You were in your nappies. Show respect': Twitter blasts Marnus Labuschagne for his reply to Sachin Tendulkar
Australia batter Marnus Labuschagne is facing the wrath of fans on social media after replying to a tweet from Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar.
Tendulkar, the former India batter posted a good luck wish for the Indian women's cricket team good luck for their match against Australia
as the sports made a return to CWG after 24 years – the last time cricket was part of CWG was way back in 1998.
"Wonderful to see cricket back in the Commonwealth Games. Hope this takes our beautiful game to newer audiences.
Best wishes to @BCCIWomen's team for their #CWG22 campaign," Tendulkar had tweeted.
Reacting to the tweet, Labuschagne replied saying "Agreed Sachin. Aus v India is going to be an amazing opener too." And this landed him in hot waters.
Fans felt that by addressing Tendulkar as just "Sachin", Labuschagne was not showing respect to the Indian batting legend
Users were quick to pounce on Labuschagne and slammed the Australia batter for not calling him "Sachin sir". Here are some of the tweets.
