According to reports, a special session of Parliament is expected to pass a resolution calling India Bharat on Tuesday. Article 1 of the Indian Constitution says that India, i.e. Bharat, shall be a Union of States. This article is likely to change. Virender Sehwag expressed his support for the news in a big way on X (formerly Twitter) as Rohit Sharma announced the squad for the upcoming ICC ODI World Cup 2023.

In this tweet, Virender Sehwag says he agrees with the news that India’s name could be changed to Bharat. He is using #TeamBharat to bring the idea of ​​using the name ‘Bharat’ instead of ‘India’ during the upcoming World Cup.

Sehwag goes on to talk about players like Kohli, Rohit, Bumrah and Jaddu. He says that as fans we should cheer for these players with the spirit of Bharat in our hearts. He thinks the players should also wear ‘Bharat’ T-shirts to show how their identity has changed. The mention of Jay Shah is a big step as Sehwag wants to alert the secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
