The Nawab of Najafgarh, Virender Sehwag, who is ruling the social media these days with his birthday tweets and also with one-liners during commentary box, formerly used to make a mark among his teammates and cricket fraternity through his simple and funny statements.
Let’s have a look at the Top 10 funniest statements by Virender Sehwag:
10.) “Beta beta hota hai, aur baap baap hota hai!” – Virender Sehwag sledging Shoaib Akhtar after the latter was hooked for a six by Sachin Tendulkar.
9.) On his love of playing spin: “Once Gary Kirsten asked me, ‘What would you do if there is a long-off, long-on and deep midwicket?’ I asked, ‘Gary sir, do fielders matter to me?’ He burst out laughing… Let me give an example: I was batting on 291 at Chepauk, against South Africa. I told Paul Harris, ‘Come round the wicket and first ball I’ll hit you for a six.’ He accepted my challenge and the very first ball I hit him for a straight six, and there was a long-off, long-on, deep midwicket and a deep point. I was so tired and he was bowling on the pads and I was getting bored. So rather than spending 10-15 minutes to get to the triple-century I gave him good advice.”
