While every former cricketer is wishing a speedy emotional recovery for Steve Smith and David Warner, Russel Arnold, the cricketer turned commentator from Sri Lanka, tried to mock them for breaking down in front of the media. Smith and Warner faced a ban of 12-months imposed by the Cricket Australia for their involvement in the ball-tampering saga. Both of them conducted press conferences where they couldn’t control their emotions while apologising to their countrymen.
These events caught the attention of numerous cricket fans and people from the world cricket. Meanwhile, Arnold took to his Twitter account and asked the people that “Why is everyone crying?”.
Here’s the tweet:
Why is everyone crying ???

Soon after he made this post, people reacted on his post and trolled him for yet another time. People blamed his commentary being one of the reasons behind that ‘cry’. Here’s are some of those responses:
Cause you are shameless

Meanwhile, there was a user who probably got the question right and gave the perfect answer. Let’s h0pe this tweet won’t hurt Russel much.

This is not the first time that Russel got trolled on the social media for his tweet. In December 2017, Russel predicted that India won’t be able to whitewash Sri Lanka in the ODI series.
So Test series ends 1-0 and I can promise you the ODI’s wont end 5-0 like it did a few months ago !!!

Well, the tweeps got the best chance to pull his legs. Even his companion in the commentary box and former Indian cricketer VVS Laxman gave him a fitting reply.
Sure Russel , it won’t in a 3 match series. This prediction won’t fail. https://t.co/zhJTlwUV92

Earlier today, David Warner finally spoke to the media personnel and broke down multiple times. He looked completely devastated and stated that he might never play for his country again.
