Sharing a video on his Instagram handle, Sehwag hailed Abhishek Bachchan's performance as a coach. Further, he also mentioned Saiyami Kher's effortless ball spinning. He said, "I watched Ghoomer yesterday. I loved it and enjoyed watching a cricket film after so long. It not just has cricket but emotions too. You will know the struggle of a sportsperson especially how coming back after an injury is the struggle of another level."
"I never respect a spinner but the way Saiyami has spun the ball was amazing. I never listened to my coach but the way Abhishek has acted, you will have to listen to him.
