Indian media is famous not only for providing viral news and that too the most impossible ones, they are there to spread the viral rumors as well.
Recently as we all know after Gautam Gambhir announced his retirement from all forms of cricket, news started doing the rounds that he will be joining the politics soon.Which he later cleared by saying no.
The same thing happened with former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag. He took to his social media accounts and declared these news to be fake, in Viru’s style.
Here is what Sehwag posted on his official twitter account based on the trending 10 year challenge meme, but with a difference of five years.

See Ball. Hit Ball. Viru Style.

Ekdum right decision Viru bhaiya. You have only your fans and well-wishers till now, no one hates you, but if you enter politics you'll produce some enemies and haters.
