if Virat continues to play in this manner, he would certainly reach the level of Joe Root.
That’s certainly an embarrassing statement for a cricketer like Virat. Amitabh was quick to reply on behalf of Virat. `Root who? We would pluck out any ROOT that comes in our way’ was the tweet by Amitabh. Flintoff was not the man who likes an answer like that. He has questioned `Amitabh who?’ in his reply and that’s it. Fans of both Amitabh and Indian cricked has slammed Flintoff reminding him about the fan following of Amitabh. Tweets poured across comparing the 20 million twitter followers of Amitabh with mere 1.8 million for Flintoff. Finally Flintoff had to read the statistics and sign off for the day. But in a sad mood!
