Former India opener Virender Sehwag was slammed by Twitterati for calling Rohit Sharma 'Vada Pav' in his post-match review of Mumbai Indians (MI) and Chennai Super Kings' (CSK) match.

Sehwag also used the term 'Samosa Pav' for Saurabh Tiwary who had replaced the injured Rohit against CSK. It was a dig at their weight and physique and fitness, which their fans took offense to.
