Thiruvananthapuram: Former Indian cricketer, pacer S. Sreesanth, who is contesting Kerala Assembly Election 2016 on the Bharatiya Janata Party's ticket, put himself in the soup when he called Kerala a city.
Twitteratis immediately began trolling the BJP candidate from Thiruvananthapuram, reminding him that Kerala is a state and not a 'city'.

Fed up over the trolls, Sreesanth blocked several users.
The former Indian cricketer was later embroiled in a Twitter debate with Congress MP Shashi Tharoor.
