Ravichandran Ashwin engaged in a humorous exchange with a parody account impersonating Prime Minister Narendra Modi on X (formerly known as Twitter), during which they shared witty banter.

During the Asia Cup opener between Pakistan and Nepal, Ravichandran Ashwin, India’s premier spinner, found himself in a light-hearted exchange with a parody account impersonating Prime Minister Narendra Modi on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, bringing some humor to the event.

Despite his omission from India’s Asia Cup squad, Ashwin took to social media before the tournament’s kickoff to reminisce about Virender Sehwag’s remarkable triple century at Multan Cricket Stadium. Ashwin expressed his curiosity about the emerging talents within the Nepal cricket team, which was making its inaugural appearance in the Asia Cup.

“Asia Cup begins today at Multan where @virendersehwag made a triple hundred, but for today @CricketNep fans can u fill me in about the exciting talents coming from your part of the world? #PAKvsNEP,” Ashwin tweeted.

In a swift exchange, the parody account responded, “Nepal for the win, full support to them.” This prompted funny Ashwin’s reply, “Yes sir, hope you get to watch the game amidst your busy schedule.”

Their banter continued as Ashwin shared his thoughts on the match. “Pretty impressive from Nepal so far, but they have to get past this man now. #PAKvNEP,” following the dismissal of Pakistan’s openers.

The parody account chimed in again, saying, “Thanks for supporting NEPAL. Ashwin I’m watching too.” Ashwin, showcasing his humor, added, “Sir, I will update you on the proceedings from the #PAKvNEP game, you carry on with your meetings.”

Their playful interaction a few days ago also included Ashwin congratulating the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) on Chandrayaan-3’s success.

On his YouTube channel, Ashwin has highlighted the potential of Pakistan’s cricket team, emphasizing that Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan’s consistent batting performances could elevate them into formidable contenders for both the Asia Cup and the World Cup.
