Former Sri Lankan cricketer Russel Arnold never misses a chance to take a dig at Indian cricket team. Team India lost the fourth Test against England lately. They failed to chase down 244 and fell 60 runs short of what could have been their second win in the series. England is now 3-1 up in the 5-match encounter to seal the series.
Arnold in his tweet tried to make fun of India as they lost one more game under 5 days. He wrote, "Test matches are still 5 days aren’t they ??? #justasking."

But once again, the Indian fans have taught him a lesson on Twitter. They roasted the cricket commentator on social media for his dig at Indian team.
Fans are very disappointed with the series loss as they were expecting a much better result than this. Twice in this series, India came to the verge of the victory but ended up losing the game.
Talking about Russel, this is not the first time he has tried to poke the Indian fans. Even during this series, he had reminded everyone of Sri Lanka's last couple of Test results at Lord's, when India was losing.
Here is how fans reacted to his remark:

Well accepted .@RusselArnold69 but a ques for u - will u ask the same thing when YOUR team loses in 3/4 days next time? Will u reply to my msg when i drop u one that day? Or is THIS your character & guts? That you'll throw stones on others - but HIDE when it comes to YOU!— Om Mehta (@om_mehta) September 4, 2018
There should be a test match between SL and Rohit Sharma... Still the match will be over in 3 days and hitman will win.— Patrick Pius (@patrick_pius) September 4, 2018
