The former opening batsman of Indian cricket team, Virender Sehwag turns 38 on 20th October, incidentally Sehwag shares his birthday with another great Indian opening batsman Navjot Singh Siddhu, who turns 53. To start off with, Sidhu and Sehwag share a lot together in common besides their birth date, both of them were known for their explosive batting style, both were opening batsmen and both of them now have a humongous social presence post retirement.
Sehwag retired from all forms of cricket last year on his birthday, whereas Sidhu retired, almost 15 years ago and since then both of them have been making news either in the commentary box while commentating for the game or on social media.
Navjot Singh Siddhu, is very well known all over the world for his ‘Sidhuisms’ and ‘Thoko talli’. Considering that Sehwag shares his birthday with Sidhu, he surely did not want to be left far to behind in comparison to Sidhu.
So Sehwag took to twitter with his own form of ‘Sehwagism’… er… sarcasm…pun…er… word play etc. Sehwag the ace cricketer has turned into an entertainer on Twitter so much so, that his fans are joining twitter just to read his tweets and if he continues with the form that he is on twitter we might soon see him sitting next to Navjot Singh Sidhu, on the comedy show.
Here are some of the Sidhuism and Sehwagism
Sehwag’s tweet after Kohli guided India to a win against New Zealand.
Haazme ki goli, Rangon ki holi,
Aur batting me kohli
Poore India ko pasand hain

Sidhu with his Sidhuism
If you throw a football and good character, they will rebound twice as high. Throw a good reputation, and it’s like an egg.
Sehwag uploaded a picture with his wife on Instagram and captioned it…
With wife be like non-striker end.
#greattime with #mybestpartner
Sidhu with some morning motivation.
An optimist sees the Doughnut; a pessimist sees the hole! Good Morning!!!
Sehwag wishing Bolt for winning at Olymoics.
Congrats,but this is not fair Bolt Ji,you should be in F1 race without a Car & I think u will still win with ur feet.
Words of wisdom from Sidhu
In times of prosperity friends will be aplenty, In times of adversity not one in twenty. I am proud of Team India and stand with them.
