Virender Sehwag is often noted for his extremely attacking style of batting and is known for his destructive batting. His unorthodox yet result-oriented techniques made him the most exciting opener in the world. He was one of the most trusted opening batsmen in India. Apart from his terrific batting skills, Virender Sehwag is known for his witty comments and replies. The destructive opener of the Indian team challenged Pakistani bowler Shoaib Akhtar in the best possible words.
In a world cup match in the year 2003, Shoaib Akhtar was continuously bowling bouncers to Sehwag and was forcing him to play the pull shot, a shot that was the biggest weakness of the Indian opener. This somehow frustrated the Delhi boy and so he decided to give him the right answer. He went on to challenge the fastest bowler in the history of cricket by asking him to bowl the short ball to Sachin Tendulkar. The master blaster straightaway dispatched the short ball towards the boundary that went for a six. After that six Virender Sehwag went up to Akhtar and said “Baap Baap Hota hai and Beta Beta”. The former cricketer revealed about this savage reply from him to the Pakistani bowler during an Award function in 2010. Well, right from the beginning Sehwag was at his witty best.
