This is how Suresh Raina wished Virender Sehwag today.

Be it any format, any condition, any opponent, he would smash you all day and that’s the essential Virender Sehwag for you! The ‘Nawab of Najafgarh’ is celebrating his birthday today as he turns 39. He is one of the integral peaches of Indian cricket history and bowlers’ nightmare. He is the man who made the game look so easy by his fearless approach.

Having a go at the bowlers is one of Sehwag’s principles and the result is going to be the same as that of smacking the balls all over the turf. Maintaining a star-studded strike-rate in all the formats is something very few players have and Sehwag has managed to do that on a consistent basis.

Livewire in wielding the willow, cracking tons, tremendous strokes, high-flying rockets of sixers kept pouring like rain in Sehwag’s stint. Gone are the days when the fans used to witness the realm of fireworks in Sehwag’s measured approach as he sets up everything perfectly.

Virender Sehwag is the first Indian to score 300 and the only Indian to score 2 triple centuries. He achieved the feat against Pakistan and South Africa. He was also on the verge of making it three but unfortunately got out on 293 against Sri Lanka. Sehwag is the second Indian to score a double century in ODI’s after Sachin Tendulkar.

He is certainly the ‘crowd puller’ and he is an expert in that. He has also managed to beef up the expectations and reputation of himself as an aggressive batsman with attacking instincts. Thanks to Sehwag for all the glorious years he donned the Indian jersey. He had managed to cover all the bases in the form of entertainment both on and off the field.
