Virender Sehwag’s turned 38 today. He has always been a fan favourite and has earned multiple pet names such as Viru, Nawab of Najafgarh and Sultan of Multan. As a tribute to him, we write 4 reasons why the nation loves Viru. The number of reasons have been consciously chosen as 4, owing to the large number of boundaries he has accumulated in his career.
Sehwag’s explosive opening
Initially, Viru started his career as a middle order player. But owing to his explosive batting skills, he was promoted as an opener.
In limited overs cricket as well, Viru was an able partner for Sachin. The pair kept both the ends of the pitch interesting. While there was pure class at Sachin’s end, the other end was purely demolishing. Viru has carried India single-handedly in many matches and is a true match winner.
Be it seaming conditions, or bouncy conditions one can always expect a Sehwag special.
