We all know Virender Sehwag manages the headlines every now and then because of his exceptional wit and humour, but this time, the cricketer’s on the receiving end of things when he shared a really quirky picture of himself and that too, without a caption! Well, knowing him, that might have just been to bait tweeple into a caption contest.
In the picture – which was clicked at Yuvraj Singh and Hazel Keech’s wedding reception in Delhi on December 7 – Sehwag is wearing a blue blazer and beige pants – paired with, well, a brilliantly lit headgear. Check out the photo above, doesn’t it look like something ‘the gods’ would wear?!
Strategically positioned against a chandelier, the photographer’s done a swell job with this frame.
The funny and fiery ‘crown’ obviously didn’t go unnoticed and people can’t stop laughing at it, while trolling Sehwag at the same time. “And people say Viru is the most cool headed cricketer ever,” tweeted someone, while another said, “it took me to glance twice to notice how nature wants to crown you”.
Yuvraj and Hazel’s wedding has been dominating social media ever since the celebrations began in Chandigarh in the last week of November and Sehwag offered his own quirky contribution to the fun.
Here are some of the other reactions to the picture.

While we are talking about funny crowns, do you remember the one Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal wore when he had gone to Goa in June. Twitter trolled him mercilessly.

In fact, even Prime Minister Narendra Modi wore a peacock headgear during a rally in Rourkela.
