Former India opener Virender Sehwag, most understood for his unorthodox batting style, three-way centuries and amusing replies on Twitter, turned 41 on Sunday, October 20, 2019.

Referred to as one of one of the most preferred Indian openers in Test history, Sehwag is the only Indian to have actually scored 2 triple-tons. He resembled racking up a 3rd one when he departed for 293 versus Sri Lanka at the Brabourne stadium.

Sachin Tendulkar led the dreams from the cricket fraternity as the Master Blaster posted a photo of both and also wrote, “Cracking the round on the field and also cracking jokes off it.” The BCCI was among the very first to wish the previous opening batsman by posting highlights of Sehwag’s three-way century, which he scored versus South Africa in Chennai back in 2008.

Happy birthday @virendersehwag!
