Virender Sehwag Insulted James Anderson In A Funny Way

Former India opener Virender Sehwag was again slammed by the netizens during the IndiaEngland Edgbaston Test for terming James Anderson as “buzurg (oldie)” after the 39-year-old had dropped Ravindra Jadeja’s catch.

During India’s second innings, on the fifth ball of the 70th over, bowled by Matthew Potts, Jadeja lobbed up the ball via a leading edge as he while he closed his bat face a little too early. The ball ballooned over Anderson who was standing at cover; the veteran pacer jumped and even managed to get a hand to it but could only parry it and wasn’t able to complete the catch on the rebound.

Virender Sehwag called Anderson “Buzurg”

As soon as Anderson dropped the catch, speaking for the Hindin commentary, Sehwag said: “Buzurg Anderson ne catch chhod dia hai yahan pe Ravindra Jadeja ka. Pakad lete toh Bharatiya line up yahan khatam ho jata kyunki iske baad sirf Jasprit Bumrah aur Mohammed Siraj bachte.

(Translation: “Old Anderson has dropped Ravindra Jadeja’s catch here. Indian batting would have ended had he taken Jadeja’s catch with only Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj left to bat.”)

Fans were really left furious by this remark from the legendary Indian opener.

Here are some of the angry and upset reactions of fans on Sehwag calling Anderson as “buzurg”:
