The Indian cricket team on Saturday joined the league of PM Modi’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan.
The team, led by skipper Virat Kohli, launched the “Swachhta Hi Seva” (Cleanliness is Service) campaign before the start of their final ODI match against Australia at Nagpur on October 1.
As part of the programme to create awareness about cleanliness and PM’s pet initiative among the people, the Men in Blue cleaned up the ground and disposed off the garbage in the dustbin. Virat Kohli gave an important message which we all agree with him. Lending his voice on the initiative, Kohli says that there’s no other place the garbage deserves to be other than the dustbin.
A clip of the same was uploaded on social media by the BCCI.

The Indian cricket team had done their part by lending their voice on a just initiative for the good of the country.
However, it seems like what the Indian cricketers did didn’t go down well with Australian journalist Dennis Freedman. He mocked team India for cleaning ground by tweeting this:
Imagine celebrating putting rubbish in the bin like it’s an achievement. https://t.co/N6uomLDtWw

However, the moment he trolled team India, as usual, he got it back from Twitter. Twitterati has given him all kinds of replies.
You seem to put all your rubbish on twitter, Dennis. And, see, you have achieved so many followers. And you celebrate, too.

I don’t see anyone celebrating in that video. However I see someone clutching at the straws to garner some pitiful likes & RTs.

Interestingly, India won the fifth and final ODI by 7 wickets against Australia and clinched the five-match series 4-1.
