In the 21st century there have been 6 ODI world cups.— Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) November 11, 2023
In 6 attempts, only once in 2007 did we not qualify for the semi-finals and have qualified in 5 of the last 6 World cups. On the other hand only once have Pakistan qualified for the semis in 6 attempts in 2011.

A notable aspect of Sehwag's response was his emphasis on reciprocal behavior. He asserted that good conduct deserves positive treatment, while inappropriate behavior invites a fitting response.
The controversy originated from Sehwag's 'Bye Bye Pakistan' message, a prediction that Pakistan would face an early exit from the tournament. The timing and tone of the post added fuel to an already intense cricketing rivalry.
As Pakistan grapples with the challenge of securing a spot in the semifinals, Sehwag's words added a layer of tension to the unfolding drama.
In conclusion, Sehwag's unapologetic stance and his sharp response to critics have added spice to the World Cup narrative, further intensifying the rivalry between the two cricketing nations.
As the tournament progresses, the off-field drama, alongside the on-field action, continues to captivate cricket enthusiasts, making this World Cup one for the history books.">
