The swashbuckling former opener who has made a mark for himself on Twitter with his wit and love for birthday wishes did not break this trend and wished himself in the best way.
Yes! We loved it when Sehwag wished himself on twiiter and asked everyone else to sing along to "Happy birthday to me”.

Current India coach Anil Kumble also wished Sehwag in his typical calm and composed demeanour. “Happy birthday Viru. Enjoy the day and the year ahead. God bless!,” wrote Kumble.
Other cricketing stalwarts such as Suresh Raina, Chris Gayle, Gautam Gambhir, Mohammad Kaif, VVS Laxman, Irfan Pathan and many others wished Sehwag on twitter and got hilarious replies in return.
Replying to Raina, Viru tweeted, “Thank you Suresh. Bahut log kehte hain “Raina hai Tere Dil Mein”.
