Just after the videos got viral a section of the Indian fans first came into the wicketkeeper's batsman's support and slammed the troll makes.

A huge uproar took place in several social media platforms were fans claimed that speaking correct English is not his job. His job is to play cricket which he has performed brilliantly so far and guided his team to the final.

Now, legendary Indian batsman Sehwag too have joined the bandwagon of backing Sarfraz. The cricketer from his official Twitter handle tweeted, "Criticizing Sarfaraz for not speaking English is insane.His job is to play&he has done brilliantly 2 take Pak in finals #StopColonialMindset."

Sehwag was spot on in backing the Pakistan skipper. Sarfraz single-handedly won their last group stage match against Sri Lanka to qualify for the semis. He has managed his not so strong side very well and inspired them to reach the final of the tournament.
