Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag’s tweets are known to generate a strong buzz on social media. Though he has now retired from cricket, he still entertains his followers through his smart and sometimes downright comic posts, especially the way Viru Paji wishes his fellow cricketers on their birthdays. A few days ago, he wished Ishant Sharma and Parthiv Patel on Twitter in his witty way and today he went on to wish legendary Australian spinner, Shane Warne. As always, Sehwag left no stone unturned to make Warne’s birthday a memorable one.
While wishing the former Aussie leggie, Sehwag recalled the old days when numerous batsmen were scared of Warne’s mysterious bowling. With 709 wickets plucked in 145 international Test games, Shane Warne has been one of the best Australian spinners till date. He is also the second highest wicket taker in Tests after Sri Lankan spin legend Muttiah Muralitharan, who took 800 wickets in just 133 Test matches.
On Shane Warne’s 48th birthday, Virender Sehwag took to his Twitter account and shared a picture in which Warne’s arm could be seen as injured. Sehwag wrote,”Batsmen always wished ur hands were plastered like this while you were bowling, or atleast you warned them. Happy Birthday legend @ShaneWarne.”
