Greats of the game pay tribute to ‘legend’ Sehwag


From Bollywood celebrities to his former India teammates, everybody wished legendary cricketer Virender Sehwag well as he announced retirement on Tuesday, the day he turned 37.

Sehwag is arguably one of the best batsmen India has produced. None of us can forget his triple-century in Multan during India’s 2003-04 tour of Pakistan.

Following are the some of the tributes paid to Sehwag:

 Gautam Gambhir, with whom Sehwag has had many successful partnerships in Tests, also paid his tribute to his former batting partner.

@virendersehwag who forced manufacturers to come up with crowd helmets…and still never missed the singles. Will miss you from d other end,” he wrote on twitter handle, before deleting the two tweets. “@virendersehwag Partnerships will never be the same without you bro! Will miss you…India’s greatest and the best opening batsman.”
