Two political parties engaged in a conversation to derogate each other.

We often joke about Kedar Jadhav's bowling action. His point of delivery is lower than others and that creates a problem for the opposition batsmen. But this time it has created a problem for political parties; BJP and Congress, who tried to defame each other.

The two parties never miss the chance to pull each other's leg. Their followers also remain active when it comes to attacking each other. No doubt the political agendas are easily spread through social media as it gets good reach.

Divya Spandana, who handles Digitial Communications for Congress party tried to take a dig at the fall of rupees' value in comparison to the dollar. During the India vs Pakistan game she wrote, "Kedar Jadhav's bowling action is so low. Still not as low as the value of Rupee ???? #INDvPAK."

That comment peeved the BJP supporters, while they were countering Divya, the official Twitter account of BJP Karnataka came up with a personal comment on the Congress activist and wrote, "Not sure about Kedar Jadhav’s bowling action but your IQ for sure is lower than entire Pakistan teams performance."

One thing common between the exchange of words between the two parties was our very own Kedar Jadhav. Talking about his performance against Pakistan it did surprise everyone as he came good for India with the ball.

The conditions were supportive to the slow bowlers and Kedar made it count. Bowling nine overs, he bowled a maiden and picked three wickets giving away just 23 runs. However, he didn't get to bat as India already chased down the target of 163 in 29 overs and won the game by 8 wickets.
