Former Australian cricketer Dean Jones and South African cricketer Jonty Rhodes had a 'thali' battle on Twitter. Who won? Find it out yourself.

Jones, who is an active Twitter user, shared a picture for Rhodes which had 'Masala Dosa' and he also termed it the best breakfast in Chennai. "@JontyRhodes8 this is the best breakfast In Chennai young man!", he wrote. 

The 57-year-old Aussie has a special connection with Chennai. He had scored his first Test hundred in Chennai only. In fact, it was a double hundred in the famous tied Test match against India in 1986. Jones batted for 503 minutes and he was later taken to hospital after the innings for exhaustion. 

He might have won the battle back then, but this time it was Rhodes who came up with his post which shut him up. Jones had to accept his defeat. 

"I see your breakfast @ProfDeano and raise u a Veg Thali lunch", wrote Jonty. On which, the Australian replied, "You win".
