Virender Sehwag should be officially crowned as the ‘King of Twitter’. Tweets come one after another in quick successions, almost every day and sometimes multiple times in a day. He seems to be unstoppable at the moment and is at his expressive best.

After trolling different people previously, Sehwag has now targeted his gun towards popular television journalist and presenter Arnab Goswami. It seems that Viru was invited on Arnab’s late night debate show ‘NewsHour’ where Arnab with a panel of experts debate over various trending issues.


But, it seems that the ‘Nawab of Najafgarh’ isn’t really a fan of Arnab’s manner of organizing debates and promptly decided to give the request a ‘thumbs down’.

He let his followers know about his decision with this tweet.

He wrote, “Arnab Goswami wants me to speak on that British guys views on India on NewsHour, but that man doesn’t deserve any airtime, hence I have denied.”

According to his tweet, he was supposedly invited to discuss about the Piers Morgan drama. The person who is referred as the ‘British guy’ is BBC journalist Morgan, most probably.

Sehwag has had a banter with the journo whose remarks regarding India’s performance in the Olympics was taken in bad taste by the people here. Consequently, he faced a strong backlash and troll began to flow. One of the trollers who stole the show was Sehwag.

Just like it happens on every occasion when Viru tweets, there was a very good reaction. One of the best reply to his tweet was this random user called ‘Syntax Error’ who tweeted, “Sir who does not deserve. British guy or Arnab, i understand both.”

The thread is set to go viral in sometime now.
