Twitter Cricket Fraternity Reacts To Virender Sehwag’s Birthday
The Twitter Cricket Fraternity was quick to start pouring in wishes for the swashbuckling opener who was created a lot of fear for the bowlers when he was in the crease. He never cared about losing his wicket and always was looking to take on the bowlers which were his direct game plan. He always looked to get one step ahead of the bowlers and wasn’t shattered by any pace bowling.
Virender Sehwag was the opener for India in the Worldcup winning campaign in 2011 and he interestingly hit the first ball of every game in the tournament for a boundary. He was very vital to India’s success in the tournament and has been one of the most cherishable characters as well. He has a huge fan base on Twitter and the wishes had come over from all over the world in the cricket fraternity.
