Former New Zealand cricketer, Simon Doull, came up with a classic reply for a netizen, who attempted to troll him. On Friday (May 13), Doull posted a screenshot of an unpleasant message he received on Instagram on his Twitter. The social media user took a dig at the former bowler’s commentary skills, calling him the ‘worst commentator of all time.’
Doull, who’s currently serving in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 as a broadcaster, decided to hit back at the troll with a sarcastic response. The 52-year-old stated the fact that he’s getting regular assignments despite being ‘so bad’ at his work. He also slammed the Instagram user for putting the story through a fake account instead of a real one. The netizens were highly impressed with Doull’s classic response as the comment section got flooded with praises.
In his tweet regarding the same, Simon Doull wrote: “Hmmm. Should I accept or block. Can’t believe I still get work if I am so bad. Hope your amazing at your job who ever you are. Maybe come out from hiding behind a fake name and we can have a chat about our jobs.”

Cricket stars getting trolled is not a new thing and this issue has garnered the limelight in the past. Besides players, the coaches, board members, and Doull, several commentators have also faced heat on social media. While some refrain from reacting to these harsh criticisms, others don’t hold back.
Meanwhile, the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 is moving towards the business end the race for the playoffs has intensified. So far, only Gujarat Titans (GT) have officially qualified to the playoffs while Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Mumbai Indians (MI) are knocked out of the race. Hence, seven teams are in contention to take three slots and only time would tell what the final points table would look like.
Notably, 60 of the 70 league-stage games are already done and dusted. Hence, teams must buckle up to put up a fine show in their remaining games.
