Former Australia cricketer Dean Jones found a video on Internet of an elephant roaming inside a Sri Lankan hotel and decided to troll former batsmen from the island nation -- Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara. However, Dean Jones fell in his own trap as former Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene came up with an epic reply to the Australian's tweet. Sharing a video posted by a Sri Lankan user on Twitter, 58-year-old Dean Jones asked Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara if the elephant in the video was roaming inside one of their hotels.
"@MahelaJay @KumarSanga2 which one of your hotels is this Wild elephant trying to find a room for a kip?" Jones said in a tweet.
The Sri Lankan user had captioned the video, saying: "Woke up to a text from my mom about how a wild elephant went into a Sri Lankan hotel and gently wandered around while poking stuff with his trunk."
Former wicketkeeper-batsman Sangakkara was a little gentle in his reply to Jones as he said: "Come experience our wildlife @ProfDeano".

However, Jayawardene decided to destroy Jones with a hilarious reply, saying: "He had come looking for you mate..got the dates wrong."
