After his ‘vada pav’ tweet did not go over well with Rohit Sharma supporters, former India opener Virender Sehwag provided an explanation. In his own inimitable flair, Sehwag complimented Kolkata Knight Riders all-rounder Pat Cummins on getting the joint-fastest fifty in an IPL 2022 encounter against Mumbai Indians. It was like snatching ‘vada pav’ from the MI players, Sehwag said, referring to Mumbai’s famous delicacy.

“Sorry vada pav cheen liya, moonh se nivala cheen liya. Pat Cummins, with a 15-ball 56, put on one of the most mind-boggling displays of pure hitting ever seen “. Cummins slammed an unbeaten 56 from 15 balls, including six sixes and four fours, in KKR’s 5-wicket win against MI in Pune on Sunday. MI skipper Rohit Sharma’s supporters, on the other hand, were not pleased with Sehwag’s post and chastised the former opener.

Sehwag explained a few hours later with another tweet. The ‘vada pav’ remark was for Mumbai, not Rohit Sharma, according to India’s first triple century in the longest version of the game. Sehwag went on to say that he admires the current India captain’s batting style.

“The Vada Pav allusion refers to Mumbai, a city known for its Vada Pav. Fans of Rohit Sharma, thanda lo, I am a far greater admirer of his batting than most of you “Sehwag sent out a tweet. “The Vada Pav allusion refers to Mumbai, a city known for its Vada Pav. Fans of Rohit Sharma, thanda lo, I am a much larger admirer of his batting than most of you.”
