He did this because Sri Lankan legend’s first name ‘Mahela’ sounds same like a Hindi word ‘Mahila’, which stands for woman. Though, Jayawardena trolled him in a classy style and tweeted;
You should know the difference of Mahela and Mahila? 😳 https://t.co/bw6SFCK3ih— Mahela Jayawardena (@MahelaJay) March 8, 2017
