New Delhi, Apr 24: Indian batting icon Sachin Tendulkar is celebrating his 45th birthday today. While cricket fans including legendary sportsmen across the world are sending birthday wishes to Sachin Tendulkar, the official website of Cricket Australia posted a tongue-in-cheek tweet to celebrate former Australia fast bowler Damien Fleming. The cheeky tweet left fans of the master blaster fuming who then teach a lesson to Cricket Australia in their own language.
“Some @bowlologist gold from the man himself – happy birthday, Damien Fleming!” says the tweet by cricket.com.au, the official website of Cricket Australia. It also carries a video in which Sachin Tendulkar is seen getting bowled by the former Australian pacer. The video clip of Fleming bowling Tendulkar is of an ODI match in Perth during the 2000 Carlton & United Series.
Minutes after the tweet, fans of Sachin Tendulkar went on to give Cricket Australia taste of their own medicine. Tendulkar supporters dug out videos in which the legendary batsman is seen destroying Australian bowling attack.
Here are the few responses from Tendulkar’s fan:
“No matter how many bans, Australians will never change. On Sachin’s Birthday, you are posting a video how Damien Fleming bowled him. Couldn’t you find another batsman instead of Sachin?” a Twitter user posted. Fleming, who dismissed Tendulkar seven times in combined Test and ODIs, is celebrating his birthday in India due to his commentary stint for the ongoing IPL tournament.
