15 Inspirational Quotes by the Legendary Virender Sehwag:- 

Viru’s Philosophy 

“My natural game is to watch the ball with a blank mind and if it is there to be hit, I go for it.”

Role Model

“Today if I”m a cricketer it is because of Sachin Tendulkar. Else, I would never have picked up a bat. He”s the reason behind me playing cricket”

 Approach towards game

“I don’t believe in technique, I believe in performance. If you are tough, whether you have technique or not, you’ll survive.”

 Mindset on the field

“If you know your game, you can handle pressure; you can handle any kind of situation, back yourself, and play your own game and get success.”

After a match-winning performance

“In the dressing room they told me I was hitting the good balls too, but if you look at it my way I hit only the bad ones”

Viru’s approach towards a Test innings

“I have made it very simple for myself. There are 90 overs to be played in a day. If I am able to hit a boundary in 80 of these I can get to a triple hundred by the end of the day’s play and set a match up for my team.”

Sehwag shares his experience on batting

“I have never changed my thinking, I have never changed my batting style. I have batted the way I batted in local tournaments and then first-class cricket, and I have applied the same approach in international cricket.”

Virender Sehwag on his hunt for runs

“When a person becomes satisfied, he doesn”t run after things, doesn”t worry about it, and doesn”t make efforts.”

Viru’s epic reply to Geoffrey Boycott after Geoff referred him as ‘talented but brainless’

“Boycott can say what he wants. He once batted the whole day and hit just one four.”

Sehwag’s point of view on the wickets

“It would surprise most to know that I never look at the wicket. Never. I don’t worry about whether the pitch has grass or moisture or is flat.”

 Viru’s way of playing

“I try to hit the ball along the ground, especially against fast bowlers. I also like the bat to come down in the right position and check if my body position is correct. If I”m really watching the ball carefully, then automatically I”m in a good position to hit it down the ground.”


 “In my view, if you have good or bad technique, it doesn”t matter. But you will survive if you can adjust your game at international level, you are mentally strong, you know your strengths and how to score runs.”

Running between wickets

“I am exceptionally aware about the nuances of the game. I know what’s happening, who is where and how to take advantage of him in the field.”

When asked about ‘the zone’

 “I have asked Tendulkar many times what the zone is. He tells me that’s when ‘I see nothing except the ball’. I have asked Rahul Dravid the same thing. He says sometimes when he is in really good form, he sees the ball and not even the sightscreen, the non-striker, the umpire or who is bowling. I ask how that is possible. I have never entered that zone.”

 After IND vs SL match at Rajkot (IND 414/7, SL 411/8)

 “I was actually supporting Sri Lanka. My superstition is that whenever I support India, we lose. So I was supporting Sri Lanka”
