Virender Sehwag is known for his humorous and taunting tweets. He took Twitter to troll several players and their teams in the past.
But this time, his ‘pote ke baad bete’ tweet did not go down well with Rashid Latif, who in turn went Live on Facebook and ranted and abused the former Indian cricketer.
Rashid’s reply came after Pakistan defeated South Africa in their second match, while India went down against Sri Lanka.

Latif also clarified that he has nothing against India and Indians and he also respects other Indian legendary cricketers like Mohammed Azharuddin, Ajay Jadeja, Sachin Tendulkar, Anil Kumble, Harbhajan Singh. He compared Sehwag to these legends and said that the latter should learn how to respect.
Sehwag in reply maintained a dignified silence on this matter. He just counter-tweeted saying, “A meaningful silence is always better than meaningless words.”
A meaningful silence is always better than meaningless words.
