Virender Sehwag (born 20th October 1978) is a former Indian cricketer who is often considered as the most destructive batsman of the game.
Sehwag made his debut for India in 1999. In April 2009, he became the only Indian player to be honoured as the Wisden Leading Cricketer in the World for his performance in 2008, subsequently becoming the first player of any nationality to retain the award for 2009.
He is one of only two players in the world to score a double hundred in ODI and a triple hundred in Test Cricket, the other being West Indies opener Chris Gayle.
Sehwag retired from all forms of International cricket on his 37th birthday, on 20th October 2015. These days he is well praised by the fans and cricket fraternity for his witty humor-filled tweets on the micro-blogging site- Twitter.
