Born into a Jat family to a grain merchant, the Nawab of Najafgarh, Virender Sehwag took the world by storm and has won tens of millions of heart by his smashing and cruel batting skills. If you have seen him batting, you will agree to the fact that he took birth only to change the dynamics of International Cricket.

Sticking by only one rule and that is to "follow no rule", Sehwag received tremendous support from his fans all around the world. He came like a tide and buried every bowler that came his way down under the sea of fours and sixes. His aura was such that bowlers of the opponent team were forced to make a whole different strategy to tackle his way of playing and get him out before he seizes the glory for the team.
