Indian cricketers seem to be more interested in politics than the actual politicians, first Gautam Gambir involving in a feud with Shahid Khan Afridi and now Sehwag also Jumps in. Looks like the opening partner wants to get a new career out of it.
Virender Sehwag tweeted a footage of Imran Khan’s interview with an American television network, MSNBC, during his recent visit to USA:
After the pathetic speech in the UN a few days ago, this man seems to be inventing new ways to humiliate himself.
The anchor clearly said a “voter from the Bronx” and we all heard it correctly but you always hear what you want to.
You can hear it yourself here:
You sound like a welder from the Bronx, says the anchor.

The anchor Joe Scarborough has also clarified what he actually said when this debate started:
What in the world are you even talking about? As I tweeted earlier, I said “voter” from the Bronx. https://t.co/SI1DAJZ90Q

After this the situation was more like:
Joe Scarborough: I said voter!
Sehwag & Indian Media: You are wrong. It is welder!
After the remarkable UNGA speech by Imran Khan there were many Indians who could not do anything other then spreading hate so they opt these cheap tactics to make an impact.
The whole world is recognizing Imran Khan as a Muslim leader, where as the Indians are busy finding ways to overcome their country’s humiliation at United Nations General Assembly.
Although There were a few sane Indians who mocked Sehwag right on spot:
Clearly anchor says "voter" from the Bronx. But bhakti makes Sehwag change it to welder and create a story. https://t.co/K7CUzDnuJC

What an amazing reply:
I find it rather funny that you’re ridiculing IK for supposedly “sounding like a welder” when your PM is literally a chaiwala. https://t.co/nKyb8TvFXp

Another cricketer Ganguly stepped in to save Sehwag from more humiliation and took his side :
Viru .. I see this and I am shocked ..a speech which is unheard of .. a world which needs peace ,pakistan as a country needs it the most .. and the leader speaks such rubbish ..not the Imran khan the cricketer world knew ..speech in UN was poor ..

Most Indians have trouble understanding American accent. He said ‘Voter’ not ‘Welder’ Irony is an Indian trolling Oxford graduate Pakistani PM calling him a welder when his own PM is actually a CHAIWALA masters in ENTIRE political science.
Please let us know in comments what do you think about Sehwag’s tweet and the replies to it.
