Former Indian swashbuckling opener Virender Sehwag was a terror to star-studded bowling line-ups during his heydays and was arguably the most destructive batsman of his generation. There wasn’t any footwork associated with Sehwag’s batting style but relied on a sensational hand-eye coordination which yielded him tons of runs during his illustrious career.

“The Nawab of Najafgarh” redefined opening batsmanship in the longest format of the game and during his stint as an international player, the world-class batsman got India off to flying starts on several occasions. He also holds the joint record for two triple centuries in Test cricket along with Sir Don Bradman and Brian Lara.

He was in line to become the only batsman to smash three triple centuries, but unfortunately, the destructive batsman felt seven runs short of yet another feat against Sri Lanka. In limited overs cricket, he was the 2nd batsman after his ideal Sachin Tendulkar to score an ODI double century.

He was eventually dropped from the national squad during the Test series against Australia in 2013 and never returned after that. His performances went down even in the domestic circuit which never paved the way for his comeback and eventually he called it quits from the game a couple of years later.

After taking a break from all forms of cricket, the dasher was seen in action during the inaugural Global T10 League in UAE. Sehwag was the captain of the Maratha Arabians franchise but failed to impress with the bat. He was the hat-trick victim of Shahid Afridi in his first encounter when he failed to read a well-directed wrong-un from the willy customer which thudded on to his stumps.

He failed to impress even in the 2nd match. However, it was a nice experience for him to be back on the field. Taking to his twitter handle, he thanked his franchise and the owner of the franchise for making him a part of the tournament.

Taking to his twitter handle, Sehwag wrote, “On my way back to India after an extremely thrilling and exciting @T10LeagueTweets in UAE! Thanks @marathaarabians @parvezkhan35 for making me a part of this successful adventure.”
