The Sultan Of Multan has been as flamboyant on twitter as he used to be on the cricketing field. Be it his epic birthday wishes or his hilarious one liners, Sehwag has struck a six on Twitter with almost every tweet. He trolls anyone and almost everyone he wishes to and gets loved by the twitteratis for his sense of humor.
More recently though, Sehwag was at the receiving end of some harsh criticism for his tweet on the Indian Blind Cricket Team. After they defeated arch rivals Pakistan comfortably by 9 wickets in the final of T20 Blind Cricket World Cup, Sehwag made a congratulatory tweet that didn’t go down well with the twitteratis. He was criticised for using the Hashtag #OtherMenInBlue for the Blind Indian Cricket Team.
This is the tweet from Sehwag that wasn’t very well received by the twitteratis!

You are disrespecting them by calling them OTHER MEN IN BLUE…they are also MEN IN BLUE

A twitterati went a step ahead and reminded Sehwag that the Captain of the team was also not happy at the reference and thus Sehwag wasn’t right!

Sehwag couldn’t take it anymore and decided to shut them up with his reply!

Indeed Sehwag has been absolutely spot on when it comes to shutting up his haters and this time too wasn’t any different. His wishes didn’t go down very well but his passion for country’s cricket did.
