Virender Sehwag, the former Team India’s batsman and the current wittiest person on Twitter has once again hit the headlines and this time, it is not because he trolled someone or made fun of anyone. But surprisingly, it’s for supporting Pakistan and its skipper Sarfraz Ahmed ahead of India vs Pakistan final clinch.
Feeling confused? Read the complete story here, I bet you’ll also support pakistanis in this context very heartfully.
As we all know when it comes speaking in “ENGLISH”, Pakistani players always lack their confidence to speak as many of the Pakistanis don’t know the language properly. People keep making fun of their English speaking skills. Recently, Captain Sarfraz Ahmad was brutally trolled on social media for his language inefficiency.
This led to comments from some insensitive people mocking him for something so insignificant. The video went viral, numerous people and social media entities poked fun at Ahmed’s English. Even many leading websites carried an article making fun of Ahmed’s English on Facebook.
This article was in response to a video grab on YouTube, that shows Ahmed asking at a post-match press conference “Sab English ke hai kya? (Are they all from English channels?)”

But what came as a surprise response was many Indians came together to respect the cricketer, because “English doesn’t define intelligence”, as one Facebook user commented on the post.
Lending support, even Sehwag who is known to never mince his words on the trending issues has raised his voice over this. The right-handed cricketer defended Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed for his English speaking skills that have come under fire by some trolls.
Here Is His Tweet:
