Former Indian batsman Virender Sehwag is a prominent figure on social media platform Twitter. It has been a long time since the destructive Virender Sehwag parted ways from the game of cricket, but the Delhi-born star has not lost his old habits. Much like his days as a cricketer, the right handed genius continues to entertain his fans, but of course, off the field.

From wishing his fellow celebrities on their birthdays to taking a stand on a political issue, from trolling his fans to cheering for the men in blue, Virender Sehwag keeps rules the Twitter world with every tweet of his. We got another example of the same when the veteran took to Twitter to wish Aussie legend, Shane Warne.

The main story:

Warne, who is undoubtedly the greatest leg spinner this world has ever seen, celebrates his 47th birthday today on September 13th. Virender Sehwag took the opportunity to come up with a wish for the cricketer with whom he has shared memorable moments on the field. The ‘Nawab of Najafgarh’ posted a photo of Shane Warne and himself from the time when both participated in a match between the MCC XI and the Rest of the World to mark 200 years of the iconic Lord’s stadium.

Both Sehwag and Warne represented the rest of the World and in the picture, Warne can be seen in pain with an injury┬áin his right arm. Sehwag captioned the picture saying that the batsmen always wished for Warne’s magical right arm to be tied up like this as he was an absolute nightmare for them. He ended the note by wishing the blonde a very Happy Birthday!

The MCC World XI won that match in a high scoring encounter riding on a brilliant century from Aaron Finch. Finch’s 181 run knock saw Yuvraj Singh’s 132 run inning for the Rest of the World team go in vain. The match was marked by an iconic moment when Yuvraj Singh went down to touch the legendary Sachin Tendulkar’s feet after the latter took his wicket.
