    The tragedy left everyone heartbroken -- especially those associated with the game. Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar was also among the cricketing legends who tweeted about Phil Hughes.

    Shocked to hear about Phil. Sad day for cricket. Deepest condolences to family, friends and well wishers. RIP #PhilipHughes

    Today, however, an erroneous version of his tweet was published in mainstream Indian newspaper Times of India.

    Indian Twitterati began tweeting pictures of this very serious goof-up.

    This isn't the first time an editing error of epic proportions has occurred in the newspaper. Spanish footballer Raúl was 'Rahul' (common Indian name) in a Times of India headline earlier this month.

    #Messi joins RAHUL (#Raul) as top scorer" #TOI, that's your headline. Seriously?! You've surpassed yourself again!
