Former Indian opening batsman Virender Sehwag tore bowling attacks from around the world in his heydey and continues to make his presence felt on social media with his witty tweets. Former Australian wicketkeeper-opener Adam Gilchrist had the same impact with the bat. Now that the Indian team is hosting Australia at home and have already taken a 3-0 unassailable lead in the series, Adam Gilchrist decided to be ‘tongue-in-cheek’ with Sehwag. Gilchrist posted a tweet which read, “Let’s face it…
@virendersehwag could create the odd headache for an opposition attack!!”
Coincidentally, Sehwag scored 219, which was his career-best score, against West Indies at the same venue Holkar Stadium, where India was hosting Australia for the 3rd One Day International.
The tweet contained a meme featuring an image of Virender Sehwag, hinting at Sehwag’s streak during a previous India-Australia match when a reporter asked Gilchrist, ‘Any plans to stop Sehwag?’ to which Gilchrist’s response was, ‘Yes, we have planned to lock him in the hotel room’.
To this meme, Twitter burst out laughing and these were the comments that followed:

It seems the two legends are having a good time trolling each other over social media. The fans too seem to be having fun over it.
