Dinda Academy trolled Ashok Dinda announced his retirement from all forms of cricket on 02-02-2021. The bowler in a press conference at the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) said, “I am today retiring from all formats of cricket. I have sent the mails to BCCI and GCA to this effect”.
What is ‘Dinda Academy’?
Ashoke Dinda represented India in 13 ODIs and nine T20Is. He also played 116 first-class matches for Bengal, bagging 420 wickets. He has even part of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and played for teams like Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Pune Warriors (PW).
The right-arm pacer has also played nearly 80 matches in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and boasts a decent return.
Dinda’s last outing in the T20 tournament wasn’t the best and that seemed to have left a lasting impression on many fans. The trolls created a fictional ‘Dinda Academy’ featuring all bowlers with a high economy rate in the tournament.
Reason for mentioning “Dinda Academy”
The right-arm pacer has been subjected to trolls using his name to highlight a poor showing by a bowler in the IPL 2019.
RCB trolled Dinda
In 2019, RCB’s Twitter handle too had taken a jibe and mention “Dinda Academy” after Umesh Yadav took three wickets against Kings XI Punjab.
RCB’s tweet was in response to those fans who had trolled Yadav after he nearly failed to defend 26 runs off the final over in the clash against Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
Ashoke Dinda’s Reply
While RCB took down their tweet after coming under-fire, Ashoke Dinda took to Instagram to pen a stinging reply for all his “haters”.
