Former cricketer Virendra Sehwag tweets and tweets a lot. Looks like he spends 70 per cent of his time on the microblogging site creating weird and funny hashtags. This time he has come up with #Shoibkibdayparty. This hashtag is to celebrate former Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Akhtar’s birthday tomorrow. Talking about birthday wishes, nobody can beat the king. He is known on Twitter for his birthday wishes, they’re so hilarious. Imagine, this is how he wished MS Dhoni on his birthday. “Happy Birthday @msdhoni, “May you keep doing Anhoni ko Honi.#NationalHelicopterDay”. And this is how he wished Kevin Pietersen, “A very happy birthday @KP24. When we used to play for Delhi,I always thought, This KP will send the ball to CP”!
But trust Sehwag to throw us in fits of laughter with his wit every now and then. And this post he shared today is absolutely winning the Internet. He doesn’t just make fun of others, he trolls himself too. Apparently, five years ago, on August 12, he played a Test match against England and got bowled out on zero twice after fielding for 188 overs. He said he felt like a “kachha nimbu”.
“ThisDay5yrs ago,I unwillingly honoured Aryabhatt twice by getng king pair vs Eng aftr fldng fr188ovrs.Felt like kachha limbu,who only fields,” he tweeted and it has gone viral with over 1,000 shares.
People on Twitter have unanimously crowned him “king of trolls”. A user commented, “These days I just open twitter just to look at your tweets”. Another said, “take a bow to your tweets these days sir!!”
