Sri Lankan seamer Isuru Udana has come out in support of India cricketer Ashok Dinda, who has been a constant target of trolls on social media platforms. The Sri Lankan cricketer took to Instagram to show his respect for the Indian cricketer. Sharing a story on his account, Udana took a small screengrab of an interview of the Indian cricketer speaking about the hardships he went through to make it to the big stage.
“This man got more than 400 wickets in first class. Never judge someone without knowing the whole story. You may think you understand, but you don’t,” Udana, who is a part of IPL’s RCB franchise, wrote on his story.
Dinda was part of the Indian Premier League from the inaugural edition in 2008 till 2017, in which he featured for five teams. However, Dinda’s inconsistency has given people the opportunity to troll him.
It has reached up to such an extent that if a bowler produces a poor show, he’s often called to be a part of the ‘Dinda Academy’.
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 pic.twitter.com/qGKEIAhhIT
