Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has been instrumental in scripting India's victory over New Zealand in the recently concluded Test series that ended in a 3-0 whitewash.

Last week, India reclaimed the top spot in the Test rankings after defeating New Zealand by a solid 178 runs in the second match at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

The Kiwis were chasing a mammoth 475-run target and fell apart for just 153 runs in 44.5 overs with an entire day to spare, as Ashwin delivered yet another sensational spell of spin bowling that ended with seven for 59 and triggered the comprehensive Kiwi batting collapse.

The 30-year-old spinner finished with a match haul of 13 for 140, and ended the series with 27 wickets, picking up his seventh man-of-the-series award in the process.

Virender Sehwag, now a popular social media figure, congratulated Ashwin in a hilarious tweet.

Ashwin acknowledged Viru's tweet.

The casual exchange took a hilarious turn when Ashwin's better half, Prithi Ashwin revealed something.

Seeing this, Viru's wife Aarti Sehwag joined the party and wrote, ".@prithinarayanan Neither did I. Both in a hurry as always @ashwinravi99 @virendersehwag".

This hilarious yet cute exchange eventually ended in trending "Family Time".
