We all know that former Indian opener Virender Sehwag was a nightmare for bowlers during his playing days. After his retirement, he decided to give the same entertainment to the audience in the form of a commentator. We also know how witty and funny Sehwag’s tweets are. Imagine his commentary, he rocks, isn’t it?
Much like his fearless batting, Sehwag is fearless with his qwerty keypad with his hilarious birthday wishes and reviews based on cricket or social aspects. In his new avatar, Sehwag has built a huge fan base as a result of his amazing sense of humor. There is no escaping from him as he never misses a chance of trolling anybody on Twitter.
Currently a part of the commentary team for ICC Champions Trophy, Sehwag continues to entertain fans by cracking funny one-liners in between matches. Earlier, we had seen Sehwag has trolled various cricketing personalities with his wonderful tweets.
On Monday, the Nawab of Nazafgarh decided to troll former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly and the legendary Australian leggie Shane Warne. Sehwag tweeted a picture of Dada and Warne taking a quick nap during the high-voltage India-Pakistan fixture at Edgbaston, Birmingham in the ICC Champions Trophy.
The two are also a part of the commentary team and had to pay a price for sleeping between breaks. Due to the hectic schedule of the tournament apart from the constant to and fro motion from the studios, commentary box, and the ground, it can be demanding sometimes for the aging legends of the game.
Therefore, Warne took to the couch for a quickie. Dada didn’t even wait for an empty couch as he took to the floor for sleeping. Sehwag was quick to capture the two legends in the act and didn’t take too long to update his followers on Twitter. Sehwag wrote, “The future is shaped by one’s dreams. These legends still don’t waste time in following their dreams. Sone Ka Maza@SGanguly99 @ShaneWarne.”

Shane Warne was quick to reply to Sehwag’s tweet:

In the early 2000s, the trio has played cricket together when Ganguly was India’s captain and Sehwag his key batter have provided several nightmarish moments to Warne, who is regarded as the finest leg-spinner and the most astute cricketing brains ever. Warne has retired from international cricket in 2007, while Ganguly followed suit in 2008 and Sehwag in 2015.
Sehwag has also been involved in healthy fights inside the commentary box with several cricketers from across the globe. It remains to be seen as to how will Dada reply to Sehwag’s tweet.
