Jammu and Kashmir’s all-rounder Parvez Rasool’s debut for India didn’t end up as happy as he would have liked. Not only India lost the match but the off-spinner also found himself amidst a controversy after he was seen standing at ease during the national anthem and chewing gum before the match.

The twitterati was quick to identify his act and called it a disrespect towards the national anthem. Some of them even asked BCCI to take an action against the off-spinner.

People were quick to remind Rasool that if he is representing his nation, he should pay some respect towards the country as well. Here are some twitter reactions:

India went on to lose the match by 7 wickets and Parvez Rasool finished with the figures of 32 for 1 from his 4 overs. It is yet to be seen whether BCCI will ignore this act or take an action against the off-spinner.
