Legend Amitabh Bachchan never misses a chance to congratulating Indian athletes on their successful performance. Indian women cricket team came back after claiming the limited-overs series in South Africa, the Bollywood veteran sent out a tweet to congratulate the winners but it had an error.
Twitter being the unforgiving forum that it is Bachchan Sr’s tweet started doing the rounds, thanks to an error.
The Shahenshah of Indian cinema tweeted that, “T 2740 – YEEEAAHHH !! CONGRATULATIONS Indian Women’s Cricket Team Historic Series win against Australia in T20 and ODI games .. terrific character, batting, and fielding .. that catch by Jemimah on the boundary, OUTSTANDING !! you make us PROUD Indians ..”

India’s victory in ODIs and T20Is was against South Africa and not Australia, and Big B soon started to get trolled for his wrong tweet. But, later Big B apologized and corrected his tweet, saying, “Apologies .. that should read South Africa NOT Australia.”
Senior superstar Bachchan probably got confused between the two countries as India is presently playing against Australia in the three-match ODI series.
In South Africa Tour Indian Women beat South Africa 2-1 in ODI series and 3-1 in the T20Is series to slate the history as they registered a double series win in South Africa for the first time.
