This did not go down well with a particular Indian fan and commented on the spinners upbringing. He wrote, "You were not raised properly". 

Ashwin replied to the fan calling it light-hearted banter. He tweeted: “It’s a light hearted banter in Tamil. Can be so easily missed due to context and language barrier. I appreciate you being a @davidwarner31 fan, my respect for him is still intact. Tc.”
