It’s Virender Sehwag’s birthday and he just turned 38. So no surprises that we have Twitter’s favourite Indian cricketer dominating social media today, what with his 7 million followers wishing him from across the world. To give the man full credit, he’s even managed to reply to most of them. To make mark his birthday, Sehwag asked people on social media to ask him anything they want to answer and he’ll try to reply. “You can ask your questions to me using #AskSehwag . Will try and answer as many as possible and then will do #ViruKiCommentary on Periscope” he wrote.
While he gave many hilarious answers through the day, one of them absolutely stood out. A troll asked him about his favourite dish and his response was epic! “Sir which of the following is your favorite dish ? Rajma Chawal, Butter Chicken, Shoaib Akhtar or Piers Morgan. #AskSehwag” Predictably yet unpredictably, he responded, “The last two.”
In case you don’t know, Sehwag and British journalist Piers Morgan share a very interesting love-hate relationship on Twitter. Recently, Morgan corrected Sehwag’s grammar on a tweet he made wishing Indian for winning against England in Kabaddi World Cup. It wasn’t the first time Morgan and Sehwag had a controversial conversation on Twitter. The journalist has picked on him earlier when he bet $1 million to charity on England winning an ODI World Cup before India wins another Olympic Gold medal.
This response by Sehwag must have won him a few more followers than the millions he already has. Take a look at some of the responses.
