Virender Sehwag, Sourav Ganguly and Harbhajan Singh

Reviving old times, former India cricketer Virender Sehwag on Tuesday posted a picture with his former teammates Sourav Ganguly and Harbhajan Singh which has got the Indian fans nostalgic on seeing the trio together in the same frame after a long time. 

Alongside the picture, posted on Twitter, Sehwag wrote, "Reunion!" 

Ganguly, Sehwag and Harbhajan have been part of many epic matches for the Men in Blue

Sehwag and Ganguly featured in many iconic partnerships and their opening partnership in the Natwest final against England in 2003 is still remembered by many people around the globe.

These three players played in two World Cups together in 2003 and 2007. In the year 2003, India was able to reach the finals of the tournament in which they were defeated by Australia.

In 2007, India had a dismal performance in the World Cup as they were knocked out in the group stage after suffering defeats at the hands of Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

Ganguly, often hailed as the captain who brought the fighting spirit in the Men in Blue, failed to lift World Cup trophy in his entire career. However, Sehwag and Harbhajan were able to finally get their hands on the World Cup trophy in 2011 as India won the tournament after 28 years by defeating Sri Lanka in the finals.

Currently, the trio are on commentary duties for the ongoing warm-up matches ahead of the World Cup.

India would look to win their third World Cup title and they take on South Africa in their opening match of the tournament on June 5.
