Virender Sehwag pays ‘tribute’ to Aryabhata in his typical style

Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag was one of the most swashbuckling batsmen of his time. The fearless right handed batsman has won the hearts of cricket fans throughout his career. He has a huge fan base from across the world and once formed a deadly opening pair in international cricket along with Sachin Tendulkar.

Both the openers threw fear into the minds of the bowlers and when he was at the crease, his fans always expected some batting explosions. Virender Sehwag retired from all forms of cricket in 2015 and India is finding it really hard to find a replacement for his explosive batting.


Apart from cricket, Virender Sehwag is also an active social media user and is also well known for his witty posts on social media. The former cricketer is an active user on Twitter and always comes with several tweets that are funny and interesting to read.

On Monday, he came with an interesting Tweet in which he remembered an incident, which took place on the same day in 2011.


While explaining the incident, Sehwag also paid tribute to Aryabhata who was inventor of digit 0. His tweet was in a funny way and it got a huge response on social media. During the 2011 tour of England, India faced a 0-4 whitewash in the test series, and in the third test match, Sehwag was dismissed for duck in his two innings.

Stuart Broad dismissed Sehwag in the first innings and in the second innings, he was consumed by James Anderson.


Based on this incident, Sehwag tweeted, "On this day 8 years ago, I scored a king pair vs England in Birmingham after flying for 2 days to reach England and fielding 188 overs. Unwillingly paid tribute to Aryabhatta. If there was zero chance of failure, what would you do? If you have it figured, do that (sic)."
