Watch: Parvez Rasool attracts controversy by chewing gum during National Anthem


Playing for the Indian team after almost two-and-a-half years, Parvez Rasool must have thought of having a great outing for the Men in Blue but instead he got slammed on social media platforms for a particular act of callousness.

While the national anthems of India and England were being played before the start of the first T20 in Kanpur on Thursday, the Kashmiri off-spinner was seen chewing a gum and the Twitterati lost their cool. Many thought it was a disrespect to the national anthems and he shouldn’t have kept munching his gum.
