Bollywood actor Aamir Khan is busy promoting his upcoming movie ‘Secret Superstar’ these days. The promotions for the movie have been going great and the makers are trying different things to promote the movie. From appearances on the TV shows to organizing events, the movie seems to be getting a decent lot of promotional gig ahead of the release.
Recently, Aamir Khan was seen at the venue for the third and the final T20I between India and Australia. Aamir had made it to the occasion for the same reason of promoting his flick. He was seen sharing a segment with former Indian cricketer and one of the current Hindi broadcasters for the series, Virender Sehwag.
In the segment, Sehwag became the quiz master and decided to ask questions to Aamir. Not surprising enough, the questions revolved around cricket. The question that got Aamir Khan stumped on the day was a question on Virender Sehwag. Sehwag asked the veteran actor to guess the number of balls that he had taken to hit the fastest triple century.
He gave four options to Aamir. The options were 260, 278, 280 or 281 balls. A very witty Aamir, as he has always been known, opted to pick the smallest number from the option list. He mentioned that it was 260 deliveries. Much to his disappointment, the answer was wrong. Sehwag had hit the fastest triple century in 278 deliveries.
Master of triple tons
Sehwag is one of the very few batsmen to have hit two triple tons in Test cricket. His first triple ton had come against Pakistan (309) in the year 2003 at Multan. His second triple century was against South Africa (319) in 2010 at Chennai.
Commenting on the Hyderabad game, the match was called off without a ball being bowled. The series ended in a tie with the scoreline of 1-1. Team India will next host New Zealand in a week’s time.
