"Rohit Fans Thanda Lo": Virender Sehwag Clarifies 'Vada Pav' Tweet After Backlash
Indian Premier League 2022: Former India cricketer Virender Sehwag clarified his stance relating to a tweet involving 'Vada Pav' after Pat Cummins' explosive knock against Mumbai Indians.
- Virender Sehwag's tweet didn't go down well with the Mumbai Indians fans
- MI lost to KKR thanks to Pat Cummins knock
- Cummins scored a fifty in 14 balls
Former Team India player Virender Sehwag faced flak for his 'Vada Pav' tweet which he posted after Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) defeated Mumbai Indians (MI) thanks to Pat Cummins' belligerent innings. Sehwag, in his own witty fashion, remarked "Moonh se nivala cheen liya ,, sorry vada pav cheen liya. Pat Cummins, one of the most insane displays of clean hitting , 15 ball 56 ... Jeera Batti," after Pat Cummins played a stupendous knock of 56 runs off 15 balls to help his team script a memorable win on Wednesday. This tweet apparently didn't go down well with MI or Rohit fans and Sehwag had to clear his stance regarding the issue.
Taking to Twitter again, Sehwag said that his 'Vada Pav' reference was for Mumbai and that Rohit's fans should cool down and not worry about anything.
"The Vada Pav reference is for Mumbai, a city which thrives on Vada Pav. Rohit fans thanda lo , I am a bigger fan of his batting much more than most of you guys."

Sehwag's initial reaction was a result of Pat Cummins going all ballistic in a span of just 15 balls.
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)'s Australian pacer had turned the game on its head with a 14-ball fifty which helped his team win their third match of the season by five wickets.
In the process, Cummins equalled the IPL record of the fasted half-century and is now tied with KL Rahul at the top.
The knock drew applause from all corners, including Sehwag.
