The Indian team is playing it’s first World Cup match today, again South Africa. However, the team’s coach, Ravi Shastri, made it to the news for an entirely different reason.
Ravi Shastri posed for a photo with two female fans and Australian journalist Dennis Freedman passed a mocking tweet on the same.

Though Dennis passed a sarcastic comment on Indian team’s preparations, Twitterati jumped to respond and how:
