Arguably one of the most feared openers of his time, Virender Sehwag continues to be a fan-favourite in India. If his explosive batting performances enticed fans, Sehwag's wit and pun have equally allowed him to rule the charts on social media. Ever since his retirement from the gentleman's game, the 'Nawab of Najafgarh' has become one of the most iconic social media influencers from the cricketing world.
More recently, his humour was highlighted in the television commercial created to promote the upcoming Australia's tour of India wherein he was seen babysitting, what was meant to be, the Oz brigade in the dressing room. The promo instigated a response from Matthew Hayden and even Rishabh Pant who was labelled as the 'babysitter' by Australian Test captain Tim Paine during the Test series against India.

Making full use of his popularity, Sehwag went on to share a photo of himself from his playing days on social media.
Taking to Twitter, Sehwag asked the cricket fans to caption his picture. And, the responses from Indian cricket fans were hilarious.
