I feel uncomfortable with their happiness." Responding to this, former Team India fast bowler Venkatesh Prasad said that whoever wins, but this tweet shows how frivolous and disgusting the thinking of this man is.

Whoever wins is fine, but how sad and pathetic is this man. The fact that this man is given the opportunity to write in publications speaks poorly of publications. Get well soon Mr. Misrable https://t.co/J5f1gbz9YV
