The witty and sarcastic former India skipper Virender Sehwag has a knack to troll players on a daily basis and this time the swashbuckler took a dig at India's 'baby face' Parthiv Patel. The wicket-keeper who was recalled for the Indian Test squad that faces South Africa in a three-match series had an epic comeback for Sehwag's jibe at him and here's how the story unfolds.
Sehwag had uploaded a picture on twitter where two 'aloo parathas' were made to the resemblance of wicket-keeping gloves. The caption states, 'नई नवेली दुल्हन आयीz पति बोला अपने हाथ की रोटी बना के खिलाओ ।' which translates to 'newlywed bride asks husband to make chapattis for her'. The witty former cricketer immediately turned his attention to Parthiv and asks him 'Nikke @parthiv9, Bhai wicket keeping gloves hain wahaan ya bhejoon !' which translates to 'Pal Parthiv, I have the wicket-keeping gloves so should I send them to you!'

Sehwag's dig at the wicket-keeper was soon dignified with a hilarious response which drew laughs and applause from the cricket fans.
Parthiv's response was ' Idhar meri perfect size wale bahut gloves le ke aaya hu.. ise udhar hi rakhe aap..delhi mai thand Badh gayi hai to ghar me kisi ke Kaam aaynege..' which translates to 'I have brought the perfect sized gloves with me here, keep the gloves with yourself as Delhi is experiencing a cold weather and will be useful to you'.

This reply left all the cricket fans in splits.
Parthiv who is currently in the Test squad for the three-match series against South Africa, is yet to play as he plays second fiddle to keeper Wriddhiman Saha who is the first preference choice after MS Dhoni retired from Test cricket.
India play the second Test at the Centurion on January 13.
