Whether it was a limited overs game or a test match, Virender Sehwag was never inclined to go easy on the bowlers he faced on the crease.
So, while the 'Nawab of Najafgarh' said goodbye to the sport last year, he's just begun his second innings on Twitter and is pretty much hitting everything out of the park.
Sehwag has recently taken Twitter by a storm, revealing his inimitable sense of humor to the world.
He is effortlessly witty under 140 characters.
