London, February 25: US President Donald Trump’s mispronunciation of Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar’s name went viral on social media and a number of fans and those from the cricketing community have given some hilarious reactions to it.

The latest to join the party is former England captain Michael Vaughan who wondered how Trump would pronounce the name of Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman whenever he visits the country. Donald Trump Mispronounces Sachin Tendulkar’s Name As ‘Soochin’, ICC and Others Brutally Troll US President for Wrong Enunciation.

“Can’t wait for @realDonaldTrump to visit Pakistan & see how he pronounces Fakhar Zaman ..!!!” tweeted Vaughan on Tuesday and earlier in the day he had tweeted, “How are you today Sue Chin @sachin_rt !!!! #DonaldTrumpIndiaVisit”

Speaking at the ‘Namaste Trump’ event at the Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad on Monday, the US President had said: “This is the country, where your people cheer on some of the world’s greatest cricket players from Sachin Tendulkar to Virat Kohli.”

Even the International Cricket Council (ICC) trolled the US President. On its official Twitter handle, the ICC posted a video “changing” Sachin’s name to “Soochin Tendulkar” on their website, captioning the tongue-in-cheek post “Sach- Such- Satch- Sutch- Sooch- Anyone know?”

In the 15-second video clip, the ICC is seen changing Tendulkar’s name in the personal information section to Soo-chin and then saving the changes.
