"I want Vada Pavs" – Mayanti Langer Binny tweets of 'honouring' Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma
Mumbai Indians were the winners of the previous edition of the Indian Premier League. They defended the title for the first time in history and lifted their fifth trophy in their IPL journey. The 14th edition of the IPL kick-started with the opening rubber between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
The defending champions kick-started their title defence with a defeat. They came so close to winning the match but in the end, RCB won the game in the last delivery. However, MI still have plenty of matches coming up ahead as they have a great chance to become the first side to win a hat-trick of titles.
Mumbai Indians took on Kolkata Knight Riders in the second game. MI's head to head record over KKR has been well and truly outstanding as they managed to win 21 games out of 27 games. On the contrary, the Knight Riders found it really hard to beat the five-time IPL champions as they won just 6 games.
Mayanti Langer makes a prediction on Twitter; deletes it later
Ahead of the game between MI and KKR, female cricket anchor, Mayanti Langer Binny posted tweets honouring MI captain Rohit Sharma. The anchor took to her official Twitter handle and made a prediction on Mumbai Indians' team score in the first innings.
She wrote that if the defending champions aggregate more than 200, then she wants free Vada Pavs from Swiggy. She also added that one must honour the Hitman Rohit Sharma. "If Mumbai scores more than 200, I want Vada Pavs. Because one must honour the hitman." Her tweet went viral on Twitter.
Meanwhile, her tweet didn't go down well with Rohit Sharma fans as they didn't like the way Mayanti Langer linked Vada Pavs to Rohit Sharma, which has often been used as a meme on the internet. "No offence A disgraceful tweet Imagine body-shaming a guy who represents India has achieved so many things for India Trolling is different this is straight-up hating from a verified account And IMO it ain't funny any more Body shaming someone," a user tweeted.
