There is a new twist in the Rashid Latif Virender Sehwag tale, with Indian cricketer Manoj Tiwary joining the war of words with a couple of videos he posted on Sunday blasting the former Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman. Latif had lashed out at Sehwag after he posted a controversial congratulatory tweet post India s win over Pakistan in ICC Champions Trophy 2017. Sehwag then chose not to reply to Latif, saying meaningful silence was better than meaningless words. But Tiwary clearly does not believe in those words, as he blasted Latif through video messages, calling the ex Pakistan player s attempt a stunt meant only to get 60 seconds of fame .

In his recorded videos posted through his official Twitter handle, Tiwary can be heard saying, I generally don t upload videos but Latif s comments forced me to. He has tried to defame a legend like Virender Sehwag. So I was wondering what forced him to upload such a video. After thinking for long, I figured out that all he wants is his 60 seconds of fame something which he doesn t get nowadays.

Tiwary did not stop there, as he went on to mock Latif for his poor record as compared to Sehwag and also his poor English skills. You cannot even match Sehwag s numbers. So tell a friend to translate Sehwag s record from English so that you understand how far behind you are in terms of numbers. It will help you become aware of reality and then think ten times before taking such digs at legendary performers of the game.

This act of Tiwary is bound to attract reaction from fans and experts from across the border. Meanwhile, it is notable that it all started with Sehwag s tweet, which then irked Latif and forced him to put up the long video message.
