Virender Sehwag’s tweets usually make people laugh but the former Indian cricketer would have barely imagined that his congratulatory message for the national blind cricket team would get negative reactions. Even Ajay Kumar Reddy, the blind team’s skipper was involved in this issue and on Tuesday he clarified that his comments were misquoted by the media.
The blind cricket team brought smiles on the face of millions of citizens of the country by successfully defending the Blind T20 World Cup title while registering a comprehensive nine-wicket win over arch-rivals Pakistan on Sunday. Like other celebrities, Sehwag had hailed the team by tweeting, “Congratulations to our #OtherMenInBlue on winning the T20 World Cup for the Blind. They have lit up smiles for a billion people.”
