“King of Twitter” Virender Sehwag continued his stupendous form in the social networking site and again made headlines for wishing his fellow Indian cricketers Ravindra Jadeja, RP Singh, Karun Nair and Jasprit Bumrah on their birthday.

Sehwag who has been quite active on Twitter in the recent past wished a very happy birthday to his fellow cricketers and asked them to make a research on whether being born on 6th December increases the chances of playing for India.


One of the main reasons behind Sehwag asking this question to his fellow cricketers was the amount of players having their birthdays on 6th December.

In his first tweet, Sehwag wished Jadeja, Karun Nair, and RP Singh but later tweeted again, this time wishing yet another birthday boy Jasprit Bumrah. He was at his witty best and wrote, “Lo Ji , even #JaspritBumrah Birthday today. Jadeja,RP,Bumrah,Karun. Being born on 6th Dec surely increases chances of playing for India.

He meant that 6th December had surely something to do with cricket as so many cricketers were born on this particular day to have gone on to represent their nation at the highest level.

There were several funny replies given by his fellow cricketers as Sehwag continued his domination on Twitter.

“The Nawab of Najafgarh” who was the most destructive batsmen during his heydays retired from international cricket in 2013 after being continuously ignored for the national team’s selection.

In the year 2011, Sehwag became only the 2nd cricketer in the world after batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar to hit an ODI double century. His stupendous innings was followed by a gradual dip in form and eventually he was left out of the team in place of Murali Vijay.

The swashbuckling opener was a nightmare to all the bowlers during his peak and had the ability to single-handedly destroy any opposition within a blink of an eye.
