Known for his aggressive and flamboyant style of play, former Indian opening batsman Virender Sehwag is regarded as one of the most dangerous batsmen in the history of the game.
On Saturday, Sehwag turned the clock back once again when he posted a televised video on his official Twitter handle where he can be seen smashing a six in an exhibition match.
Playing in the Karnataka Chalana Chitra Cup (KCC) at the M. Chinnaswamy stadium, Sehwag displayed glimpses of his old self for franchise Kadamba Lions.
In his tweet along with the video, Sehwag wrote, “Usool tab bhi wahi tha, ab bhi wahi hai. Shubh kaam mein der kaisi. Entertainment Entertainment Entertainment. Was fun batting today.”
