Virender Sehwag playing defence is not a sight that Indian cricket fans are used to seeing. However, after one of his tweets against the captain of the Men in Blue and the Mumbai Indians, Rohit Sharma, backfired, he had no option but to justify himself to the world.
Mumbai Indians have now lost all three matches of the Indian Premier League 2022 season that they have played so far. While their bowling attack has been an issue and the opposing side seems to be feeling too comfortable tearing apart Jasprit Bumrah and his fellow bowlers easily, one major cause of concern for the five-time champions is the fact that their captain and opening batter, Rohit Sharma is finding it extremely difficult to build some good innings.
Commending Pat Cummins, genuinely shocking innings of an unbeaten 56 runs off just 15 deliveries which included four 4s and six 6s, to win the game, Sehwag said that the Australian cricketer snatched away the ‘vada pav’ just as his opponents were about to bite into it.
Not too long ago, it was Sehwag who, in one of his other videos, had called Rohit Sharma a ‘Vada Pav’ because he wanted to mock the Indian skipper for his eating habits and the fact that he has never been a lean athlete like Virat Kohli or Hardik Pandya.
Sehwag went on to say that he has been a bigger fan of Rohit Sharma and his batting style than most of the people who were bashing him on the internet.
