England spinner Matt Parkinson’s old tweets about Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni go viral: England’s upcoming spinner Matt Parkinson is yet to make a name for himself at the international level but already he finds himself in an unwanted controversy. The English spinner was a criticizer of the Indian captain Virat Kohli and his predecessor MS Dhoni.
While Kohli and Dhoni have a lot of fan following all over the world, every coin has two sides. If people love you, there will also be people who hate you. So, before becoming a top cricketer, Matt Parkinson was a fan and he belonged to the second category of fans who used to spread hatred on social media.
This behavior is totally unacceptable and since Parkinson has become famous now, his old remarks have come up. In many of his tweets, he has abused the Indian captain Virat Kohli for his behavior and batting skills while he has even referred the Indian team as cheats.
He called MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli as disgraces of the cricket world while he even slammed the standard of Indian domestic cricket after knowing the fact that Ravindra Jadeja has 3 triple centuries to his name.
The English players have always caught the ire of the Indian fans because of their behavior on Twitter. Michael Vaughan and Kevin Pietersen have often been trolled for their remarks made online while the likes of Jofra Archer on the other hand, have gained popularity for their tweeting abilities.
Here are the screenshots of his tweets –
Just like Parkinson, Archer was a fan before making his international debut and surprisingly, he predicted several things of the future as a fan. This behavior received great reception from the fans as many called Archer a God. However, the words that Parkinson used for cricketers way superior than him are totally unacceptable and it will be interesting to if the ECB, BCCI or ICC takes any action against him.
