After the immense success of the T20 format, a new league is set to make its debut in international cricket, the T10 league. This will be the world’s first ten overs cricket league. The debut is all set for November in the UK.

Naturally, when promoting a new cricket format, veterans get roped in during the promotion. For the new T10 league, former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag was called in. He posted a tweet for the promotion of the newly formed league to his fans, asking for support. He did get some positive replies but unfortunately, he got roasted.
Many of the fans believe the format will reduce the shine of the sport as the shorter the format the more harmful to the sport it will be. Check out the replies down below to see what the fans have to say:
The @T10LeagueTweets looks stronger than ever with its added teams and ICC/ECB sanctions in place.
World’s first ten overs cricket league ready to roll from 23 November. Show your support to the revolution in cricket! #T10StandsTall #T10league

T10 will finish cricket culture charm quality and every thing #boycottT10
We love cricket not drama.. And 10over cricket is good for tennis ball in local not in international.

T10 league: Cricket is trim down to minimum overs day by day and we are loosing actual standard of cricket.

The destruction of cricket has started by introducing T20 and now the #T10league could be the final nail in the coffin for world cricket.

While there are some who are welcoming this new format, many others aren’t.
