Gibbs trolled Indian bowler Ashwin of running slow and gets blamed for match-fixing

Social media is a place where things can take an ugly turn in no time. A kind discussion and a pure joke turned humiliating on the social media. It all started when former South African opener Herschelle Gibbs replied to R Ashwin’s tweet. In the tweet, Ashwin promoted a show brand and described the specification of the shoes like the ability to ease running, comfort and etc. As Ashwin is not known as the fastest on the ground, Gibbs replied, Hopefully, you will be able to run a bit faster now Ashwin.”

But, this laughable reply took an awry turn as R Ashwin replied in a taunting manner. Ashwin replied, “Surely not as fast you did mate, unfortunately, I wasn’t as blessed as you were. But I was blessed with a wonderfully ethical mind not to fix games which put food on my plate.”

Gibbs felt short of words, he stated it was best to move on from the topic, “Can’t take a joke I see anyway moving swiftly on..”

Later Ashwin tweeted to clarify things. Ashwin said, “I totally believed my reply was a joke too, but look how people and yourself perceived it. I am totally game for this sort of fun mate, we shall dine over this sometime.😂

Herschelle Gibbs was found in a match-fixing during South Africa’s tour of India in the year 2000. But, Gibbs was suspended by the Cricket Council for six months and was heavily fined for being involved in the fraud.
