Virendra Sehwag slammed over his ‘Chammiya’ remark for Virat

Indian cricketer turned commentator Virendra Sehwag’s on-air remark on Virat Kohli was deemed absolutely ‘derogatory’ after the latter’s celebratory dance over a wicket during the fifth Test between India and England.

The incident took place on Day 3 of the final Test at the Edgbaston when Mohammad Siraj removed England wicketkeeper-batsman Sam Billings for 36 runs and Kohli expressed his excitement with his dancing celebration over the wicket.

Sehwag was making commentary in Hindi when he made an ‘offensive’ remark saying, “Chammiya naach rahi hai waha.” The video went viral on Twitter soon after, erupting an outrage among cricket lovers who demanded Sehwag to be removed from the commentary duties for the match.
