Virender Sehwag celebrates his 39th Birthday today (October 20)) and while the wishes started pouring in from early morning for India’s most explosive opening batsman, he was his usual cheeky self while thanking fans and former team-mates for their wishes. From Sachin Tendulkar to Ajinkya Rahane, from Suresh Raina to Chris Gayle, Sehwag had something to say for everyone.

Sehwag christened Parthiv Patel as “chhota chetan” (a famous movie title) while he asked a neglected Suresh Raina to continue working hard as he said, “lage raho.” Sehwag also hinted that he was grateful for the support his former captain Anil Kumble gave him during their playing days. “Owe a lot to your support,” is how Viru responded to Kumble.

Before retiring in October 2015, Sehwag played 103 Tests for India and scored 8,586 runs with 23 hundreds, 32 fifties at an average of 49.34.  Sehwag scored his Test runs at a strike rate of 82.33, while his 8273 ODI runs in 251 matches came at a strike rate of 104.33. In totality, he had 15 ODI hundreds and 38 half-centuries.

Known as one of the most destructive batsmen of all times, the ‘Nawab of Najafgarh’ holds the Indian record for the highest number of Test double-hundreds, and came within seven runs of becoming the only first batsman to score three triple-tons.

His swashbuckling ways are not limited to just on-the-field, it extends off-the-field. He has revolutionized the social media game like no former cricketer has and is vocal about his opinions. His Hindi commentary has also won him many loyalists who use his one-liners on Twitter.

Most of the wishes were an attempt to replicate his own quirky tweets, but he once again showed how he’s far ahead in the social media game than anyone else as he replied to all of the wishes laced with wit.
