  1. During his playing days, Virender Sehwag was undeniably a force to be reckoned with. His unorthodox batting technique allowed him to hammer the opposition bowlers all around the park. And, even after calling time on his career, Sehwag continues to be a dominant force on social media with his wit and humour. But, while he may have retired from international cricket, Sehwag clearly hasn't forgotten the art of batting. His genius with the willow was once again on full display during the unique Ice Cricket tournament in Switzerland. Taking on Shahid Afridi-led Royals XI, the 'Nawab of Najafgarh' turned back the clock and took the fans to his yesteryears where he once reigned supreme. Despite the bone-chilling conditions in the backdrop of breathtaking Alpine range in the resort town of St Moritz, the 39-year-old created a unique record of scoring the first four and six of the first of its kind tournament. And, if that wasn't enough, Sehwag went on to etch his name in the history books as the first-ever cricketer to score a fifty in the Ice Cricket tournament. There was a reason why 90's people used to say - "Sehwag ki batting dekh kar chalte hain" @virendersehwag ðªðª#IceCricket pic.twitter.com/i1j41KezwD — Prashant Pareek (@prashan235) February 8, 2018 After deciding to bat first, Palace Diamonds got off to a roaring start, following a flabbergasting rendition of masterful strokeplay by their captain Sehwag who smashed a 31-ball 62 including four majestic fours and five towering sixes. In the end, it was his old nemesis Shoaib Akhtar who put an end to Sehwag's blazing innings. Hathiyar chhode hain ,chalana nahi bhoole hain :) Great fun on the ice. pic.twitter.com/V1bjFATGnI — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) February 8, 2018 Following his outing in temperatures below zero degrees, Sehwag took to Twitter and posted a brilliant one-liner about his knock. "Hathiyar chhode hain ,chalana nahi bhoole hain :) Great fun on the ice," he tweeted. @virendersehwag .. kya baat kaha Viru... — Sourav Ganguly (@SGanguly99) February 8, 2018 The post garnered a massive response from the fans and it even evoked a response from Sourav Ganguly. Impressed with Viru's comment, Ganguly replied: "kya baat kaha Viru". Here's what the twitterverse had to say after witnessing Sehwag back in action: Kya baat hai Paji..sher toh sher hai. Shikar karna nahi bhulega — Vasim Kadri (@KadriVasim) February 8, 2018 Aap kaha bhul sakte ho aap to run rate k bazigar ho — Rohan yadav (@Rohanyadav16) February 8, 2018 Virender Sehwag is a special man. first 4⣠of the tournament first 6⣠of the tournament And first 5â£0⣠of the tournament all are done by him.

  2. Shahid Afridi Royals vs Virender Sehwag Diamonds ll Cricket On Ice 1st Match Full Highlights
  3. Shahid Afridi-led Diamonds will face off against Virender Sehwag-led Royals on ice Cricket legends lock horns with each other today, only this time it?s not any regular pitch but the snowy peaks of the Swiss Alps. Shahid Afridi-led Royals will face off against Virender Sehwag-led Diamonds in a unique two-day event where two matches are set to be played not on ground, but on ice. The event, dubbed ?St Moritz Ice Cricket 2018? and already being hailed as the "best battle of cricket on top of the world", will take place against the serene and breathtaking backdrop of the Swiss mountains in freezing cold temperatures on February 8 and 9. Along with Afridi and Sehwag, the event also features glittering names such as Shoaib Akhtar, Abdul Razzaq, Mahela Jayawardene, Jacques Kallis, Zaheer Khan, Michael Hussey and others. The match will kick off at 4pm (Pakistan time). Speedster Shoaib Akhtar couldn't wait to share his adventures in the snow. Wasim Akram and wife Shaniera are also at the venue to join in the fun. "From Shalwar Kameez to Thermals & Skiis!.." Shaniera tweeted from the altitude. Sri Lanka's Jayawardene shared the serenity of the mountains in an Instagram post. Squads Shahid Afridi's Royals XI: Shahid Afridi (Pakistan), Shoaib Akhtar (Pakistan), Abdul Razzaq (Pakistan), Jacques Kallis (South Africa), Graeme Smith (South Africa), Daniel Vettori (New Zealand), Nathan McCullum (New Zealand), Grant Elliott (New Zealand), Monty Panesar (England), Owais Shah (England), Matt Prior (England), Aidan Andrews (Switzerland) Virender Sehwag's Diamonds XI: Virender Sehwag (India), Zaheer Khan (India), Mohammad Kaif (India), Ajit Agarkar (India), Mahela Jayawardene (Sri Lanka), Lasith Malinga (Sri Lanka), Tillakaratne Dilshan (Sri Lanka), Michael Hussey (Australia), Andrew Symonds (Australia), Mithun Manhas (India), Ramesh Powar (India), Rohan Jain (Switzerland)
  4. After taking a 1-0 lead in the six-match One-Day International (ODI) series, the Indian cricket team once again proved why they are one of the most ruthless sides in limited-overs cricket following their nine-wicket triumph in the second match against South Africa. Opting to bat first, the Indian wrist spinners bamboozled the out-of-sorts Proteas, restricting them to a lowly total of 118 runs. In reply, Shikhar Dhawan (51*) Virat Kohli (46) ensured India notched up their target with nine wickets and 177 balls to spare. But, despite India's heroics, something else grabbed all the limelight. With India just two runs short of their target in Centurion, the fans were left bemused after umpires decided to call lunch. Despite the result being a foregone conclusion, play stopped for about 40 minutes and the Centurion crowd had thinned out considerably before the game resumed. Cricket is bloody bonkers ... Lunch break taken with 2 runs required for Victory ... Surely common sense comes into play !!!!!!!!! #SAvsIND — Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) February 4, 2018 Echoing similar sentiments, Virender Sehwag aka 'Troll King' took a dig at the on-field umpires in the way he knows best. Taking to Twitter, the former Indian opener compared the match officials with the employees of Indian Public Sector Undertaking (PSU) banks. Umpires treating Indian batsmen like PSU Bank treat customers. Lunch ke baad aana #INDvSA — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) February 4, 2018 “Umpires treating Indian batsmen like PSU Bank treat customers. Lunch ke baad aana,” Sehwag tweeted after witnessing this bizarre scene. Since then, his tweet has been shared more than seven thousand times. Sehwag's tweet did leave his fans in splits following his uncanny comparison, but it also irked a few PSU bank employees who didn't shy away from hitting back at the 'Nawab of Najafgarh'. Sir....bura maan Gaya main....I alwez..alwezzzz. saw ur matches @ Mohali....nd I'm a PSU bank officer...nd have alwez treated customers to their expectations...ðð — atul thakur (@atulthakur22) February 4, 2018 "Sir....bura maan Gaya main....I alwez..alwezzzz. saw ur matches @ Mohali....nd I'm a PSU bank officer...nd have alwez treated customers to their expectations," a PSU bank employee replied on Twitter. Bura na maan bhai. Tu exception hai. Most Sarkaari banks , infact most sarkaari departments don't care for the common man. The attitude is like Maai Baap , as if they are doing a favour if they do their job. https://t.co/CRfkuSQCEb — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) February 5, 2018 Fuelling the friendly banter, Sehwag replied: "Bura na maan bhai. Tu exception hai. Most Sarkaari banks , infact most sarkaari departments don't care for the common man. The attitude is like Maai Baap , as if they are doing a favour if they do their job". I work in PSU bank. We never ask our customers to come after lunchtime. — reshmi aneesh (@reshmikarottu) February 5, 2018 Another PSU bank employee didn't take Viru's words kindly before tweeting: "I work in PSU bank. We never ask our customers to come after lunchtime". You are also an exception. Apart from lunch most others also have the excuse of server kharaab, printer nahi chal raha. Unfortunately hasn't changed in most sarkaari departments https://t.co/faeYzdyRBy — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) February 5, 2018 Replying to her, Sehwag also labelled her as an exception and said: "You are also an exception. Apart from lunch most others also have the excuse of server kharaab, printer nahi chal raha. Unfortunately hasn't changed in most sarkaari departments".
  5. The 'Virushka' reception is grander and bigger than any Bollywood blockbuster movie this year.

  6. During his playing days, Virender Sehwag never cared about the match situation, the opposition or even the bowler at the other end. All he cared about was smashing the ball hard enough so that it sailed over the ropes. He always believed in scoring big and fast. And, most of the time, the Nawab of Najafgarh pretty much managed to do that. Almost five years after his retirement, Sehwag gave his fans something to cheer for when he returned to the cricket field in the highly-anticipated T10 League tournament. But, while many would have thought the former Indian cricketer would go hammer and tongs, the right-hander was undone by another veteran star without even opening his account. Pretty special pic in the context of regional politics - cricket transcending boundaries.. let's try to keep it this way...#T10League pic.twitter.com/cw7EFVdGC2 — Ramiz Raja (@iramizraja) December 14, 2017 Leading the Maratha Arabians, Sehwag failed to lift his team to victory and eventually lost against the Pakhtoons by 25 runs. While Sehwag and his team witnessed a nightmare on the opening night of the 10-over-a-side tournament, the Shahid Afridi-led Pakhtoons revelled in the heroics of their captain. Shahid Afridi First Ever Hat-Trick In #T10 #Cricket League 2017 | Maratha Arabians vs #Pakhtoons | #Sharjah Cricket Stadium | #Pakistan #Australia #PakhtoonTeam #India #Bangladesh #England #SouthAfrica #NewZealand #Zimbabwe #Westindies #SriLanka #T10CricketLeague #Pakistani pic.twitter.com/gXhR26BUqu — Akhunzada Khan (@PakistaniOnline) December 15, 2017 Afridi, who called time on his international career in 2016, didn't just enthral his fans by returning to the pitch, but he did so in style. The former Pakistani cricketer claimed a brilliant hat-trick in his first three balls in the tournament. Coming into the attack in the sixth over, the 37-year-old got Rilee Rossouw out caught at wide long-on to claim his first scalp of the game. On the very next delivery, he rapped Dwayne Bravo on the pads right in front of the stumps to make it two for two. On a hat-trick, Afridi faced fierce Sehwag but even he was unable to read the in-dipping slider before walking back into the hut with a duck against his name. Shahid Afridi hat-trick with his first three balls in T10. Rossouw, Dwayne Bravo, Sehwag. Obviously — Paul Radley (@PaulRadley) December 14, 2017 Alex Hales fought a lone battle for the Maratha Arabians with an unbeaten 57 off 26 balls but with only one other batsman from his team reaching the two-figure mark, the England batsman couldn't save his team who were reduced to just 96/7 in 10 overs. It's almost 2018 and Shahid Afridi is still the highlight of the night.. Lots of love @SAfridiOfficial.. Never change.. â¤ï¸ — Kukkoo (@LeenaAlvi) December 14, 2017 Adjudged Man of the Match for his brilliant performance, Afridi was quizzed by Ramiz Raja during the presentation ceremony on creating the magic even at this age. "What do you mean still performing at this age, I am still young," said Afridi with a chuckle. Ever since T10 was announced there was a great buzz and anticipation around how the now -new shortest form of the game would be received ! Change being the only constant, we may be entering a new era of entertainment. Btw I still love test cricket ð — Ramiz Raja (@iramizraja) December 15, 2017 Despite the short format of the games, the smash-and-grab style tournament seems to have ignited some decent fanfare. Around 11,000 of the 14,500 seats at the Sharjah Cricket stadium were filled with fans who were eager and later elated to see the likes of Afridi and Sehwag mark their return to cricket.
  7. It's been over four years since one of India's most destructive batsmen, Virender Sehwag, bowed out of international cricket. But after hammering opposition bowlers all around the park, the former Indian opener seems to have found a new pitch as he continues to enthral his fans with his ever-entertaining wit off the field. From unique birthday wishes or hilarious comparisons, Sehwag has continued to get the better of the opposition with a potent mix of fun, puns, sarcasm and also, what is now being labelled as, just simple 'Sehwagasm'. On 12 December, the so-called Sehwagasm once again reigned supreme on social media after the former Indian opener tweeted his birthday wishes to fellow countryman Yuvraj Singh, who is celebrating his 36th birthday today. A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T W X Y Z , you will find in plenty. But UV is only one rare one. Happy Birthday dear friend @YUVSTRONG12 . May your fight continue to inspire many. pic.twitter.com/hV06ByVZBW — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) December 12, 2017 Taking to Twitter, Sehwag tweeted: "A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T W X Y Z, you will find in plenty. But UV is only one rare one. Happy Birthday dear friend @YUVSTRONG12. May your fight continue to inspire many". While Sehwag got full marks for being innovative, other Indian stars highlighted Yuvi's fighting spirit and never-say-die attitude.

  8. Shoaib Akhtar and Virender Sehwag - one of cricket's best-remembered rivalries Legendary cricketers and even fiercer rivals, Shoaib Akhtar and Virender Sehwag will reignite memories of the days gone by when they meet once again for a game of cricket in the frozen Swiss Alps. The much-awaited showdown between the ?Rawalpindi Express? and the batting great will take place on a frozen lake in the resort town of St. Moritz, Switzerland, with the spectacular Swiss Alps in the backdrop. Two Twenty20 exhibition matches are set to be played on February 8 and 9 next year, starring, alongside Akhtar and Sehwag, stars such as Mahela Jayawardene, Lasith Malinga, Michael Hussey, Graeme Smith, Jacques Kallis, Daniel Vettori, Nathan McCullum, Grant Elliott, Mohammad Kaif, Monty Panesar and Owais Shah. Shoaib Akhtar reacts to Virender Sehwag's wicket/File photo ?I never thought playing cricket on ice was possible but now that it is happening, I wanted to experience it. It won?t be serious cricket but it would still be a challenge to play on ice,? Sehwag, who was present at the launch event, was quoted in Indian media. Sehwag, aka ?Viru?, has quite a few exhibition matches to his name. He played in the MCL in Dubai in 2016 and was also part of Cricket All Stars, which was played in the USA two years ago. Players will use the traditional cricketing gear including the red ball, but will wear sports shoes instead of spikes. The Swiss weather is expected to be sunny during the day, but temperatures can dip to as low as -20 degree Celsius. The matches will be played on matting pitch.
  9. As kids, we were often told that “when in Rome, do as the Romans do!” And that's exactly what Kiwi batting monster Ross Taylor did. How else can one justify his impeccable Hindi speaking skills and epic sarcasm? Until now there was just one name that popped up in our heads whenever someone mentioned Twitter's king of sass- Virender Sehwag. But, now our faith is shaking because Viru Paji has found a tough competition in Taylor, who is putting his new found love for Hindi to some good use. © Twitter Indulging in an epic wordplay, Sehwag called Ross 'Darji Ji' last month, kicking off a hilarious twitter battle with Ross hitting back with an equally witty response. Fast forward to the present and before Sehwag could even realize, Ross showed who the real boss is. Taking his Twitter conversation with Sehwag to another level, Ross shared a picture of him sitting in front of a closed tailoring shop. More than the picture, it was Taylor's caption that won both Sehwag and his fans' hearts. He wrote, “@virendersehwag #Rajkot mein match k baad, #darji (Tailor) ki dukaan band. Agli silai #Trivandrum mein hogi…Zaroor Aana.” (Burnnnn!) @virendersehwag #Rajkot mein match k baad, #darji (Tailor) Ki dukaan band. Agli silai #Trivandrum mein hogi... Zaroor Aana. #India #IndvNZ A post shared by Ross Taylor (@rossltaylor3) on Nov 5, 2017 at 2:30am PST Just like Taylor's fans, Sehwag too was left dumbfound with this epic response. But, when it comes to Sehwag, how can one expect a bland or generic response? He went a notch higher and brought Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) in picture by asking them if Taylor is eligible for an Aadhaar Card for “such wonderful Hindi skills.” Highly impressed by you @RossLTaylor . @UIDAI , can he be eligible for an Aadhaar Card for such wonderful Hindi skills. https://t.co/zm3YXJdhk2 — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) 6 November 2017 While Sehwag and Taylor were busy with their funny battle of words, it was UIDAI that took home the last piece of cake. Pls see this pic.twitter.com/O9LPmVn3iD — Aadhaar (@UIDAI) 6 November 2017 So far, the series is leveled at 1-1. India won the first T20 by 53 runs and in the second match that took place in Rajkot last Saturday New Zealand won by 40 runs. Clearly, with a tie between both sides, all eyes are now set on the series decider that will take place tomorrow in Thiruvananthapuram. Well, now that Ross has hinted that the Kiwis won't go easy on Team India tomorrow, we can't wait for Sehwag's post-match comments.
  10. If you ever search for Twitter and God simultaneously, chances are the first name to top your search list will be Virender Sehwag, because that's how savage and badass he is when it comes to putting the social media to good use. However, after reading New Zealand cricketer Ross Taylor's tweet, we feel Viru Paji's crown is now in danger. On one hand where the Kiwis gave Team India a hard time on field and won the match by 6 wickets, Viru Paji and Ross Taylor seemed to be playing a separate league altogether off the field and we loved the latter battle more. It won't be a surprise if you heard more cheers on Twitter than at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium. Sehwag is known for taking hilarious digs at anything and everything under the sun and that's exactly what he did after New Zealand's victory. He tweeted to Ross Taylor addressing him as 'Darji ji' (for those who didn't get the pun, go and translate 'tailor' in Hindi). Well played @RossLTaylor Darji ji . Great effort after handling the pressure of Diwali orders .#indvsnz — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) October 22, 2017 But, like a true boss, Ross quickly responded to the tweet and stunned both Sehwag and his fans with his savagery and wit. More than anything, it's his impeccable Hindi that's winning our hearts. Thanks @virendersehwag bhai agli Baar Apna order time pe Bhej dena so Mai Apko agli Diwali ke pehle deliver kardunga ....happy Diwali — Ross Taylor (@RossLTaylor) October 23, 2017 Ross Taylor was in his best form possible at the first ODI with India and together with Tom Lather he ensured the team's victory, while chasing the 281-run target.

  11. If you ever search for Twitter and God simultaneously, chances are the first name to top your search list will be Virender Sehwag, because that's how savage and badass he is when it comes to putting the social media to good use. However, after reading New Zealand cricketer Ross Taylor's tweet, we feel Viru Paji's crown is now in danger. On one hand where the Kiwis gave Team India a hard time on field and won the match by 6 wickets, Viru Paji and Ross Taylor seemed to be playing a separate league altogether off the field and we loved the latter battle more. It won't be a surprise if you heard more cheers on Twitter than at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium. Sehwag is known for taking hilarious digs at anything and everything under the sun and that's exactly what he did after New Zealand's victory. He tweeted to Ross Taylor addressing him as 'Darji ji' (for those who didn't get the pun, go and translate 'tailor' in Hindi). Well played @RossLTaylor Darji ji . Great effort after handling the pressure of Diwali orders .#indvsnz — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) October 22, 2017 But, like a true boss, Ross quickly responded to the tweet and stunned both Sehwag and his fans with his savagery and wit. More than anything, it's his impeccable Hindi that's winning our hearts. Thanks @virendersehwag bhai agli Baar Apna order time pe Bhej dena so Mai Apko agli Diwali ke pehle deliver kardunga ....happy Diwali — Ross Taylor (@RossLTaylor) October 23, 2017 Ross Taylor was in his best form possible at the first ODI with India and together with Tom Lather he ensured the team's victory, while chasing the 281-run target. But, Viru Paji being Viru Paji didn't end the banter there and acknowledged that if there's anyone who can give a tough competition to him on Twitter, Taylor is the best opponent he got.

  12. Once among the most feared opening pairs in the world, Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag had an adorable banter on the latter?s 39th birthday. Tendulkar wished his former opening partner while pointing out his gung-ho attitude on the field. ?Happy birthday, viru! have a great start to the new year. you?ve always done ulta of what i have told you on field. so here?s one from me?? Tendulkar tweeted in a message written upside down. Sehwag, not one to be left behind in Twitter wars, quickly replied: ?Thank you God ji.. Uparwala sab dekh raha hai, yeh to suna tha, par aaj samajh aaya, woh neeche waalon ke liye likhta kaise hai !? Other teammates also took to Twitter to wish ?Viru? a very happy birthday.
  13. It's been over four years since one of India's most destructive batsmen, Virender Sehwag, bowed out of international cricket. But after hammering the opposition bowlers all around the park, the former Indian opener seems to have found a new pitch as he continues to enthrall his fans with his ever-entertaining wit off the field. From unique birthday wishes or hilarious comparisons, Sehwag has continued to get the better of the opposition with a potent mix of fun, puns, sarcasm and also, what is now being labelled as, just simple 'Sehwagasm'. But, on 20 October, while the former Indian cricketer was celebrating his 39th birthday, Twitterati had their own plans for the 'Nawab of Najafgarh'. Taking cue from Sehwag's very own book of wit and humour, celebrities, cricket bigwigs and fans all came together to wish the batting legend in their own unique way. Amongst numerous wishes, tweets from photographer Atul Kasbekar and Sachin Tendulkar trumped others and drew loudest cheers on the micro-blogging website. Happy birthday @virendersehwag The only Indian batsman who could be in the film #300 and in the sequel...!!! ð¥ððð®ð³ pic.twitter.com/mMUezA9Dju — atul kasbekar (@atulkasbekar) October 20, 2017 "Happy birthday @virendersehwag. The only Indian batsman who could be in the film #300 and in the sequel," Kasbekar tweeted. While Kasbekar introduced everyone to Viru's Spartan avatar, Tendulkar highlighted his former teammate's gung-ho attitude in his unique tweet. .Çɯ ɯoÉ¹É Çuo s,ÇɹÇÉ¥ os Ëðp×ÇÄ±É uo noÊ p×oÊ ÇÊÉÉ¥ ı ÊÉÉ¥Ê Éo ÉÊ×n Çuop sÊÉÊ×É ÇÊ,noÊ ËɹÉÇÊ ÊÇu ÇÉ¥Ê oÊ ÊɹÉÊs ÊÉÇÉ¹Æ É ÇÊÉÉ¥ ¡nÉ¹Ä±Ê 'ÊÉpÉ¥Êɹıq ÊddÉÉ¥ pic.twitter.com/L1XTzhzoiU — sachin tendulkar (@sachin_rt) October 20, 2017 “Happy birthday, viru! have a great start to the new year. you've always done ulta of what i have told you on field. so here's one from me?” said Tendulkar in his tweet where every word in the sentence was turned upside down. Apart from Kasbekar and Tendulkar, here's a look at how others wished Viru on his 39th birthday: Happy birthday @virendersehwag most destructive opening batsmen in history of cricket. Stay blessed Viru Bhai. Keep entertaining. #Legend pic.twitter.com/eLFTy2E0Kp — Ishant Sharma (@ImIshant) October 20, 2017 17,253 international runs and one of just two players to score both 300+ in Tests and 200+ in ODIs - Happy Birthday @virendersehwag! pic.twitter.com/Hq2R18OTqi — ICC (@ICC) October 20, 2017 Viru Bhai, you keep getting edgier day by day and we love it.

  14. It's been over four years since one of India's most destructive batsmen, Virender Sehwag, bowed out of international cricket. But after hammering the opposition bowlers all around the park, the former Indian opener seems to have found a new pitch as he continues to enthrall his fans with his ever-entertaining wit off the field. From unique birthday wishes or hilarious comparisons, Sehwag has continued to get the better of the opposition with a potent mix of fun, puns, sarcasm and also, what is now being labelled as, just simple 'Sehwagasm'. For a batsman whose fearless batting inspiring us all in his heyday, Sehwag seems to have adopted the same carefree approach on Twitter. And, his recent tweets that summed up his glorious career are a testimony to that. It is not always the words we say, that have the biggest effect. It is usually how we say them. — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) October 6, 2017 Posting on the micro-blogging website, Sehwag tweeted: "It is not always the words we say, that have the biggest effect. It is usually how we say them". Similarly in cricket, it is usually not a poor delivery that has an effect, it is usually how we smash them :) https://t.co/36iCwFHrp5 — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) October 6, 2017 He followed it up with another tweet that read: "Similarly in cricket, it is usually not a poor delivery that has an effect, it is usually how we smash them". Viru constructed an extraordinary career with a relentless quest, and a genius for boundary hitting. His uncomplicated approach - batting is all about scoring as many runs as quickly as possible - showed his sharp and street-smart cricket mind. With minimal footwork and maximum intent, he piled up over 17,000 runs in his international cricket career. What appeared risky to many was merely an opportunity for Sehwag in cricket - something his tweets highlighted perfectly.
  15. Remember Ishant Sharma's crooked face expression that went viral? Virendra Sehwag sure did. Ishant Sharma, one of India's leading fast-bowlers over the past decade, just turned 29. He obviously received a lot of birthday wishes from everyone on Twitter, including his teammates. But there was one particular tweet completely stood out. © Twitter Sehwag is quite well-known for hilarious birthday wishes on social media but he may have outdone himself this time. First, he compared Ishant to Dubai's Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, but no, he didn't just stop there. Sehwag found out a picture that resembled Ishant Sharma, with a similar expression that the pacer made when he tried to mock Australia skipper Steven Smith, during India's Test series against them earlier this year. Happy Birthday @ImIshant . Burj Khalifa ji , found out your trainer. Keep entertaining and stay blessed. pic.twitter.com/Zi1vqIo0N2 — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) September 2, 2017 Just Sehwag being Sehwag.

  16. Back in the 1998 Sharjah ODI series, Sachin Tendulkar slammed back-to-back hundreds (134 and 143 runs) in two crucial matches against Australia to establish his reputation as a modern-day batting great. It was the same series where Tendulkar's batting prowess had also caught Sir Don Bradman's attention and as a result, he was invited by the legend himself, at his Kennington Park home in Adelaide on his 90th birthday. Nineteen years later, on the 109th birth anniversary of the Australian legend, the Master Blaster paid tribute to Bradman with a heartfelt message on the social media. To the one and only.... Happy Birthday to Sir Donald Bradman pic.twitter.com/8XfKssiMn7 — sachin tendulkar (@sachin_rt) August 27, 2017 "To the one and only....Happy Birthday to Sir Donald Bradman," he tweeted alongside a photo of himself with the cricket legend. Bradman, who is regarded as the game's greatest batter and ended his Test career with an average of 99.94, had no qualms in admitting that he saw similarities between his batting style and that of Tendulkar's. Tendulkar was 25 then and had the world at his feat due to his unstoppable willow-wielding heroics. The Little Master is regarded as cricket's most-complete batsman since Bradman. The Australian legend passed away in 2001, but 27 August is still remembered by many fans as the 'Bradman Day'. A day for every cricket lover to remember Sir Don Bradman, the greatest batsman of all times on his birth anniversary.#BradmanJayanti pic.twitter.com/ba9kbW5CP3 — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) August 27, 2017 Apart from Tendulkar, his former Team India mate Virender Sehwag also wished Bradman on his birthday. "A day for every cricket lover to remember Sir Don Bradman, the greatest batsman of all times on his birth anniversary.#BradmanJayanti," he tweeted. According to a book writtent by Roland Perry, “He (Bradman) was most taken in by Tendulkar's technique, compactness and his shot production and had asked his wife to have a look at the Indian as he felt that Tendulkar played like he had. Jessie agreed that they appeared similar.” “Bradman ranked Brian Lara and Tendulkar as the best batsmen in the world and found it difficult to judge who was better. He thought that Tendulkar had a very sound defence while Lara was marginally more aggressive and took more risks. By 2000, he held the view that they were the best in world cricket, but that Tendulkar just pipped Lara as the world's number one,” the book added.
  17. After the controversial fall out between Virat Kohli and Anil Kumble led to the latter's resignation from the post of the head coach of the Indian cricket team, Ravi Shastri was touted to be the frontrunner for the top job amid adequate backing from the Indian captain himself. But, while Shastri was looked upon as a potential replacement for Kumble, other applicants like Tom Moody and Virender Sehwag, in particular, were expected to give him tough competition. And, as the selection process by the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) got into motion, Sehwag had reportedly leapfrogged Shastri in the race for the top job. BCCL However, after a week of chaos and drama that ensued following interviews of the five candidates, the CAC - comprised of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman - surprisingly picked Shastri to call the shots in the Indian dressing room as head coach. So, what really happened to Sehwag? How did he missed the boat? Sehwag, a fan favourite, had Kohli's complete backing and would've been a frontrunner to grab the role if not for certain conditions. One of the five candidates to apply for the job, Sehwag's presentation during his personal meeting with the CAC was the third most impressive after Shastri and Moody. But, according to media reports, the Nawab of Najafgarh had initiated a lot of groundwork with the Indian camp before it eventually boiled down to the personal interview in Mumbai. Twitter/@IPL "After his stint as mentor of Kings XI Punjab, Viru was growing more confident by the day that he had the potential required to work at a higher level in a similar capacity. It was then that a senior BCCI official asked him to apply (for the role of India coach) if he could make up his mind," a senior official was quoted as saying by the TOI. Acting on the advice, Sehwag approached Kohli to get a feel of things. Since both Sehwag and Kohli rose through the ranks in the domestic circuit while playing for Delhi, the duo could've turned their familiarity with each other into a professional relationship. But it was not to be. Sehwag's proposal to bring along with him a team of support staff including physiotherapist Amit Tyagi and Kings XI Punjab assistant coach Mithun Manhas apparently turned out to be the deal-breaker. Reacting to his conditions, Kohli reportedly told Sehwag that he had reservations as there is a professional set-up in place where the onus is on the CAC to take those calls. BCCL It is here that Shastri managed to become the front-runner, considering he was willing to have a more inclusive approach as far as he, the skipper and the team members were concerned. "The CAC did a fair job in assessing all candidates and came with the best possible decision," the report quoted a source. "What went in Shastri's favour was also the fact that he understood the importance of the work ethic put in place by the existing support staff members who have worked with the team for close to three years," the source added. While Shastri will be busy formulating the policies to improve India's success in international cricket, Sehwag, who came so close to being the head coach, decided to to take a breather and went for a holiday in Canada. Chilling in Canada #traveldiaries A post shared by Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) on Jul 11, 2017 at 10:45pm PDT Ever since retiring from the game, Sehwag has kept his association by commentating on a few games. But most of the media attention that comes his way now is garnered through his activity on social media where he has carved a niche for himself with lovely wordplay, trolling others and bringing notice to societal issues.
  18. After External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, if there's anyone who has managed to capture the hearts of people on Twitter, it's the former batsman Virender Sehwag. His witty one-liners, word-play, marriage problems and hilarious comments have always cracked us up and his unparalleled popularity only establishes the same. But when Viru Paji is not cracking jokes or taking jibes at people, he is busy creating awareness about socially relevant issues, which others chose to turn a blind eye towards. Sharing the inspirational story of forest conservationist Jadav Payeng, Sehwag took to Twitter to appreciate the incredible efforts of the guy who is known as the ‘Forest Man of India'. Have you heard of this incredible man, Jadav Payeng ,the Forest Man of India ? Almost 4 decades ago,as a teenager,he started planting Bamboo pic.twitter.com/JI7XxGfMLn — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) 2 July 2017 Sehwag also lauded this man for single-handedly carving out a 1360 acre forest, which is now home to tigers, rhinoceros and deer, to name a few. Payeng started planting bamboo as a teenager and since the past 4 decades, he has been working dedicatedly towards the betterment of the environment. In an area that was washed away with floods,he has single handedly carved a 1360 acre forest that is now home to tigers,rhinoceros,deers etc pic.twitter.com/CG3me1W9Ww — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) 2 July 2017 He further said, “Salute to the spirit of people like Payeng, who despite adverse situations sacrifice so much to save the environment.” Salute to the spirit of people like Payeng,who despite adverse situations sacrifice so much to save the environment 🙏 — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) 2 July 2017 After Sehwag shared Payeng's inspirational story, Twitterati couldn't hold in their emotions and started showering compliments and praises for both Payeng and Sehwag.

  19. The ongoing ICC Champions Trophy has already witnessed a few gruelling encounters ahead of the crucial semi-finals stage. But, while the eight nations are engrossed in the battle to lift the coveted trophy, an off-the-field battle between Virender Sehwag and Rashid Latif has become the talk of the town. And, the war of words has now been joined by Manoj Tiwary. The out of favour Indian cricketer lashed out at the former Pakistani wicket-keeper over his offensive comments towards Sehwag. After India's emphatic win over arch-rivals Pakistan, Latif posted a video on Facebook where he was seen lashing out at the former Indian opener. It all began when Sehwag, known for his quirky words and uncanny humour, tweeted his views about India beating Pakistan in the Champions Trophy recently. Pote ke baad Bete. Koi baat nahi Beta, Well tried ! Congratulations Bharat !#BaapBaapHotaHai #INDvPAK — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) June 4, 2017 "Pote ke baad Bete. Koi baat nahi Beta, Well tried ! Congratulations Bharat !#BaapBaapHotaHai #INDvPAK," Sehwag had tweeted. Rashid Latif: Special Response to Sehwag pic.twitter.com/gNwvltnl7L — ZEE🇵🇰 ⚽️ (@iPakistaniCule) June 8, 2017 Latif, however, who has captained Pakistan in the past did not take too kindly to Sehwag's tweet, and posted a 15-min long message not only criticising Sehwag over his remarks but even intruding in uncharted territory questioning India's existence and going as far as saying that some of their historical monuments were an act of charity from Pakistan. The rant has gone viral since and Latif has received flak over his comments. A meaningful silence is always better than meaningless words. — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) June 9, 2017 In what looked like a subtle and more mature response to Latif, Sehwag tweeted: "A meaningful silence is always better than meaningless words". While Sehwag used his words carefully, Tiwary was not the one to let Latif's rant go unnoticed. The right-handed batsman posted a video of his own in which he lambasted Latif. He also issued a stern warning, stating that he will hit Latif with slippers if he was ever to post such a video again. Dis video message is 4 an idiot called Rashid Latif ( Former Pakistan wicketKeeper ) cont... pic.twitter.com/3dNICZQZ6Y — Manoj Tiwary (@tiwarymanoj) June 11, 2017 "I generally don't upload videos but Rashid Latif's comments forced me to. He has tried to put down a legend like Virender Sehwag and it is a shameful act. So I was wondering what forced him to upload such a video. After thinking long I figured out that all he wants is his 60 seconds of fame - something which he doesn't get nowadays. The language in the video suggests he doesn't have courtesy and the decency to respect other players. He should realise that by posting such a video he has made a big mistake," he said. pic.twitter.com/vXDKaunOCf — Manoj Tiwary (@tiwarymanoj) June 11, 2017 "You should go and check your record and then see Sehwag's record. It will help you understand whom you are talking about. But the problem is you cannot even understand those records as it is in English. You cannot even match Virender Sehwag's numbers. So tell a friend to translate Sehwag's record from English so that you understand how far behind you lag in terms of numbers. It will help you become aware of reality and then think ten times before taking such digs at legendary performers of the game," Tiwary concluded.
  20. For the past few days, there has been a lot of drama surrounding the position of the Indian Cricket team's coach. With Anil Kumble most probably on his way out, the BCCI is looking for more options. As of now, we have no idea who will take the coveted position, but the race for it just got a lot more interesting. Reportedly, Virender Sehwag just sent a two line application to BCCI to put himself in the running. Since Sehwag is the mentor of Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Kings XI Punjab, he is obviously in touch with the current pool of Indian players and has experience working with them as well. The now famous two-line application read, "Mentor and a coach of Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League and has played with all these (Indian) boys before." © Twitter The amusing application has even stunned the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA), who immediately asked him to send in a proper application with a full resume. According to a report of Indian Express, a BCCI source said, “Sehwag being Sehwag has sent his application in two lines. There was no CV attached to it. We had to ask him to send his CV too along with his application. After all, it will be the first time he is set to appear for the interview.” Yes, very well known for trolling on Twitter, Sehwag was just being Sehwag and Twitter did not let it go this time. Here are the most hilarious reactions to his two line application : There were a lot of jokes about what those two lines could be Virender Sehwag just sent two lines résumé to BCCI for Indian Coach Post: - Former Indian Cricketer - Famous on Twitter — Trendulkar (@Trendulkar) June 6, 2017 BCCI: what will be your policy for Indian team as a coach?

  21. Virender Sehwag might not be seen on field, but is certainly a cricketer who is always in the news for the witty comments that he makes and his Twitter banters have kept us entertained. This time also, what was meant to be a googly tweet about a personal opinion maybe, actually backfired. He expressed his concern about how the real issues are traffic in India and not global warming in the US. Global warning ho rahi hogi US mein.Traffic and congestions se India ke pollution par kya farak padta hai ! Concentrate on real issues ! — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) June 2, 2017 Global warming in USA ? Hahahaha global hai bhai. Worldwide — Rohit Kaushik (@rohitkatwit) June 2, 2017 However, words have a way of being formed in perceptions. So when people read this, instead of supporting him, everyone started trolling him. Global warming IS THE REAL ISSUE. Biggest threat to our Planet. In your school, hire qualified Science teachers who don't talk like you. Thx — Priyanka (@autumnrainwish) June 2, 2017 Someone wanted to know what was he high on? Global warming is real not hoax. It affects the planet and India is in Earth not some far away galaxy Paaji. What are you smoking? — Informed Citizen (@AKPandey89) June 2, 2017 People were quick to impart science lessons as well. Not sure what he means by real issues? Does he not know traffic=pollution=GHG emissions=#climatechange. But maybe this is not imp for him — Sunita Narain (@sunitanar) June 2, 2017 You could be a famous cricketer, but if your logic is not in place, this shall continue happening.
  22. It's not easy to follow a sport these days. The rigorous schedule and painful match timings are hard to adhere to for a sports fanatic. And, every once in a while, the loyalty of a fan towards a sport or their favourite team is challenged by the multiple facets of their personal lives. While sports fans usually end up overcoming almost all hindrances coming their way, the biggest threat to their passion is generally posed by their wives and girlfriends. It is a bonding exercise when you end up watching their Cinderella-like sitcoms with them, but when it comes to returning the favour, you're deemed "boring". We all have been there, caught up in the middle, trying to ascertain the repercussions of skipping a dinner date in favour of watching a game with your pals. © Twitter Despite our best efforts, all this while, not many can boast of a formula or a perfect recipe to strike a balance between cricket and their loved ones. And, more often than not, we all tend to give in to the whims and fancies of our better-halves - not always for them - but for our own peace of mind. But, not Virender Sehwag. During his athletic days, the former Indian cricketer had built a reputation as one of the most destructive batsmen in the world. And, even after his retirement, the right-hander continues to reflect his take-no-shit attitude on social media. However, at the end of the day, Sehwag is a married man. So when it comes to dealing with the most obvious, yet traumatic, situation, how does the 'Nawab of Najafgarh' fare? Well, just like on the playing field, Sehwag improvises to hit one out of the park. © BCCL The 38-year-old seems to have derived a cheat code that seems to be working well for him so far. The former Indian opener shared an incident which gave us all an insight into the life of Sehwag - The Married Man. Sehwag and his wife Aarti recently went to watch a movie. And, by the looks of it, the 'King Of Multan' was in no mood to miss out on IPL Qualifier 1. So rather than refusing to go and drawing flak from his wife, Sehwag improvised with the situation. © BCCL While Aarti was busy enjoying the movie, the Delhi lad wasted no time in tuning to some slam-bang T20 action on his smartphone. Sehwag, even shared his photo, where can be seen inside a theatre savouring the thrilling contest between Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) and Mumbai Indians (MI). A happy wife means a happy Life. In a theatre ,watching match as wife watches a movie. Main bhi khush, Biwi bhi khush. Simple joys.#MIvRPS pic.twitter.com/JulwjdzSe8 — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) May 16, 2017 "A happy wife means a happy Life. In a theatre ,watching match as wife watches a movie.

Simple joys," Sehwag tweeted. @prabhjotgill31 @virendersehwag पाजी कमाल है👌 कोई सोच भी नही सकता कि थिएटर में भी #ipl का मज़ा लिया जा सकता है वो भी बीवी के साथ👌👌 कमाल का दिमाग लगाया @virendersehwag पाजी — Manish Sharma (@s7manish) May 16, 2017 Clearly, we'll never come out as winners against our loved ones (especially in this case), and Sehwag's case is a prime example. But, every now and then, a careful improvisation will surely help your cause.
  23. After defeating the likes of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Mumbai Indians (MI) in their last two games, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) was expected to put up yet another stellar show when they locked horns with the Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) on Sunday. The stakes were at an all-time high with the winner between Pune and Punjab going straight into the play-offs. But, what eventually unfolded at the MCA stadium didn't just leave Preity Zinta red-faced, it also evoked a strong response from Punjab mentor and head of cricketing operations Virender Sehwag. © Twitter/IPL Asked to bat first, Punjab couldn't have got off to a worse start than losing Martin Guptill on the very first delivery of their innings. If that wasn't enough, the visitors lost their second wicket after Shardul Thakur dismissed Shaun Marsh in the fourth over. Soon, Punjab found themselves reeling at 32/5 in the powerplay overs. Wriddhiman Saha and Axar Patel tried to hold fort for their team but Dan Christian sent the former back in the hut to spark a shambolic batting collapse for Punjab. © Twitter/IPL A team that had posted a mammoth 230-run total in their last match, was eventually bowled out for a mere 73 runs - their lowest total in IPL history. On the forgetful day, where the likes of Guptill (0), Marsh (10), Eoin Morgan (4) and Glenn Maxwell (0) failed miserably, Axar emerged as the top-scorer with his 22-run knock. “I’m very disappointed. I can say that none of the foreign players took responsibility and at least played 12 to 15 overs. Their role was at least one of the top four should bat for 12 to 15 overs, but none of the batsmen took the responsibility.” Viru isn't holding anything back #RPSvKXIP #IPL2017 https://t.co/wzJbUrEkP2 #VIVOIPL via @ipl — Cricket Geek (@CricGeeks) May 14, 2017 “I think they were complaining that the wicket was a bit slow but when you play international cricket so much, you should get used to playing on difficult or good wickets. There are very rare occasions when you get a good wicket to bat on but whatever wicket you get, you have to play at least 20 overs for your side. But Maxwell, Shaun Marsh, Guptill and Morgan [were all disappointing],” a disappointed Sehwag said during the post-match press conference. “Even Marsh, his role was to play till 10-12 overs, but the way he got out was disappointing and then Maxwell and Morgan, these are the experienced players… I mean the players who got out had been informing the next batsman that it’s a slow wicket and even then if you throw away wickets, it means that you’re not up for the game,” Sehwag continued. © Twitter/IPL While the overall batting display had shocked Sehwag, it was Maxwell's inconsistency that disappointed him the most. “We always knew that when Maxwell fires, then he can win the match on his own. But he didn’t fire in most games. That is a big disappointment, especially since he is experienced, having played for Australia’s Test and ODI teams. He didn’t take the responsibility as a captain and didn’t perform for Kings XI Punjab,” he said. The former Indian cricketer also pointed out that the absence of Hashim Amla at the top was another contributing factor to Punjab's dismal show. “We missed Hashim Amla, for sure. The kind of consistency he showed, none of the other players could do that, an individual couldn’t take responsibility. Saha played one (good) innings, Manan Vohra played one innings but apart from that none of the others played responsibly.” © Twitter/IPL Punjab's shambolic nine-wicket loss to Pune saw their hopes of making the play-offs go down the drain. While Pune set up a meeting with Mumbai in Qualifier 1, Punjab finished their IPL campaign with a fifth-place finish and 14 points this year.
  24. No other team has looked as convincing as the in-form Mumbai Indians (MI) in the tenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) so far. From brilliant batting performances to sublime bowling spells, the Rohit Sharma-led brigade has arguably become one of the title favourites this season. But, amid multiple contributing factors to Mumbai's stellar show, the availability of the Pandya brothers has undoubtedly bolstered the team against their opponents this season. While Hardik Pandya is dangerous down the order and looks influential with his seam bowling, his brother Krunal is a prolific spinner and his availability strengthens Mumbai's middle-order. © Twitter A great addition to the Mumbai franchise, the Pandya brothers share a good rapport and their camaraderie is often seen in the field and on social media. The two cricketers have engaged in Twitter banter in the past, but Hardik's recent tweet turned a few heads including that of Virender Sehwag. After Mumbai's win over Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Hardik stunned everyone with his tweet that read: "Sometimes in life, people closest to you end up disappointing you the most. Not cool, bro!” Sometimes in life, people closest to you end up disappointing you the most. Not cool, bro! — hardik pandya (@hardikpandya7) May 14, 2017 Puzzled by his younger brother's tweet, Krunal replied, "@hardikpandya7, this shouldn't have happened in the first place. I am bade bhaiyya for a reason. Let's not make this a big issue!" @hardikpandya7 .@hardikpandya7, this shouldn't have happened in the first place. I am bade bhaiyya for a reason. Let's not make this a big issue! — krunal pandya (@krunalpandya24) May 14, 2017 While everyone was confused what the Pandya brothers were sparring over, Sehwag came up with a theory of his own, claiming that money could be a reason behind this fight. Lagta hai ,"Baap Bada Na Bhaiyya, Sabse Bada Rupaiyya" - is gaane ko jyada hi seriously le liya .Lado mat yaar !#PandyaBrosFight https://t.co/VIyWjs2YnX — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) May 14, 2017 “Lagta hai, 'Baap Bada Na Bhaiyya, Sabse Bada Rupaiyya' – is gaane ko jyada hi seriously le liya. Lado mat yaar!” wrote Sehwag on Twitter leaving fans with more questions than answers. © Twitter Both Hardik and Krunal have been star performers for Mumbai Indians this season winning games from difficult situations for their team. Hardik has taken 6 wickets along with scoring 224 runs in 14 matches so far while Krunal has chipped in with 136 runs and 10 wickets in 10 matches.
  25. There are a lot of images you'd come across in cricket. Every single one of those photographs has a tale of its own. While the old cricket pictures take us back to the early days of the game, the latest ones highlight how far the sport has come today. A similar cricket photograph has been shared by Virender Sehwag on his Twitter handle today. The old photo features West Indies legend Viv Richards appearing to make a move against what looks like a team of Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar and a young Yuvraj Singh. Move in Silence , Speak only when it's time to say Checkmate .#ShatranjKeKhiladi pic.twitter.com/DLYXOW3AfF — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) May 7, 2017 “Move in Silence, Speak only when it’s time to say Checkmate,” said Sehwag in his caption. While the details of the image are yet to be ascertained, the Windies batting great is clearly seen giving a hard time to the Indian trio on the chess board. With more than 400 retweets and over 3,000 likes, the photograph seems to have struck the right cord with the fans. After all, it's not usual for the fans to witness the three cricket legends and a batting prodigy engrossed in a game of chess.
