India”s former swashbuckling opener Virender Sehwag might have retired from the game of cricket but one can”t simply keep him away from the action. During his playing days, he was famous for his fearless attitude with the willow.
Considered as one of the most deadly batsmen he has murdered almost every bowling line-up in world cricket. He kept things quite simple and had only one way of dealing with the leather ball- “See ball…Hit ball”.

Having retired from all forms of cricket almost 2 years back Sehwag has taken up cricket commentary like many of his fellow team-mates. And ever since then, he has been entertaining his fans with the mic as he once used to with the bat. Also, he is never short of witty humor-filled tweets on the micro-blogging site Twitter. Every now and then some or the other comment of his has been the talk of the town.
Recently he came up with another hilarious message on Twitter after the match between India and Pakistan, in the ongoing ICC Champions Trophy 2017. Sehwag tweeted: Pote ke baad Bete. Koi baat nahi Beta, Well tried ! Congratulations Bharat !#BaapBaapHotaHai #INDvPAK
However, this didn’t quite go well with the former Pakistan cricketer Rashid Latif. He made a video lashing out at Sehwag for his remarks which has now gone viral on the social networking sites. Latif didn”t hold back his words and is seen abusing the former Indian star player.
Check out the video here:
The Indian cricket fans were quite eager to see Sehwag’s response on this issue. However, Viru like always had a unique way of replying back to his critics. He decided to stay silent instead of retaliating in the same fashion and took to Twitter saying:
“A meaningful silence is always better than meaningless words.”
A meaningful silence is always better than meaningless words.
