One of the most aggressive and dangerous batsmen in the world, Virender Sehwag, celebrated his 39th birthday on Friday. Even after retirement, Viru entertained us with his tweets like he did with his bat on field. Many cricketers took to social media and wished the former batsman in their own style. But, there was one ‘Ulta’ wish from the legend Sachin Tendulkar that stood aside from other wishes. Tendulkar wished his former opening partner with a photo of them on field and an upside down message “Happy birthday, viru! have a great start to the new year. you’ve always done ulta of what i have told you on field. so here’s one from me?”.

Sehwag replied in his own style, calling Sachin ‘God ji’
Thank you God ji 🙏🏼Uparwala sab dekh raha hai, yeh to suna tha, par aaj samajh aaya, woh neeche waalon ke liye likhta kaise hai ! https://t.co/stdodewNuJ

Be it on field or off it, Tendulkar and Sehwag are known to share a close bond. They were known to be one of the most dangerous opening pairs in the world of cricket.
