Singing a Bollywood song while batting in an intense situation of an international level match, chewing a gum and hitting sixes at the same time is not every cricketer’s cup of tea unless he is Virender Sehwag. Viru is as fond of Bollywood songs as he loves to hit the ball out of the park. Sehwag started his international career in 1999 against Pakistan but failed miserably; he never got a chance in ODI cricket for the next 20 months. Sehwag started off again in 2000 against Zimbabwe, scored his maiden fifty and awarded by his first ever man of the match prize. Sehwag soon acknowledged as an heir of ‘The God Of Cricket’, acknowledged by Sachin Tendulkar several times. He was in and out of the team with fewer appearances in test cricket, but when given a chance, Sehwag just proved himself that he is more capable for test cricket.
