See You At The Gabba Mate: Ravi Ashwin’s Wife Prithi Quips After Team India’s Win Against Australia

Prithi Ashwin Gabba Sledging, Prithi Ashwin Ravi Paine

After what is being called a historic win by the Indian Cricket Team against Australia in the Test series, social media has erupted in joy. Prithi Narayanan, wife of cricketer Ravichandran Ashwin, also celebrated India’s series win 2-1 on Twitter, but not without a smart quip. Referencing the sledging that had occurred between Australia captain Tim Paine and her husband earlier in the series, where the former had challenged the latter to a game in Gabba, Narayanan wrote: “SEE YOU AT THE GABBA MATE.” 

According to Indian Express, Paine had remarked, “Can’t wait to get you to the Gabba, Ash.” Ashwin followed it up by saying, “Just like we wanna get you to India, may be your last series.” After India defeated Australia at their Gabba fortress, Narayanan added that their two daughters had “gone a bit cray cray. Running up and down empty hotel corridors.” She even shared a video of her child cheering the team on by the television.

Though Ashwin did not play the final test owing to a back injury, he tweeted, “Good evening from Gabba!! I am sorry I couldn’t play here but thanks for hosting us… We will remember this series forever!”

Prithi Narayanan Live-Tweeting During The Series

Team India’s win comes despite a raging onslaught of racism and sledging through the series, which has led many to especially hail the cricketers’ undefeatable spirit. When the team earned a draw against Australia in the third test, with Ashwin widely lauded for his performance, Narayanan had revealed, “The man went to bed last night with a terrible back tweak and in unbelievable pain. He could not stand up straight when he woke up this morning. Could not bend down to tie his shoe laces. I am amazed at what @ashwinravi99 pulled off today.”

Following the sledging incident, Narayanan had taken a hard jibe at Paine, writing to her husband on Twitter, “Just imagine it is Aadhya crying nonstop at 3 am and ignore.”
