Twitter is throwing masterpieces at such a consistent rate that it is now expected that at least one tweet would go viral when a popular event takes place. After the first day was washed out, play began on Day 2 of the World Test Championship Final. The viral reply to a tweet was made on account of New Zealand’s decision of fielding an XI without a spinner.
Kiwis do not name a spinner in the XI
When Team India announced their XI, many were surprised that there were two spinners in the squad. While many felt that this could be related to the pitch, New Zealand’s playing XI triggered contrasting debates. The Kiwis did not name a single spinner for the summit clash.
Shane Warne left disappointed by this decision
Legendary spinner Warne was disappointed by New Zealand’s decision not to play a spinner. The Aussie felt that the footmarks could aid the spinners as the game goes on. This was a logical reason given by one of the best spinners that the game has produced.
However, a Twitter user did not agree with this logic. In an attempt to prove his point, he asked Warne if he ‘understands how spin works?’. Well, this was the beginning of a barrage of tweets that trolled the user.
Virender Sehwag and others join the party
As soon as this reply went viral, Twitter users wasted no time in dishing out trolls and memes towards that user. Even Virender Sehwag, who is known for his sarcasm on Twitter, joined the party and provided his comments. Here are a few tweets in this regard:
