In the world of social media, even a small mistake made by a person in a tweet can be used to troll them. And, if the person happens to be a celebrity, then people can pounce on him. There is no doubt that cricket is a religion in India, and the players receive unprecedented attention. So, if a player, current or former makes a mistake on social media, it is bound to attract immense attention.

Now, Mohammad Azharuddin is in the limelight for a mistake that he committed in a tweet. England pace bowling legend Stuart Broad has been ruled out of the second Test match against India due to injury, and this was the issue that Azharuddin had tweeted about.

The former Indian batting legend had made a blunder and had referred to Chris Broad, who is the father of Stuart Broad in his tweet, and that has caught the limelight on social media.

“With injuries to Chris Broad and Jimmy Anderson, England will have a second string of bowlers. Advantage India,” tweeted Mohammad Azharuddin.
