The fiery opener from Delhi earlier congratulated the Indian team for their stellar performance throughout the tournament. He wrote on his official twitter handle, “Super proud of the girls. Tough luck today but women’s cricket in India has truly arrived. Thank you, girls. Salute your spirit.” The praise poured in from all corner for the Indian team despite losing the final.

He wrote on Twitter, “Country with 1.2 billion people wildly celebrates 2 losing medals. How embarrassing is that?” replying to a tweet that mentioned how the two medalists were welcomed in the country. It did not go well with the hard-hitting batsman and Sehwag in his usual self, gave him a befitting reply saying, “We cherish every small happiness’, But Eng who invented Cricket, & yet2win a WC, still continue to play WC.
