Virender Sehwag has been up to a lot of stuff lately. After entertaining his followers on Twitter with some funny tweets, Sehwag also enjoyed a good commentary stint for a reasonable period. He was one of the Hindi commentators during the recently concluded Champions Trophy.
Like during his playing days, Sehwag continued to hit boundaries even inside the commentary box. From verbal volleys to hilarious outtakes on cricketers in the field, Sehwag managed to make sure there was not a single dull moment with him at the helm. According to the latest reports, Viru is all set to don a new role. He is now expected to feature in a sports show for news channel India TV called ‘Cricket Ki Baat’. He will be a cricket expert on the panel.
Hearing it out from Sehwag
Sehwag confirmed the news and looked forward to it. “I am delighted to associate with India TV as a Cricket Expert. It is everyone’s dream to work for the channel that is led by India’s foremost News Personality Mr. Rajat Sharma.”
“I have always strived to further India’s pride through my Cricket & this wasn’t possible without my fans. I am sure that I will be able to present my viewpoint on the nitty-gritties of the game to each of my fan with utmost honesty. I hope that my innings with India TV will prove to be a very successful & a memorable one,” he was quoted by India TV.
From the Managing Director
Welcoming Sehwag on board, India TV MD Ritu Dhawan said, “We look forward to the fireworks the man is packaged with. We can’t be surer that with him on the panel, we have done the best possible job for our discerning audiences in terms of providing them with lively cricketing opinions.”
It would be interesting to see how the show turns out with Sehwag in the expert panel.
