Sports Gallery Happy Birthday Virender Sehwag: ‘Nawab of Najafgarh’ turns 37 today Virender Sehwag, the entertaining opener, turns 37 on Tuesday. Here's a look at some of his rare pictures, from the Express Archives. Virender Sehwag, the entertaining opener, turns 37 on Tuesday. The belligerent right-hander, who has represented India in 104 Tests, last played for the country in the longer format in 2013. Out of favour, the 'Nawab of Najafgarh' is playing domestic cricket since then - first for his state Delhi now for Haryana. Virender Sehwag moved from Delhi to Harayana this year, and has already played two Ranji Trophy games for his new state. When he is not playing cricket, his school - Sehwag International - keeps him busy. India's only Test triple-centurion averages approx 50 in the longer format but is nowhere close to a Test return, as of now. In his absence, Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan have cemented their spots, and there's young KL Rahul who has impressed in his outings so far. While there were plenty of reports about his retirement on Monday, the 37-year-old has rubbished them as of now and it remains to be seen when he calls time on his international career.
