Melbourne: Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc has, inadvertently, left a message meant for Virat Kohli on a parody account of the India skipper.
Starc left the recently concluded India-Australia series mid way after sustaining a stress fracture on his foot. Starc, who was congratulating Kohli for the series win mixed his real account to the parody one. He wrote on twitter, "Hey friend :) Hopefully I don't have to look for a new ipl team?? Haha media hey! Didn't get a chance to have a proper catch up mate but Congrats on the series win and on your summer personally. I hope that shoulder is on the mend and not too bad. Good luck for the ipl, here's hoping to an RCB win. Cheers mate."
The tweet soon went viral, leaving Starc a bit embarrassed.
India bagged Border-Gavaskar trophy 2-1 after winning the fourth and final Test by eight wickets. The left-hand fast bowler who has been a part of Royal Challengers Bangalore side earlier, decided to leave Indian Premier League's 10th edition while RCB skipper Kohli is also out of the cash-rich league for two weeks after sustaining a shoulder injury during the third Test match between India and Australia in Ranchi.
