Virender Sehwag is one of the most destructive batsmen of all time. Sehwag’s technique is often cited as being particularly unorthodox, often backing away to free his arms whilst playing his shots, in particular, to cut or drive spinners inside out. Virender Sehwag is often noted for his extremely attacking style of batting, and in 2005 he was described by Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack as the “most exciting opener in the world”. Well, the cricketer revealed via an Instagram post that one of his batting technique is inspired from Ramayana.
With the show Ramayana back on television during the quarantine period, almost every Indian is enjoying the show. The photo Virender Sehwag posted is a scene from Ravan’s court, where Angad – the son of Bali and a member of the Vanara Sena – is standing strong as one of Ravan’s generals tries to move his feet as part of a challenge. “So here is where I took my batting inspiration from 🙂 Pair hilana mushkil hi nahi , namumkin hai “ wrote the cricketer citing a line from the film Don. Virender Sehwag is known for his humour as well and it was really a funny analogy he picked up to show his batting inspiration.
