Virender Sehwag, in addition to his reputation of being one of the best Indian cricketers, is known for his wit and quirky way of trolling others. His sense of humour has earned him a social media celebrity status and often, he has taken to Twitter to make jokes, hold discussions and form opinions and has more or less managed to generate a buzz, each time. This time, it is Sehwag’s birthday wish to cricketer Brian Lara that has got Twitter users confused and no surprises there.

It was only a matter of time before Sehwag himself decided to take to the micro-blogging site to clarify. To one of the Twitter users asking, “Why BC Lara stands for??” he replied, “Brian Charles Lara only!”
