Virender Sehwag has a message for Team India

The 'Big Show' in Bengaluru saw Australia win their maiden T20I series on Indian soil, which has left the Men in Blue with some serious work to do, however, the loss has also left former India batsman Virender Sehwag red-faced. 

Sehwag, who was spotted in the India-Australia advertisements, earlier mentioned that they would be happy 'babysitting' visitors Australia on their tour of India, however, the result did not favour the Men in Blue which has left Sehwag eating his words.

In a recent advertisement, Sehwag has a hilarious message for Virat Kohli and Co, requesting the Men in Blue to win the upcoming five-match ODIs against Australia. 

Here's what the former batsman had to say. 

“Hello, Bhai kya kar rahe ho tumlog yaar? Maine itne ad mein bol diya ki humlog babysitting karenge. Aur tum, bhai dekh lo, marwa mat dena yaar,”

Before the T20Is against Australia, Sehwag took an amusing jibe at the visitors by bringing up the 'babysitting' episode, however, he was warned by legendary Australia batsman Matthew Hayden as he told Sehwag, "Australians ko bacchcha mat samajhna".

Australia rode on an excellent century from 'Big Show' Glenn Maxwell to chase 191 in the 2nd T20I to hand hosts India their second successive series defeat in the format. Incidentally, this was also captain Virat Kohli's first series loss at home across formats since he took over the reins from MS Dhoni.

Kohli has captained India in a total of 16 series in all forms at home including 7 in Tests and 5 in ODIs, winning them all. In 4 T20I series in India, Kohli has won two and drawn one (1-1 vs Australia, 2017) before losing the recent one.

India will now aim to put in their best foot forward in the upcoming five-match ODI series against Australia, which begins March 2 with the 1st ODI being held in Hyderabad.
