Well! Genuinely, Ashwin is not that fast on the field and is often criticized for his lethargy. Responding to Ashwin’s tweet, Herschelle Gibbs attempted to take a jibe at the cricketer saying he would finally be able to run faster. See Gibbs’s tweet below:

 

 

Apart from his not-so-fast running speed, Ashwin is also known for his candid and sharp remarks whenever he feels provoked, both on and off the field. So how could Gibbs’s tweet not have triggered sarcasm from him.
