U.S President Donald Trump is facing trolls as he wrongfully pronounced Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli’s names on his ongoing visit to India.
Trump while inaugurating the newly-built World’s largest Stadium in Ahmedabad, he struggled to name them but crowd applauded him for mentioning the star cricketers
“This is the country where your people cheer on some of the world’s greatest cricket players from Soo-chin Tendul-kerrr to Virot Ko-lee,” Trump said.
However, the International Cricket Council (ICC) reacted and took a jibe at Trump’s hilarious pronunciation.

Not just ICC, former cricketers, and Twitteratis were also amazed by this.

“Something about Donald Trump’s pronunciation of Sachin Tendulkar tells me he isn’t a huge cricket fan,” cricket fan wrote.

It must be noted that Ahmedabad’s Sardar Patel Stadium is now the World’s largest cricket stadium having a record capacity of 110,000. The previous record was with Australia’s Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
