Virender Sehwag received heavy backlash over ‘vada pav’ Tweet following MI’s loss

MI lost their third consecutive match in the IPL 2022. Many reactions stormed the internet after poor MI form and an impressive knock from Pat Cummins

Mumbai Indians are known for having a slow start. And only MI has gone from losing the first 4 matches of the season to winning the championship at the end. This year, MI has already lost its first three matches. In their recent encounter with KKR, Pat Cummins single-handedly outplayed the Indians. However, the MI Paltan still has a lot of hope from the team and the skipper Rohit Sharma. When Virender Sehwag made a Tweet praising Pat Cummins, it had hurt Rohit’s fans’ sentiments. Sehwag’s ‘vada pav’ Tweet received a lot of counteraction on the micro-blogging site.

Check: Sehwag’s Vada Pav Tweet

Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag is known for his witty comments and Tweets. Pat Cummins batted excellently against Mumbai Indians. As a result, Sehwag made a Tweet. He also talked about how Mumbai Indians were snatched off the two points. However, the Tweet didn’t go well with Hitman fans. They instantly came after Sehwag, taking the comment directed as a disrespectful remark at Rohit. So, Sehwag took to Twitter to clarify that the comment was meant for Mumbai, the city. He says- “Rohit fans Thanda lo”.

Moreover, the cricket star added that he is a bigger fan of Rohit Sharma than most of his biggest fans. Thus, he wouldn’t make such a comment on Rohit.

Since Rohit is a Mumbaikar, people often mock him with the term ‘vada pav’. People even question his fitness. However, we’ve seen how active, quick, and efficient Rohit is on the field.

Sharma wrote- “we stick together through thick and thin and that’s just one of our strengths; you ain’t seen nothing yet 💪”. Hopefully, this will boost the team’s confidence after the match. They’ll be eyeing their first win against RCB on Saturday.
