Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag took to social media to give a detailed explanation for his recent trolling of the Pakistan cricket team.
Earlier, Sehwag, took a jab at the Pakistan cricket team and posted a strange comment on X (formerly Twitter) regarding the departure of the Men in Green from India.
“Pakistan Zindabhaag! Have a safe flight back home,” Sehwag wrote.

Sehwag’s remarks came amid Pakistan’s uncertain fate in the ongoing ICC World Cup 2023 as they face the possibility of elimination.
Sehwag, once again took to his social media and defended his comments by delving into the historical performances of both the Indian and Pakistani cricket teams in the 21st century. He highlighted India’s consistent run to the semi-finals in five of the last six World Cups, comparing it to Pakistan’s only semi-final run in 2011.
“In the 21st century there have been 6 ODI World Cups. In 6 attempts only once in 2007 we have failed to qualify for the semi-finals and we have qualified in 5 out of the last 6 World Cups. On the other hand only once Pakistan have qualified for the semi-finals in 6 attempts in 2011 ,” Sehwag wrote.
The former cricketer went on to criticize what he termed as “ridiculous claims” by the Pakistan camp, accusing the ICC (International Cricket Council) and BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) of changing balls and pitch conditions.
“And they are making ridiculous allegations accusing ICC and BCCI of changing balls and pitch,” he added.
Sehwag also expressed his displeasure over the behavior of former Pakistan Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif, who allegedly mocked India.
“Their PM makes fun of us when we lose to another team even though we have beaten them,” Sehwag wrote.
Moreover, Sehwag didn’t stop there, pointing out a specific incident involving a Pakistani player who posted pictures of himself enjoying tea in Hyderabad with sarcasm to mock an Indian soldier. He also drew attention to a controversial statement made by the PCB (Pakistan Cricket) chief, who referred to India as ‘Dushman Mulk’ (enemy country) on camera.
“On reaching here, their player is posting pictures of them enjoying tea in Hyderabad with sarcasm to mock our soldier. The PCB chief on camera is referred to in our country as Dushman Mulk,” he added.
The cricketer argued that such actions on Pakistan’s part make it difficult for them to expect love in return. He emphasized that good behavior goes both ways, and those working in the preaching class should be prepared to receive it in kind.
“And they expect love for their hate. And that preaching class, he is two-way,” Sehwag said.
In a concluding statement, Sehwag stated that those who behave well will be treated well by us and those who don’t can expect retribution at the right time. On the field and off it.
“Jo Achha vyavhar kare uske saath hum bahut hi achhe, aur jo aisa vyavhar kare toh sahi mauke par soot samet lautana it is my way. On the pitch, either, off the pitch,” he concluded.
There have been 6 ODI world cups in the 21st century.
In 6 attempts, only once in 2007 have we failed to qualify for the semi-finals and have qualified for 5 of the last 6 World Cups. On the other hand, Pakistan have only qualified for the semi-finals once in 6 attempts in 2011.
