England leg-spinner Matt Parkinson deletes old 'insulting' tweets on Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni after getting trolled

England leg-spinner Matt Parkinson deletes old insulting tweets on Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni after getting trolled

New Delhi, Feb 6: England's latest debutant in the ODIs Matthew Parkinson is in the news for all the wrong reasons. The Lancashire leg-spinner apparently has annoyed the Indian fans after his tweets in which he insulted current India captain Virat Kohli and his predecessor Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

After facing backlash on the micro-blogging site, the leg-spinner went on deleting some his tweets but not before he was brutally trolled by Indian cricket fans.

Parkinson made his debut for England against South Africa on Tuesday (February 4) as the 174th cricketer to play for Three Lions in the ODIs. He went wicketless in the game which England lost by 7 wickets.

Parkinson is being trolled for his insulting tweets from the past in which he made some lewd comments about Kohli and Dhoni and even questioned the standard of India's first-class cricket.

Parkinson impressed in the recent warm-up match between England and South Africa XI where he picked up three wickets. However, in the game he was handed his ODI debut at Newlands in Cape Town, the leggie was largely ineffective.
