Mumbai: Former Australian speedster, Mitchell Johnson was brutally trolled by Indian fans on Twitter for his comment on Team India pacer Ashish Nehra. The whole episode started with Twitter banter between former Australia pacer and New Zealand fast bowler Mitchell McClenaghan.

As both the cricketers trolled each other in a banter, Johnson challenged McClenaghan to a bowl-off to see who was the fastest left-arm pacer in the world over the age of 30.

Dean Jones chipped in with his thoughts with a tweet, saying, "Currently Ashish Nehra".

With Nehra coming into picture out of nowhere, Johnson joked, "His run up is definitely faster", making Indian fans furious who came out in support of the Indian pacer.

As one user pointed out that Nehra’s line and length is much better than others, Johnson countered, “Hahaha really with an Ave over 40 & Strike rate close to 80 Just so you know, we are just having some banter”.

 

 

Nehra, who is with the Indian side for the T20 series against Australia, did not find a place in the starting XI in the first T20 game, which India went on to win by nine wickets on the DLS method.
