Suresh Raina has denied posting a recent tweet that used harsh words against the Pakistan cricket team on his official Twitter page.
The tweet which read, “Ek do din late gaye ghar !!!! Woh bhi besharam ki tarah Gaye... Bye bye Pakistan!!!!” kicked off a storm of controversy. The cricketer later deleted the tweet.
He put the blame on his nephew for the entire fiasco as well as stating that as a cricketer he would never disrespect another team.
He tweeted,“Smart phones r dangerous. Discovered it last night after my nephew posted random tweets. I'm a sportsman and would never disrespect.”
Another tweet followed, “Though I already deleted it, I felt its better to clarify. To all those who r upset, I'm sorry. I'm not one to show disrespect.”
This topic became a rage on Twitter to the extent that even an account named @raina_nephew was created, thus taking a dig at the all-rounder.
