Meanwhile, the decision to give the disputed land to Hindu side was a unanimous verdict from the 5-judge bench in the Supreme Court. The verdict came 9 years after the Allahabad Court announced a 3-way split into the case. The disputed 2.77 acres of land was divided among three parties — Ram Lalla, Sunni Waqf Board and the Nirmohi Akhara. The SC, however, termed the verdict as ‘incorrect’ before finally settling the matter with the historic decision.
Virender Sehwag, meanwhile, is one of the best batsmen to have played the game for India.The swashbuckling batsman was known to rip apart oppositions with his aggressive game. Hailed as one of the biggest match-winners in India’s Test history, he was the first Indian to score a triple century in Tests. In fact, he retired with two triple-tons to his name. Sehwag also has a ODI double century to his name.
