Russel Arnold made a mistake by tweeting wrong stuff at the wrong time. Indian fans who were annoyed by the performance of Virat Kohli and co took as they took out all their frustration at the ex-Sri Lankan cricketer.
The famous commentator Arnold was being cheeky by tweeting about Sri Lanka's last match at Lord's which ended in a draw. He tweeted about it just when India was on the verge of a big defeat at Lord's, in fact, they were crushed by England later the same day.
England hadn't won a single game at Lord's out of last five Tests against Asian teams. They were defeated by Pakistan both times and Sri Lanka had drawn both Tests, while India won a game in 2014. But Joe Root and side better their record after a storming performance against India in their second Test of the 5-match series.
"The last time Sri Lanka played a test at Lords ... it was a draw — just saying," he tweeted.
