Mohammad Azharuddin is in the limelight for a mistake that he committed in a tweet.
In the world of social media, even a small mistake made by a person in a tweet can be used to troll them. And, if the person happens to be a celebrity, then people can pounce on him. There is no doubt that cricket is a religion in India, and the players receive unprecedented attention. So, if a player, current or former makes a mistake on social media, it is bound to attract immense attention.
Now, Mohammad Azharuddin is in the limelight for a mistake that he committed in a tweet. England pace bowling legend Stuart Broad has been ruled out of the second Test match against India due to injury, and this was the issue that Azharuddin had tweeted about.

“With injuries to Chris Broad and Jimmy Anderson, England will have a second string of bowlers. Advantage India,” tweeted Mohammad Azharuddin.

I feel really not Azhar bhai..
Broad was not threating much in the first test machi,, rohit and Rahul was managing him very well.
Anderson yes. But still mark wood is very good in recent days and any new bowler will definitely do the big impact to prove himself.

Second string bowlers are also very lethal ones. Cannot underestimate them!
