India made history after clinching 2-1 series win over Australia, the country’s first-ever series win in Australia.
Congratulatory messages poured in for captain Virat Kohli and Team India. Bollywood actress Preity Zinta was also among the well-wishers.
However, the co-owner of Indian Premier League (IPL) team, Kings XI Punjab, made a small error in her tweet. Fans on the social media platform were quick to spot the mistake and went to town trolling the Bollywood star.
“Congratulations to the boys in blue for being the first Asian team to win a test match down under,” tweeted Preity Zinta.

Unfortunately for the Bollywood actress India are not the first Asian team to win a Test in Australia — they are the first to win a Test series Down Under.
Some fans simply corrected the error but a few others were not as kind.

It is the first time India managed the feat since they began touring Australia in 1947-48. Consequently, Virat Kohli became the first Indian as well as the first Asian captain to win a Test series in Australia.
India got the series off to the best possible start by winning the tight opening Test in Adelaide.
