It is not every day that Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan makes errors on perhaps his most loved social media platform – Twitter. So meticulous is the veteran actor that he even goes on to number his tweets. However, in an off encounter between India and South Africa, a series that would eventually be clinched by the Indian eves, Bachchan made the ungodly error of mentioning ‘Australia’ instead of ‘South Africa’.

While this was eventually pointed out by a few trolls on the social media platform, Bachchan eventually apologized rather candidly for his mistake with a follow-up tweet.

The Indians were quite impressive on tour in South Africa as they dominated the cricket with some splendid performances. Needless to say, they emulated the men’s side and went on to clinch the series. At the moment, the Indian eves are playing against a strong Australians, who are seemingly unbeatable at the moment.

In spite of all this, it would seem as though the development of the sport in the country among women is growing ever so quickly and rapidly, something that may ensure their competitiveness among the likes of Australia and England.

He took to Twitter and wrote,”YEEEAAHHH !! CONGRATULATIONS Indian Women’s Cricket Team Historic Series win against Australia in T20 and ODI games .. terrific character, batting and fielding .. that catch by Jemimah on the boundary, OUTSTANDING !! you make us PROUD Indians.”

Here is the tweet

Bachchan however, was quick to rectify his error and apologized almost immediately.

It seemed as though Bachchan was not alone in his praise for the women as they received praise from Sachin Tendulkar as well.

Tendulkar tweeted, “A fantastic knock of 44 in just 34 balls and a stunning catch at deep mid-wicket by the youngster, #JemimahRodrigues. Hope this girl has a very long career. My best wishes to you.”
