Former Indian opener, Virender Sehwag represented India during a period when the ‘Men in Blue’ had developed a winning habit. Under the leadership of Sourav Ganguly, India began winning overseas Tests, be it Headingley, drawn series in Australia, or India’s maiden series win in Pakistan.
Sehwag was an important feature in that strong Indian batting line-up. He was recognized as the lynchpin of the Indian top-order as the first-choice opener in each format. During his heydays, Sehwag was a crucial part of the Indian fab-five including the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul, VVS Laxman, and Sourav Ganguly. Even years after retirement, the flamboyant Indian opener is credited for having changed the perception of how Indians perceived thereafter Test cricket.
Sehwag shares a throwback picture
Sehwag, who has times and again alluded to the bond that he shared with each member of his team, recently posted a throwback picture with his former teammates. The Delhi-born player is seen posing a smile with skipper Ganguly, and his two other batting partners in Sachin and Dravid. The ‘Nawab of Nazafgarh’ as he is usually called as shared the moment on his official page at Social media via Facebook.
He captioned the post as, “What a day it was. Sometimes I remember a lot!”.
Here’s the post:
It was quite evident that Sehwag felt nostalgic as he re-collected one of his fond memories from the past. He has had some great moments on the field with each one of his batting mates at the crease. However, this picture is a sneak peek to the behind the door activities that players resort to while enjoying their time off the field.
The cricketer-turned commentator, Sehwag is quite active on social media and tends to regularly post messages for the Indian team. Sehwag has also earned quite a name for making some hilarious birthday wishes to his former teammates and friends via Twitter.
