Daniel’s motives on Twitter are clear and well-known: to criticise the BCCI and troll Indian cricket and Indian cricketers. Giving a short glance at his tweets will tell you that Daniel Alexander doesn’t spare any chance to mock the Indian cricket team.

One of his go-to ideas is to remind Indian fans of the 36 all-out thrashing that the Indian team had received at the hands of Australian bowlers in Adelaide on their last tour. This is India’s lowest innings score in Test cricket. He has become a laughing stock for Indian fans as he always finds ways to connect anything in the world to the number 36.

Responding to this, one renowned Indian fan, @CricCrazyNIKS, who has 47,000 followers, decided to hit back at Daniel Alexander , but in a different style. Nikhil, in fact, added to Daniel’s fire, by pointing out that stats from the ongoing India-Sri Lanka Mohali Test: Jasprit Bumrah returned with figures of 2/36 and Sri Lanka’s first innings was the 36th time in Tests they batted in India. Indian fans had a good laugh at this tweet at this sarcastic troll of Daniel Alexander.

Talking about the Mohali Test, Sri Lanka have been bowled out for 174 in reply to India’s 574, conceding a massive 400 runs loss. After having scored his career-best 175*, Ravindra Jadeja snared 5 wickets for 41 runs in Sri Lanka’s first innings. For Sri Lanka, Pathum Nissanka was their best batter scoring 61 runs while no other batter could go past 30.
