“When I began my life journey, we’d survive on Rs 500 a month as a family,” says Sehwag. “As time passed and I started playing for the country, this Rs 500 multiplied manifold, but it was not the money that mattered, it was the fact that I was fulfilling my ambition of playing cricket on the highest platform, representing my country. That was more satisfying than anything else,” Sehwag said in an interview to Hindustan Times.
