The Nawab of Najafgarh is considered the most destructive batsman of his game. And with good reasons too. With multiple records including the highest score made by an Indian in Test cricket (319 against South Africa at at M. A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai)[which BTW was also the fastest triple century in the history of international cricket (reached 300 off only 278 balls) as well as the fastest 250 by any batsman to his credit], post-retirement Viru Bhai has been proving he is destructive not just on the crease but also with words.
His twitter handle(@virendersehwag) is filled with proof of this.
Be it trolling his team-mates

The man has a way with words, that’s for sure. And apparently, a fondness for karma, as shown by the tweet his tweet this morning.
The India-England test series concluded today, with India winning by 246 runs. During the series, England pacer James Anderson got dismissed for a duck in both the innings of the second Test match against India at Vizag.
And Sehwag sure had something to say about it.
Viru Bhai wrote on his Twitter handle about how the English speedster dismissed him in 2011 for King pair – a term used when a batsman gets out off the 1st ball in both innings. Pair is getting out for 0 (facing more balls).
Jimmy Anderson made me pay tribute to Aryabhatta by getting me out for a King pair in 2011. Today,he too got a King pair.#KarmaBites 😀

And that’s how it’s done! Thank you Viru Paaji for the wonderful class on the art of trolling!
