Twitter Reactions: Virender Sehwag gives a double delight to his fans
Updated - Feb 3, 2016 4:47 pm
Virender Sehwag and his class will forever remain together with each other. Most of the players lose their charm after spending some time in retirement. The ‘zing’ factor gets lost somewhere but that can never be the case with the evergreen Virender Sehwag.
Gemini Arabians came out to bat first after winning the toss and opting o bat first. The former Indian opener and Richard Levi came out to start the proceeding with the former taking the strike. Rikki Clarke ran in to bowl the first ball and there were no surprises as Sehwag dispatched it to the boundary ropes. The ball was pitched bit fuller and was in the hitting zone. He did not waste any time in smashing the balls over the covers region for a one bounce four.
But, there was a double whammy waiting for the bowler. Clarke came in to bowl the second ball and, unfortunately it met with the same result. It was another four!
The assault did not end for Clarke as he was smashed for a six and a boundary in his following over. The aggressive opener kept batting in the same flow and reached his half-century in style in the 8th over. He hit a four and six when at 43 and reached the milestone. Unfortunately, Sehwag could not carry on with the same aggression as he was dismissed in the next over by Abdul Razzaq for an entertaining 59 off just 27 balls at a strike rate of over 218.
The twitteratis were obviously happy with the Sehwag show and expressed it on Twitter. Here are the some of the best ones.
