Virender Sehwag, who was the aggressive opener of the Indian team, has turned 41 today. He is congratulated by the sports world on this occasion. The BCCI also shared a video and congratulated him in a special way. Sehwag, who has identified himself on social media since retirement, started attacking the bowlers of the opposition team with the first ball of the match. When Sehwag, popularly known as Veeru, came to the crease, he became awe for the opposing bowler and sent even the weakest ball of the bowler directly across the boundary.
Virender Sehwag, who was the aggressive opener of the Indian team, has turned 41 today.
During Viru’s career, there was an exciting fight between him and Pakistan’s fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar. In 2004, the famous Akhtar named Virender Sehwag and Rawalpindi Express were once again face-to-face in a match on the Indian team’s tour of Pakistan.
Then Akhtar was deliberately saying after every ball to bother him, “Chauka maar kedikha, chauka maar kedikha”. On Shoaib’s repeated saying, Sehwag also gave a tremendous reply and told Akhtar, ‘You are bowling or begging’. After this, Sehwag hit Akhtar with a four.
Sehwag himself has also revealed this story about the ground between him and Akhtar many times. Sehwag has also played many brilliant innings against Pakistan and his bat spoke fiercely against Akhtar.
Sehwag scored 8586 runs in 104 Tests at an average of 49.34 with 23 centuries and 32 half-centuries. His best score has been 319. Viru scored 8273 runs in 251 ODIs, including 15 centuries and 38 half-centuries. Veeru’s best score in this format is 219. Sehwag scored 394 runs in 19 T20 matches.
