England cricketer, Danielle Wyatt, posted a message on Twitter to express her delight for the bat Virat Kohli presented to her. But she was hilariously trolled by many fans for the spelling mistake she did while writing the name of Indian skipper. However, Danielle has made a stunning comeback to shut down the trolls on her for the mistake.

The all-rounder was trending in 2014 when she had proposed Kohli during the World T20 in Bangladesh. Later the batsman gifted her the bat in Derbyshire during a warm-up game when India toured England in the same year. Wyatt was also a proud member of the World Cup winning England side this year. They beat India emphatically by 11 runs in a close encounter at the ‘Mecca of Cricket’ Lords.

What actually happened?

On Monday, Danielle got back to the training ahead of the all important Ashes which Women play across all the formats. She is trying hard to earn a Test call up after a decent career in the limited-overs format. She posted a picture of the bat Kohli had gifted and thanked him. She wrote, “Back training this week. Can’t wait to use this beast Thanks @imVkohli #ping #middlesbiggerthanme.” But the spelling of Virat Kohli was mistaken on the willow and written as ‘Virat Kholi’.

Social media users are usually very eagle-eyed, picked the mistake and trolled her hilariously for not knowing the spelling of the name of her idol. However, after getting trolled she came back with a stunning reply stating that the name was written by Kohli’s own bat maker and not by her. Her message read, “Gets me trolled? His bat maker wrote it not me durrrrrrr #wakeywakey.”

This is not the first time a cricketer or a celebrity has been trolled after making a small mistake. Recently, Bollywood actress Preity Zinta was trolled for wishing Shah Rukh Khan all the best for the final of Caribbean Premier League after the match got over.
