Things are heating up as the high voltage encounter between India and Pakistan in the ongoing Champions Trophy is getting closer. From the cricketing fans to former cricketers, everyone is set for the encounter and former Indian opener Virender Sehwag has already issued a warning to Pakistani fans. Sehwag said that India will turn Pakistan into ‘mashed brinjal’ on 4th June. While facing the fiery former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar in a TV show on ABP News, Sehwag was in full form. While Shoaib was busy reminding Sehwag about Pakistan’s past records against India, the former opener responded by saying that he hopes people of Pakistan don’t break their TV sets after losing, instead, he said, they should buy a radio as it is cheaper. This left Akhtar baffled who looked to retaliate with a retort that was different. He said, we have many old Chinese TV sets which don’t work, so we break them.

However, Sehwag was not done yet and the caustic banter did not end there. When Shoaib said India and Pakistan should play at least two series every year as it will help India the most, Sehwag replied by saying BCCI is already the richest board in the world and it’s Pakistan who needs a bilateral series more than anyone. He added that it will help Pakistan earn some money so that it can take care of its players.
