Batting legend Virender Sehwag is having a gala time on twitter. The maverick cricketer is winning hearts of every Indian with his acerbic tweets and scathing sense of humour. His pun-filled tweets have forced to us consider whether he is a better timer of the ball or words.
Having a follower count of over 6.5 millions even as his total tweets are less than 6000 ,itself says he is knocking off the ball in right direction
Be it is his hilarious birthday wishes, even more epic trolling of our neighbours, and his flaying of trolls who tried to make fun of India's performance in Olympics, The Nawab of Najafgarh has ensured that he is equally entertaining both off and on field.
Yesterday only, Sehwag smartly put British journalist Piers Morgan at his place when the later questioned India's wild celebration of two medals at Rio Olympics..
Country with 1.2 billion people wildly celebrates 2 losing medals. How embarrassing is that? https://t.co/FYSBM7ErAf— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) August 24, 2016
To this Sehwag gave Morgan the reply of the century.
