Bengal speedster Ashoke Dinda has delivered impressive performances in the Ranji Trophywhile playing for Bengal. However, his last outing in the T20 tournament wasn't the best and that has seems to have left a lasting impression on many fans. So much so that whenever a bowler has leaked runs in IPL 2019, he has been compared to the Bengal pacer with the term "Dinda Academy" cropping up many a times. Dinda was constantly trolled by fans, so much so that a fellow pace bowler would be compared with him during bad performances.
Such was the case with Umesh who had been struggling to bag wickets and contain runs until he claimed a 3-wicket-haul against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) on Wednesday. Countering the 'Dinda Academy' trolls on Twitter targeting Umesh, RCB came up with a tweet suggesting their pacer no longer should be subjected to such trolls as he has bagged three wickets.
The Tweet reads, However, for all of you who have relentlessly trolled this lad, he said #challengeAccepted and bowled his heart out! 4-0-36-3, 15 off his last two overs & 2 wickets in those! #PlayBold #RCBvKXIP.”
Angered with the trolls, Dinda also took to social media to hit back at haters as he shared his stats in the T20 format. He wrote, “Haters, helping you get you statistics right. Stop and stare well your opinion is not my reality. So shut your hating selves and keep me out of your mouth.”
Dinda has played for India in 13 ODIs, taking 12 wickets at an economy rate of 6.18 and an average of 51. In the 9 T20Is he played for India, the pace bowlers took 17 wickets at an economy rate of 8.17 and an average of 14.41.
