Matt Parkinson, England leg-spinner who made his ODI debut against South Africa in the first ODI of the 3- match series on Tuesday, is on the target of Indian Cricket fans after the latter made some senseless and abusive tweets about Indian Cricket and players.
The English Cricketer made a number of abusive tweets about Indian players and Indian Cricket back in 2014 when he was just a growing lad with a penchant to cricket. Somehow, just a few days after his ODI debut, the tweets resurfaced on the social platform and all those tweets did not go well with the Indian Cricket lovers as they thrashed the leggie on the twitter itself. After the tweets started going viral, Matt Parkinson also deleted all of his inappropriate tweets. But till then he was too late as the fans had already noticed all those.
From his tweets, Parkinson looks like an ardent hater of Indian Cricket and especially Indian Captain Virat Kohli. Parkinson made these insulting jibes back about MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli in 2014. The Lancashire bowler also termed Kohli, Dhoni disgrace in his tweets. While his another tweet from 2012 calls team India cheats.
While most of his tweets are not possible to mention here (You might have understood the reason why). We have one hatred tweet about Indian Cricket, Parkinson posted, “Shows the awful standard of Indian First Class Cricket that Ravi Jadeja has 3 triple centuries and he can’t bat for shit,” insulting both Ravindra Jadeja and Indian Cricket.
The leg-spinner made his first-class debut for Lancashire in 2016. And in the year 2019, he got a call-up form the England team with the selectors picking him for Test and T20I side. He also made a successful debut in T20I but did not get a chance in the Test squad.
Parkinson deleted his tweet about Virat 🤣
