British Airways was trolled on Twitter on Friday after Sachin Tendulkar took to the social media platform to express his disappointment with the airline’s service while on his visit to the United States.

Tendulkar is currently touring the country as part of the Cricket All Stars T20, a three-match T20 series involving retired international cricketers started by the Master Blaster and Australian spin legend Shane Warne in a bid to promote the sport in the US. Warne’s Warriors clinched the series 2-0 over Sachin’s Blasters in Houston on Wednesday, having won the first match in New York. The final match will be played in Los Angeles on Saturday.

Tendulkar tweeted about his family member’s ticket not being confirmed, as well as his baggage being misplaced, with the hashtag #NeveronBA.

Known to be prompt with complaints about customer service, British Airways responded to Tendulkar, requesting details about his misplaced baggage.

It didn’t take long for other Twitter users to react, given Tendulkar’s 8.4 million follower count.

Tanmay Bhat, co-founder of comedic group All-India Bakchod (AIB) went on a mock Marathi rant of his own.

Lastly, there were a few who took note of the triviality of the entire incident.
