ECB tweets in Hindi during first Test
Nottingham, July 11: England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has done what Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) could not - Tweet in Hindi.


It was a surprise for many when a match-related Tweet was sent out from ECB's official Twitter handle (@ECB_cricket) yesterday (July 10) for the ongoing India-England first Test at Trent Bridge. Tweets in Hindi continued today too.

ECB's first Tweet in Hindi came yesterday when they asked followers to choose one of the two covers of their official programme for the day. The images on the covers featured India batsman Cheteshwar Pujara and England paceman Stuart Broad.

At the end of the second day's play, ECB tweeted again in Hindi. This time with the update of the scores at the end of the day of the first Test. Today, at the lunch break, they tweeted again in Hindi with the score update at the interval.

Few followers thought the ECB account was hacked when the tweet appeared in Hindi. However, they clarified that they were doing this on a trial basis and wait for the response from their over 300,000 followers.

It is time for BCCI to learn from their English conterparts and send in few tweets in Hindi.

Here are the tweets in Hindi from ECB so far
