Cricketer Ashwin is getting trolled on twitter and here is the reason!
Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) ban is over and they are all set to make a comeback next year in the quickfire format. Mahendra Singh Dhoni,who was the captain in 2015, took to Instagram to celebrate CSK’s return and uploaded a picture of him donning a yellow jersey with the number ‘7’ and word ‘Thala’ printed on it.
Team member Ravichandran Ashwin too made a statement on the team’s comeback which was not taken positively by the social media.
When India’s premier off-spinner was asked by a newspaper to comment on Chennai’s return to IPL fold, he said, “I think the two-year hiatus for CSK probably increases its value much like what it did for Manchester United when the air crash happened (in 1958, when 23 people, including eight of Manchester United’s players died).”
His answer triggered a social media backlash.

Don't think R Ashwin has a clue about the level of hate headed his way. Comparing #MUFC's Munich disaster to CSK's ban for fraud was stupid.

After his slip of tongue while comparing CSK's two-year absence to Man U's Munich air crash, Ashwin also slips in ICC's ranking. He is 3rd
