Fake news has been one of the most talked about topics all across the world and Indian media is no different. There are some online portals, which are known for spreading rumors that are simply impossible.
As you may know that Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir announced his retirements from all forms of International crickets. However, soon news about him joining the politics started floating around. The story was viral for days just recently. Former Indian opener gave clarification on the rumors calling it completely untrue.
A similar thing has happened to another legendary cricketer. The cricketer we are talking about is none other than former explosive batsman Virender Sehwag. A news portal took to Twitter and shared a piece of news that Sehwag will contest election from Rohtak on BJP ticket.
Former Indian opener took to Twitter to share his reactions and called the news fake. He slammed the news portal in the most savage way possible. He actually took viral 10-year challenge meme by replacing 10 with 5. Sehwag shared two pictures and wrote,
“Some things never change, like this Rumour. Same in 2014, and no innovation even in Rumour in 2019. Not interested then, not interested now. #BaatKhatam#5YearChallenge”
This is What Sehwag Tweeted:

Ekdum right decision Viru bhaiya. You have only your fans and well-wishers till now, no one hates you, but if you enter politics you'll produce some enemies and haters.
