Laxmanan Sivaramakrishnan once commented, 'The bowler might be good, but when Sehwag thinks he wants to hit, God forbid anyone standing in the way.' This one power shot is enough to describe the man who is known to be the most destructive player of the Indian Cricket team. The 'Nawab Of Najafgarh' aka Virender Sehwag, was India's greatest match winner in Test Cricket.
The right-handed batsman and also a part-time right-arm off spin bowler holds multiple records to his name, the fastest triple century maker and also the fastest 250 run maker being a few of them. Though, he retired from all forms of International Cricket on October 20, 2015; his second innings are no less in making him known amongst the people. Yes, Viru now rules Twitter with his idiosyncratic commentary and exceptional humour on many of the global and common issues. He is a Twitter star now, as his tweets are sarcastic and witty at the same time.
On his birthday, his account flooded with numerous wishes and his replies were as always Epic! Have a look at some of his quirky responses.
Brett Lee's this comment depicts the power of this man. Turned 37 today, Sehwag is known to have more than 17,000 International runs on the board.
Being the most reliable person in Test Cricket and also the One-day Internationals. When Sehwag used to enter the field even the players like Shoaib Akhtar, Chaminda Vaas, and Dale Steyn got terrified.
Have a look at his 'sincere' wishes to the present Indian coach, Anil Kumble.
His humour as he takes a dig at the New Zealand cricketer is simply awesome- 'O Ram Ji'. Haha!
They expected their favourite cricketer to handle all the bouncers and gift the well-wishers, his perfect responses. And yes, he didn't disappoint them in any ways.
That is why he emphasised it- 'Raina Hai Tere Dil Mein.' Got it?
I mean, he knows everything better!
Look at his rhymes. Actually, 'spontaneous rhymes'.
I am a fan of Viru!
Sehwag, you are an absolute chucklesome person. Your cricket journey has been an inspiration, and your tweets are equivalent 'inspiration' as well.
We wish you a very Happy Birthday, Viru.
