Virender Sehwag has been one of the most destructive openers in the game of cricket, who tried to unsettle the opposition from the starting by hitting boundaries from the very first ball of the match.  In the ongoing iB Cricket Super Over League, Harbhajan Singh lauded Sehwag’s attacking style and added that he is an inspiration for the young cricketers of today.This happened during the clash of India’s next-gen champs Prithvi Shaw and Shubman Gill when the former scored the boundary on the very first ball.

Harbhajan, who donned the role of commentator for this match, praised Prithvi Shaw and this generation for their daring approach to the game and added, “This generation takes inspiration from Viru.
