Former India batsman Virender Sehwag is one former cricketer who will not let go of an opportunity to take a little swipe at his former teammates, be it Sachin Tendulkar, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, or anyone else. This time, it was the turn of VVS Laxman being on the receiving end, as his side, Sunrisers Hyderabad, were left praying for rain as they went down by 7 wickets to Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League (IPL) Season 10 Eliminator.

As SRH hoped that there would enough rain to deny any play and allow them to scrape through to Qualifier 2, Sehwag tweeted, "Laxman ji spotted praying for torrential rains in Bangalore. But we need a game.#SRHvKKR

Sehwag also recalled a famous dialogue from the famous Bollywood movie Don.

Heavy rain hit Bengaluru after SRH were restricted to 128 for 7 off their 20 overs. KKR then got to bat at close to 1 a.m. and rattled up the 48 runs needed in 5.2 of the allotted 6 overs.

KKR will take on Mumbai Indians on Friday at the same venue.
