Sports presenter Mayanti Langer took the Twitter world by storm during the third ODI between India and New Zealand after she asked Suresh Raina on Twitter for his wifi password.

She had posted a screenshot of the list of available wifi networks at the stadium and one of them was named ‘Suresh Raina’.

Although the middle-order batsman was not part of the squad, Raina does play quite a bit of cricket at the Green Park in Kanpur since he represents Uttar Pradesh in domestic cricket.

Langer, who’s the wife of India international Stuart Binny, tweeted: “Hi @ImRaina possible to get the password to your network?”

And Twitteratis had a field day on the micro-blogging site, posting all sorts of hilarious suggestions to both Langer and Raina.

Some were witty as well and recalled past incidents where the batsman was involved in tech-related fiascos. A couple of years back, Raina’s Twitter handle had offensive tweets aimed at Pakistan.
