Recently concluded Border-Gavaskar trophy probably has been one of the best India vs Australia Test series. It had all the ingredients of a typical top team’s clash. Ravi Ashwin who has had a wonderful series took twitter to express his feelings.

All began with Virat Kohli missing the final Test due to an injury he suffered in the 3rd Test while trying to save a boundary. Former Australian batsman Brad Hodge questioned Indian skipper’s ethics.

This certainly wasn’t supposed to go down well with the Indian fans. As a result he was immensely criticized by the same for his remarks on the Indian skipper. Virat Kohli is known for his dedication towards his work and country. Brad Hodge’s comments were absolutely absurd.

After heavily being bashed by the fans for his comments, Brad Hodge apologized to Indian fans and particularly Virat Kohli. He said ‘he didn’t intend to hurt anyone’. Earlier Aussie skipper Steve Smith also apologized for ‘letting his emotions get the better of him’ at the post match presentation after the conclusion of series.

Indian fans might well have accepted the apology of the former Australian batsman. But the Indian off-spinner Ravi Ashwin doesn’t seem to have forgotten about it just yet. Ashwin took the help of micro blogging website twitter to express his thoughts regarding the whole scene involving Brad Hodge.

The Chennai born off-spinner trolled the former the current Gujrath Lions coach. Ashwin said 30th March should be marked as ‘world apology day’. 30 year old ashwin tweeted, “On a lighter note, from this year onwards 30th march will be remembered as world apology day”


Asdhwin has had a great season so far, it remains to be seen if he can replicate his form with Rising Pune Supergiants.
