New Delhi: The swashbuckling Indian opener Virender Sehwag bid adieu to the international cricket on his 37th birthday yesterday. He announced his retirement on Twitter after more than two-and-a-half years from his last appearance for India. It came as saddening news for all the cricket fans who love his unmatchable batting style.
What makes Sehwag one of his kind is his flamboyant batting and fearless nature. He is the only Indian batsman to score a triple-century in Tests, and he did it twice.
Soon after the retirement news came in, words of appreciation and honour started pouring in on the great batsman.
While everyone was paying tribute in their own manner, comedian Gaurav Gera chose a rather unique way. He made a dubsmah video with Virender Sehwag in the famous ‘shopkeeper' series.
It is good to see Veeru in the comic avatar, a break from his usual aggressive look on the cricket field.
Take a look.
