India was in a commanding position when Mohammed Siraj took a wicket and India’s ex-captain Kohli celebrated with a dance waving his hands in the air. Seeing this Virender Sehwag referred to Virat as “chhamiya”. The former Indian opener has been in controversy for his comments about James Andersen’s age and also about the sledging incident between Kohli and Bairstow. When Andersen dropped a catch, Sehwag referred to him as “buzurg”, which means an old person.

Sehwag tweeted about the banter between Kohli and Bairstow saying that the Englishman was playing like Pujara and Kohli’s sledging made him Pant. This tweet by the former batsman was also not much liked by cricket fans. After these comments, especially the one made for Kohli, netizens are demanding the removal of Sehwag from the Hindi commentary panel.

A Twitter user shared the video of the moment when Sehwag made that remark, to call him out for the words he used.

People are demanding an apology from Virender Sehwag.
