The ICC World Cup’s most-awaited match between India and Pakistan saw a lot of controversy around it. After defeating Pakistan in the 16th June match, the Pakistani team faced backlash for underperforming not just from their country fans but also cricket enthusiasts from across the globe.
Ranveer Singh, who is in the cricket mode these days following the prep for his upcoming film ’83, based on the 1983 World Cup, was also present at the event. In a guest appearance, the actor had also done commentary during the match.
The actor seemed to be having the time of his life as he shared pictures on Twitter with numerous cricketers. In one of those, alongside Hardik Pandya, he captioned ” Eat. Sleep, Dominate. Repeat. The name is Hardik. Hardik Pandya. @hardikpandya7 ma boi #unstoppable.”
Posted on Sunday, the post recently got a response from WWE champion Brock Lesnar’s onscreen manager Paul Heyman. Heyman wrote back that he might take up litigation in response to the post for a copyright issue as Heyman has been using the catchphrase “Eat Sleep CONQUER Repeat” to highlight the star power of his client Brock Lesnar ever since he ended The Undertaker’s unbeaten streak at WrestleMania in 2014.
ARE YOU F’N KIDDING ME???????????

After MS Dhoni’s performance in the third ODI series against Australia in January 2019, the ICC World Cup’s official Twitter handle praised Dhoni using the same catchphrase with a post: “Eat. Sleep. Finish games. Repeat. Life as @msdhoni”.
At that point also, Heyman had sent a message to the ICC asking for royalties for using the phrase while congratulating Dhoni for his performance.
My most (in)sincere compliments to @cricketworldcup for promoting the amazing @msdhoni by paraphrasing my mantra for @WWE #UniversalChampion @BrockLesnar #EatSleepConquerRepeat. Our royalties may be paid in cash, check, stock or cryptocurrency. https://t.co/sGtIALzso1
