Murali Vijay faces Twitter roasting for refusing to congratulate Dinesh Karthik


India on Sunday pulled off an extraordinary win against Bangladesh in the three-nation T20 Nidahas Trophy in Sri Lanka. The hero of India’s splendid victory was Dinesh Karthik, who smashed the last ball off the match to a remarkable six. India needed five runs off the last delivery to win the match.

Karthik was widely hailed for his heroic innings that allowed his team lift the T20 trophy. However, Karthik’s Tamil Nadu teammate, Murali Vijay, ignored to congratulate the hero of the final in his tweet. Vijay wrote, “Remarkable win boys @bcci ? pretty much typifies the brand of cricket we play ?? #INDVBAN #Champions #TeamIndia #supremacy #NidahasTrophy #NidahasTrophyFinal.”

For the novice, Vijay and Karthik was very good friends until the former was found to be in a relationship with the latter’s wife. Karthik later divorced his wife, who’s now married to Vijay. Twitter users were quick to detect the reason for Vijay’s refusal to congratulate Karthik. Soon, Vijay was facing incessant trolling on the microblogging site.
