Yesteryear’s Bengal pacer Ashoke Dinda recently got awarded as the Best bowler by the Cricket Association of Bengal. All the winners will be rewarded on July 27 at a gala dinner held at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Dinda was the highest wicket-taker with 39 wickets in 12 innings. That is exactly what is getting him all the recognition. Meanwhile, Manoj Tiwary was awarded the Best Batsman. But here the focus is on Ashoke Dinda, because of reasons he would like to turn a blind eye and a deaf ear to. He is being rampantly trolled on Facebook, where this news was posted by a sports website.
Dinda, who is a regular at the Indian Premier League was not at his best for Rising Pune Supergiant, yet RPS made it to the finals. He was often trolled on Twitter for not making it to the team and still helping the side win, he was replaced by Jaydev Unadkat who bowled brilliantly in IPL 2017. At the IPL, he has also represented teams like KKR, DD and the Pune Warriors. The 33-year-old may be in the twilight of his career but he still possesses the skill to run in all day and bowl at a consistent pace.
But the story that caught our attention is the fact that Dinda got trolled on the same feat, for winning best bowler by the CAB. Some of the trolls were very funny.
We are certain Dinda would not have liked this sought of a response, but some things cannot be changed. This is just a way of the fans to have a laugh at his expense. Even Dinda, we advise should not take it seriously. Dinda could still play for India as he still has a good couple of seasons of cricket left in him.
Dinda has represented India in 13 One Day Internationals and has picked up 12 wickets, so nothing much can be written or spoken about it as he has never got a long rope in the Blues.
