Virender Sehwag, Manoj Tiwary Take Rashid Latif To Task For Offensive Video
Former Pakistan wicketkeeper and captain Rashid Latif had lashed out at India batting legend Virender Sehwag after India’s big loss to Sri Lanka in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. In a video message on Facebook, Latif made controversial statements against the former Indian opener and Team India. Latif’s video message came after Sehwag’s tweet, which came after India defeated Pakistan in the Champions Trophy opener. After India hammered Pakistan by 124 runs in their first Group B match at Edgbaston on June 4, Sehwag had taken to Twitter to congratulate the Virat Kohli-led India on the big win.
“Pote ke baad Bete. Koi baat nahi Beta, Well tried ! Congratulations Bharat !#BaapBaapHotaHai #INDvPAK,” Sehwag had tweeted, referring to the big win in the practice match with Bangladesh and then the victory over Pakistan.
But it didn’t go down too well with Latif.
Responding to Sehwag’s tweet, Latif posted a video, which ran on Pakistan news channel Siasi Central, lashing out at the former India opener.
Sehwag, who is known for not holding himself back, decided to respond in a calm manner.
“A meaningful silence is always better than meaningless words,” Sehwag wrote on his Twitter account.
In Sehwag’s support, India batsman Manoj Tiwary posted a video from his Twitter account, lambasting Latif for his post.
