Former Indian cricketer Virendra Sehwag was one of the most explosive batters to grace the game, and after hanging up his boots, he has earned a reputation for being the quirky best. Sehwag was again at his best following exceptional innings by KKR all-rounder Pat Cummins, who led KKR to victory last night. He posted a funny tweet after Cummins' blinder of an innings gave Mumbai Indians their 3rd straight defeat in IPL 2022.

After KKR snatched the victory from Mumbai's jaws, the 43-year-old tweeted, Moon se Nivala cheen Liya ,, sorry vada pav cheen liya. Pat Cummins, one of the most insane display of clean hitting , 15 ball 56..Jeera Batti #MIvKKR."

However, Sehwag's tweet didn't go down well with MI fans as they suspected the former Indian cricketer was taking a dig at Rohit Sharma. After the backlash, Sehwag posted yet another tweet and clarified that the reference was only for Mumbai as the city thrives on that snack. He wrote, "The Vada Pav reference is for Mumbai, a city which thrives on Vada Pav. Rohit fans thanda lo , I am a bigger fan of his batting than most of you guys."

Speaking of the match, Suryakumar Yadav (52 off 36) and Tilak Verma (38 off 27) guided MI to a respective total of 161-4 in 20 overs of their first innings. Skipper Rohit Sharma again failed with the bat as he scored 3 off 12 deliveries. Debutant Dewald Brevis also played some scintillating shots and added 29 runs on board with a strike rate of 152 but was hunted down by Varun Chakravarthy. Pollard's 22 off five balls bolstered MI's inning as it took the total to 161.

Pat Cummins stole the show as he smashed 56-runs in mere 15 balls hitting 6 sixes and 4 fours in his blistering knock. Daniel Sams was at the receiving end of Cummins' onslaught as the bowler conceded 35-run in the 16th over, which sealed the game for KKR.
