Virender Sehwag’s tweet after India’s win against Pakistan in the opening game of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 created a lot of controversy.
Taking a dig at Pakistan and Bangladesh, Sehwag called them beta and pota respectively, as both the nations were once a part of India.
However, former Pakistani captain, Rashid Latif, couldn’t take the joke and abused India as well as Virender Sehwag by posting a video on social media.
The video soon became viral and Pakistan had to pay for it. Rashid Latif was brutally thrashed and slammed on Twitter. But, Sehwag decided to remain silent and posted a tweet that was an indirect answer to Rashid Latif’s insulting video.
Though Pakistan was quite confident about India’s defeat against Bangladesh, the team proved their prediction wrong and brutally defeated Bangladesh by 9 wickets.
Players like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli outshone others during the match and the Indian skipper’s game strategy received a lot of appreciation.
Team India was also playing under pressure as they had to take revenge for the insult to the Indian National flag. This historic win got the rival team hilariously trolled on Twitter and Virender Sehwag is also one of those trolls.
India has now defeated Bangladesh and has made it to finals. Team India will be facing Pakistan in the finals and the match if going to b e a treat to watch. Again using the terms beta and pota, for Pakistan and Bangladesh, Sehwag, who is popularly known as the king of Twitter, has taken a dig at both countries.
Here’s what Sehwag has posted:
Well tried Pote. Great effort to reach semis.Ghar ki hi baat hai.
Father’s Day par Bete ke saath final hai. Mazaak ko serious mat liyo bete.

Pakistan will be facing India for the finals on June 18. Incidentally, it’s Father’s Day on the day of the final. It’s going to be double fun seeing India (the baap) defeating Pakistan (the beta) on Father’s Day!
