Virender Sehwag wishes Adam Gilchrist “Happy Birthday” in his own typical style

Former Australian wicket-keeper batsman Adam Gilchrist celebrated his 45th birthday on Monday.

On this occasion, the Nawab of Najafgarh, Virender Sehwag wished the Aussie great in his typical style, invoking India’s traditional game of ‘Gilli-Danda’ and perfectly conjuring up a beautiful word-play with Gilchrist’s nickname.

Sehwag wished ‘Gilly’ on Twitter and wrote :”Today is a day to play Gilli Danda as a tribute to the incredible @gilly381 . Happy Birthday Adam Gilchrist”.

Gilchrist also thanked Viru for his birthday wish tweet by commenting, “Just seen this @virendersehwag Brilliant! Many thanks and what a tough game it is!!”

Both the star players spent some time together playing for Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
