Pakistan journalist tries to mock Venkatesh Prasad, gets a fitting response from the former India pacer

‘Indranagar ka Gunda’ trend began after Rahul Dravid’s hilarious new avatar for a television commercial.

Former India fast-bowler Venkatesh Prasad gave a perfect response to the Pakistan journalist who tried to take a dig at him. It all started when Prasad took to Twitter to join the ‘#IndranagarkaGunda’ trend. The trend began after former India skipper Rahul Dravid’s hilarious new avatar for a television commercial.

Dravid featured in an ad for CRED, a Bangalore-based credit card bill payment platform. In the commercial, Dravid can be seen shouting at others from his car angrily. In one of the scenes, he is also seen saying “Indiranagar ka gunda hun main”. Following the trend, Prasad posted a photo of the famous incident that took place between him and Aamer Sohail during the India-Pakistan clash at the 1996 World Cup.

Sohail had pointed his bat to the boundary line after hitting Prasad for a boundary. But on the very next delivery, Prasad castled him to achieve one of the sweetest pieces of revenge in the game. Posting a picture of that incident, Prasad wrote: “Me to Aamir Sohail in Bangalore at 14.5- #IndiraNagarkaGunda hoon main”

The tweet, however, did not go down well with a Pakistani journalist named Najeeb ul Hasnain as he wrote: “Prasad only achievement in his career.”

Well, it did not take him long to regret his words as Prasad gave it back to him in the classiest manner possible. The former cricketer reminded the journalist of his achievement when India and Pakistan met in the 1999 World Cup. Prasad picked up a five-wicket haul in that game as Pakistan failed to chase down 228.

“Nahi Najeeb Bhai. Had reserved some achievements for later. In the very next World cup in Eng in 1999, took 5/27 at Manchester against Pakistan and they were unable to chase 228. God bless you,” Prasad responded to the journalist.
