Indian businessman Harsh Goenka found a very unique way to troll the Indian team for their dismal run in the ongoing South Africa series. The poor run for the Indian side continued in the final Test of the three-match series as well. After having elected to bat first, the Indian team could only muster 187 runs on the board in their first innings. Now, the visitors will be banking on their bowlers to pull things back for them in the match.
If the bowlers fail to live up to the expectation, the embarrassment of a whitewash seems to be on the cards for the Indian side. With the critics and the cricket pundits coming hard at the Indian team, the ones loosely associated with the game have now decided to join in the fiery run. Harsh Goenka is not a new name for the cricket fans.
He is the brother of Sanjeev Goenka, who owned the now-defunct Rising Pune Supergiant franchise in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Interestingly, during the 2017 edition of the IPL, Harsh Goenka had made the headlines for his constant jibes on the former India and the former RPS skipper MS Dhoni. He kept on mocking Dhoni on various occasions to belittle the legend the of the game.
And now, Goenka has taken a direct dig at the Indian team. In his recent social media update, he remarked that there is only one way in which team India can win matches in South Africa. And that way is by transporting the Indian tracks to South Africa. Along with his tweet, he also added a photo-shopped picture from an iconic scene from popular Bollywood movie ‘Baahubali’. Virat Kohli is seen carrying the Indian pitch on his shoulder in the picture.
Albeit the tweet from Goenka might not impress many Indian fans, but the performance of the Indian team certainly does indicate towards something of the sort that Goenka claimed. The pill is a bitter one to swallow. If the Indian team wishes to remove such tags, they need to up their game in quick time.
Here is what Harsh Goenka tweeted:
“The only way we can win is by transporting Indian Pitches to South Africa. This should be allowed. #INDvSA,” wrote Harsh Goenka.
