Big B ain't got no time for your sledging.

After Virat Kohli's match-winning innings against Australia in the T20 World Cup, former English cricketer Andrew Flintoff compared him to batsman Joe Root.

Indian cricket lovers did not take kindly to the comparison, and started trolling Flintoff on Twitter.

But the most epic, and unexpected, burn came at the hands of Amitabh Bachchan.

Bachchan tweeted, "Root who? We will uproot Root!!!"
Twitter: @SrBachchan

Bachchan tweeted, "Root who? We will uproot Root!!!"

Flintoff tried to salvage things by pretending not to recognise Bachchan...

(Which got him trolled by Indians further, for other reasons)

But, eventually, he knew he was beat and gave up for the evening.

You don't mess with Indian cricket fans, Andrew.
