Former India opener Virender Sehwag has been presenting his pre and post-match analysis of the games in ongoing IPL 2020 on his official social media handles. Sehwag has started a new show named ‘Viru ki Baithak’ where he discusses the games with his fans. In the recent episode of his show after Chennai Super Kings (CSK)’s10-wicket loss against Mumbai Indians, Sehwag took a dig at Rohit Sharma’s fitness.
Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit missed the game against CSK due to an injury as Kieron Pollard led the side. Mumbai Indians comfortably thrashed their arch-rivals Chennai Super Kings by ten wickets after bundling them out on a paltry 114 while bowling first. It was an easy win for the defending champions, who currently are on the top of the IPL 2020 points table.
After Mumbai’s win over Chennai, Sehwag released his new episode of ‘Viru Ki Baithak’ where he spoke about the game. While mentioning about Rohit’s absence from the playing XI, the former India opener took a dig at the MI skipper’s fitness referring to him as ‘vada pav’. He also went on to refer his replacement Saurabh Tiwary as ‘samosa pav’.
“Rohit was not playing. But so what if vada pav was injured? His spot was taken by samosa pav. I mean Saurabh Tiwary. Understood why?” – Sehwag said on the show.
In Rohit’s absence, Ishan Kishan opened the innings for Mumbai Indians with Quinton de Kock. Ishan went on to score a cracking 68 off 37 balls laced with five sixes and six fours. He was well supported by De Kock, who scored 46 off 37 balls. The duo posted an unbeaten opening stand of 116 runs to take their team over the line without losing a single wicket.
Mumbai Indians will face Rajasthan Royals in their next game on Sunday and will be looking to continue their winning run in IPL 2020.
