Virendra Sehwag, regarded as the Vivian Richards of post-2000 era celebrated his 39th birthday today. Nicknamed as “Viru” by his fellow teammates, Sehwag was the most fearsome batsman of his era. Viru, who was capable of demolishing bowling attacks at his will and blast triple centuries with ease was the entertainer of one of his kind only.
Post-retirement, the Delhi dasher hasn”t changed one bit and continues to entertain people on social media with his witty remarks. Former Indian opening batsman is also famous for his hilarious and out of the box birthday wishes to other celebrities and fellow cricketers. Today was the turn of the “wish master” himself and Twitter tried their best to match his standards, wishing him happy birthday in lots of creative manners.
Living Legend and his closest friend the master blaster Sachin led the way by wishing viru in an unusual manner, others followed suit afterward.
