Virender Sehwag has been involved in a Twitter convo with the legendary Sachin Tendulkar since last night. It all began when Tendulkar tweeted to congratulate team India on becoming the number one ranked team in the world. But, Sehwag had his own request and replied asking for motivation from Tendulkar.

Sehwag, who is currently on a commentary stint for the ongoing Test series between India and New Zealand, asked Sachin that commentators should also be encouraged while calling him as ‘God Ji’.


Sachin paaji did not disappoint and made a reply. He wrote: “Jiyo mere Lala….Tathaaaastuuuuu!!!”

But, Sehwag found a funny angle Sachin’s casual tweet too. Sachin Tendulkar is no doubt a legend and a player with a greater reputation than that of Sehwag. But, when it comes dropping one-liners and owning the twitter space, Sehwag is a greater legend that everyone else. He funnily mocked his former teammate that even while blessing, God doesn’t forget to mention to endorse the brand of his IPL franchise.

He tweeted: Aashirwad me bhi God ji , apni IPL team ke Maalik ke brand ka zikr karna nahi bhoolte. Sahi me, Duniya hila dete hain aap God ji

Now, a reply from the Master Blaster was keenly awaited and he did not make the fans wait for long and made a reply as quickly a possible. The reply came from a wise man with a philosophical touch.

Sachin Tendulkar replied: Woh to apni apni soch ki baat hai.Tumhari soch ki alag, meri spelling ki alag…

Plainly speaking Sachin said that “It’s just the matter of different perceptions.”

Now, it’s not hard to guess that Sehwag will also reply. It will be interesting to see how Sehwag would twist this philosophical tweet with his own tinge of sarcasm. It’s impossible that this conversation will end with Sehwag on the back foot. In fact, it may be on its way. Who knows maybe he’s typing his tweet while you are reading this.
