Twitter got a bit heated up after a fiery banter between Herschelle Gibbs and Indian spinner R Aswhin. Gibbs's attempt of a healthy trolling on Ashwin did not end well with the offie responding taking a fixing jibe at the former South African batsman.

Ashwin posted a video promoting Nike's new range of running shoes. Gibbs replied saying hopefully the Indian will be able to run faster after getting his hands on them.

But the Tamil Nadu cricketer wasn't amused by the reply. Ashwin is often targetted for his slow fielding. He has been criticized for it many times. Hence, the dig wasn't a cool one for him.

The Indian spinner made a brutal comeback on Gibbs' infamous match-fixing saga in 2000, but later deleted the tweet.

Twitteratis were furious with Ashwin's inability to take a fun banter. Here is how they reacted to it:
