If you’re active on social media, you can’t just ignore the witty and impactful posts of alumni. India opens Virender Sehwag. After pulling the curtains on his international career in 2015, he has entertained his fans on the social space and is hardly missing any issues to comment on. And if it’s anything in the context of Pakistan’s big rivals, then he goes full guns blazing, like he did with bat in hand back in his playing days.
Sehwag on Thursday morning delighted his followers with a hilarious tweet about his former Indian teammate Ashish Nehra. In fact, he shared a screenshot of a message from a Pakistani political commentator, called Zaid Hamid, praising his country’s javelin thrower, Nadeem Arshad, for winning gold at the Commonwealth Games ( CWG) 2022 recently concluded in Birmingham.

In his tweet, Hamid attempted to belittle India’s star athlete Neeraj Chopra, who withdrew from the Games due to injury. But as part of due process, he misquoted Chopra as “Ashish Nehra.” The error was spotted by Sehwag and once the former Indian cricketer shared the screenshot, Hamid, whose Twitter profile was withheld in India in response to a legal request, became the target of jokes.
“And what makes this victory even sweeter is the fact that this Pakistani athlete destroyed Indian javelin throwing hero Ashish Nehra… In the last competition, Ashish beat Arshad Nadeem… What a sweet Revenge is coming…” Hamid tweeted.
Sehwag, in his post, wrote: “Chicha, Ashish Nehra is currently preparing for the UK Prime Minister’s election. So relax.

Sehwag asked Hamid to relax, but netizens couldn’t help but share their thoughts. The Pakistani political commentator was brutally trolled for his grave mistake. Here’s how people reacted:

Nadeem on Sunday became the first javelin thrower from the subcontinent to clear the 90m mark to win the gold medal at the Commonwealth Games Birmingham 2022.
Nadeem, who regularly fights with India’s Tokyo Olympics gold medalist Neeraj Chopra and even occasionally uses his javelin in competitions, earned bragging rights with the Indian by becoming the first to clear the bar. 90 meters.
