Ashoke Dinda is in no mood to let trolls off the hook as the fast-bowler posted a message questioning the social media post made by Royal Challengers Bangalore which took dig at him and his T20 record. He said that his angry outburst against the post came because his family dragged into the issue and owing to the use “filthy languages for my daughter and wife”.

‘I personally have no hard feelings for anyone and have always had a fondness for the team for legends like ⁦⁦⁦@imVkohli⁩ , ⁦@ABdeVilliers17⁩ , ⁦@henrygayle⁩ and also since I had once called it home. You are surely answerable ⁦@RCBTweets⁩’ Dinda wrote on Twitter.

Despite being one of the most prolific bowlers in the domestic circuit, Dinda has not had a very good record in IPL, but still has impressive numbers. It needs to be mentioned here that Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) made mention of “Dinda Academy” after Umesh Yadav took three wickets against Kings XI Punjab.

This came after fans had trolled Umesh Yadav after he nearly failed to defend 26 runs off the final over in the RCB vs CSK IPL 2019 match on April 21 and clubbed him in the ‘Dinda Academy’ for bowlers who were plundered for runs in the ongoing season.

Although, RCB quickly deleted the Tweet, it infuriated Dinda, who has also been a part of the franchise, and gave a scathing reply to all the ‘haters’.

Tjhe Bengal fast bowler has played 115 first-class matches, in which he has taken 417 wickets at an average of 28.35 and an economy rate of 3.10.

He has also played 13 ODIs and nine T20Is for the Indian cricket team.

As far as his IPL record is concerned, he has featured in 78 matches in which he has managed to get 69 wickets at an economy rate of 8.20.
