Post his retirement from the game of cricket, former Indian opener Virender Sehwag developed quite a jovial reputation on Twitter due to his hilarious birthday wishes to cricketers. Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar gave Viru a dose of his own medicine as he wished the latter in a unique manner.

The Sachin-Sehwag pair is one of the most terrorizing pairs the game of cricket has ever seen. The pair had the perfect blend of attack from one end and technique from the other. However, during some occasions, Viru, in order to apply pressure to the bowlers, went out of his way to hit those risky boundaries, despite warning and caution from Sachin at the other end.


Therefore, Sachin Tendulkar took Viru’s 39th birthday as an opportunity to direct towards his reverse behaviour by tweeting the caption upside down. “.ǝɯ ɯoɹɟ ǝuo s,ǝɹǝɥ os ˙?pןǝıɟ uo noʎ pןoʇ ǝʌɐɥ ı ʇɐɥʍ ɟo ɐʇןn ǝuop sʎɐʍןɐ ǝʌ,noʎ ˙ɹɐǝʎ ʍǝu ǝɥʇ oʇ ʇɹɐʇs ʇɐǝɹƃ ɐ ǝʌɐɥ ¡nɹıʌ ‘ʎɐpɥʇɹıq ʎddɐɥ” captioned Sachin.

Which actually meant, “Happy birthday Viru have a great start to the new year! you have always done ulta of what I’ve told you o the field. So here’s one from me”.

To which the Nawab of Najafgarh replied by saying,”Thank you God ji ??Uparwala sab dekh raha hai, yeh to suna tha, par aaj samajh aaya, woh neeche waalon ke liye likhta kaise hai !”

Here’s the post:

The talismanic opening duo of Sachin and Sehwag have opened for India in 93 innings from the period of 2002 to 2012. The two prolific batsman have compiled 12-century stands accompanied by 18 half-century stand. Their stand of 183 against New Zealand in 2003 remains their highest opening stand.

The two batsman have a tally of 3919 runs in ODI cricket. However, the two iconic partnership came against Pakistan in the World Cup of 2003 at Centurion and Karachi in 2004.
