Former Indian cricketer and present Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) mentor Virender Sehwag has got a huge fan following because of his attacking attitude on and off-the-field. But Sehwag, probably, met his most passionate and oldest fan quite recently.
Sehwag could not stop himself from posting a selfie with the fan on Twitter and Facebook.
Here’s Sehwag’s viral tweet –
Felt extremely touched on meeting Om Prakash ji, who is 93 years old and came from Patiala to meet me in Chandigarh and expressed his love for me. Dada ko Pranam. pic.twitter.com/8AHHqNl753

Sehwag’s KXIP has done reasonably well in this season. They have won two out of three matches. Their expensive recruit KL Rahul scored the fastest fifty of IPL against Delhi Daredevils (DD). After suffering a loss by a small margin to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in their second match, their move to give veteran T20 batsman Chris Gayle a chance worked wonders.
Gaylestorm blew away Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in their third match of the tournament. Sehwag posted a video of celebrations after the match as well where Gayle was seen cutting the cake after his quickfire knock.
They are currently placed third in the IPL 2018 points table. They will be looking for their first-ever IPL title win. In the last season, they missed out on a playoff spot by a whisker.
