A troll who thought he could hit Ravichandran Ashwin out of the park by suggesting that the offie learn bowling from England all-rounder Moeen Ali instead ended up being clean bowled
India's ace off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin
Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin is not part of India's T20 international squad that's playing England in the three-match series.
Having shouldered the bulk of responsibility in India's recent Test and ODI series triumphs, the spin duo of Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja were rested from T20 Internationals.
Ashwin claimed 27 and 28 wickets respectively in India's 3-0 sweep of New Zealand and 4-0 victory over England in the five-Test series and is currently occupying the top one slot in the ICC's latest Test ranking for bowlers. He is also ranked sixth in T20s.
But all that means nothings to trolls out there. A troll thought he could target the 'resting' Ashwin and hit him out of the park by suggesting that the offie learn bowling from England all-rounder Moeen Ali.
The 30-year-old Chennai lad responded with a 'doosra' that left the troll clean bowled.

Moeen has been in great form with the ball in the first two T20s against India. He was named the 'Man of the Match' for his 2/21 in in the first T20 that England won by seven wickets. He again was on target in the 2nd T20I claiming the prized wicket of Yuvraj Singh while giving away a mere 20 runs from his four overs.
Ravichandran Ashwin is 'Mr Cool'
A Twitter user, who saw these performances not in isolation, but as an opportunity to tell Ashwin to learn something from the Englishman. Ashwin though had the perfect reply to shut down the troll, saying that he tuned in to watch the India vs England 2nd T20I after Moeen's spell finished on purpose.
HERE'S WHAT THE TROLL SAID:
