IPL (Indian Premier League) is a very special tournament not only for players but also for cricket fans. Indian fans have been emotionally attached to this tournament since 2008 and if a foreigner says anything about it, then Indian fans also do not shy away from trolling him. Something similar has happened with former West Indies great cricketer Michael Holding, whose one answer now seems to be overshadowing him.
On Monday evening, suddenly the name of former West Indies cricketer Michael Holding started trending on Twitter. The reason for this was a small statement of Holding which the cricket fans did not like and they did not hold back from giving their opinion on this. Actually, recently Michael Holding gave an interview in which he answered all the questions from racism to Indian captain Virat Kohli.
Significantly, Michael Holding is not seen doing commentary in IPL. During this interview, Holding was asked a question that, “Don’t you find commentary interesting in IPL?” In response, Holding gave a short reply, which became a source of controversy. In his reply, he said, “I only do commentary on cricket.”
This tightened taunt about the IPL clearly meant that Holding does not consider this prestigious Indian T20 league to be cricket. In the past, many former veterans have raised questions about the glare of IPL. When Holding gave a statement, the fans trolled this great player fiercely, and wrote such posts.
Fans left no stone unturned to show the mirror to Michael Holding. Some fans said that when the West Indies team left the tour of India in the middle because their board was not paying the money, why did Holding not say anything on this. While some targeted the West Indies players, saying that most foreign players in T20 leagues held anywhere in the world are from West Indies.
