Virender Sehwag, India’s first Test triple centurion, turned 39 on October 20, 2017. Although he retired from international cricket in 2015, his second innings as a commentator, coupled with his active social media presence, continue to enthral his followers with some of the most interesting, funny and retweet-worthy tweets. Whether it is banter with international players, birthday messages or his simple observations about day-to-day life presented as #ViruKaGyaan, he never fails to impresses his audience.


However, during an interaction on Twitter with wicketkeeper-batsman Parthiv Patel, the cricketer-turned-commentator ended up being on the receiving end of a troll.

In a tweet, Sehwag posted a photo of hand-shaped rotis along with the caption:


It meant that as the new bride came in, the husband asked her to make roti from her hands.

The former Indian batsman posted the same photo, but this time tagged Parthiv Patel and asked him whether he would like to use them as wicketkeeping gloves.

Patel, who is part of India’s squad for the ongoing Test series against South Africa as a reserve wicketkeeper, quickly replied to Sehwag’s tweet and responded that maybe Sehwag could use them to protect himself in Delhi winters.

Patel, who had made a comeback to the Indian side after eight years during the home series against England last November, is currently in South Africa with the squad for the ongoing three-match Test series.

The banter between the two gave enough fodder for the Twitterati to laugh and it didn’t take much time for the post to get viral.
