Former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra and veteran Australian speedster Mitchell Johnson were engaged in the war of words on Friday on micro-blogging site, Twitter, over the ‘average’ review of Perth pitch by International Cricket Council (ICC).

Mitchell Johson took to Twitter to express his disappointment over the review of Perth pitch given by match referee Ranjan Madugalle writing, “Nothing wrong with it. It was exciting to watch a contest between bat and ball for a change and not these dull flat tracks being served up constantly. I’d actually be interested in knowing what a good pitch is? Hope for another exciting test at the MCG.”


Replying to Johnson’s comment, a fan reminded the Aussie about the pitch’s inconsistent bounce. Responding to the fan’s remark he said, “Inconsistent bounce use to happen a lot, the pitch is supposed to deteriorate. Is it any different to a pitch that spins a metre or more & stays low?”


Soon Aakash Chopra also joined the debate reminding Johnson about Marcus Harris’ wicket by Hanuma Vihari in the first innings.
