BCCI’s Twitter handle gone mad and posted a couple of out of the stadium tweets before the start of 4th One Day International between India and Australia.
In case you missed it
India won the first game by 26 runs, second game by 50 runs and the third game by 5 wickets. The visitors, now playing for pride after going 0-3 down in the five-match series.
The 4th ODI
In fourth ODI, Australia won the toss and opted to bat first on a flat-greeny turf.
A few minutes later… BCCI’s official handle, which has 5.3 million odd followers, posted the toss update on their Twitter handle but with a massive blunder.
It posted two tweets back to back
“Welcome to the 1st T20I between India and Australia #INDvAUS #TeamIndia”.
“1st Twenty20: Australia win toss and elect to bat #INDvAUS #TeamIndia”.
Soon after the mistake, fans massively trolled the Indian cricket board’s Twitter account for the mistake.
Later, BCCI’s Twitter account controller realised the mistake and deleted both the tweets and posted again correctly.
“(The wicket) will slow up as the game goes on. It has been a bit disappointing so far and we have to get back to winning ways”, S Smith said at the toss.

Indian captain Virat Kohli said, “every game is a motivation for us”.
“We want to grab every opportunity. It is difficult to create good habits and even more difficult to follow those habits”, he added.
