Virender Sehwag is always known to be an engaging personality. During his playing days, he was often seen humming songs while batting. He never shied away from sledging as well. One of the most popular was of Sehwag asking Shoaib Akhtar to bowl bouncers to Sachin Tendulkar and later telling him that – “Beta beta hota hai aur baap baap” (The son never outgrows his father).
The other party of that incident Shoaib Akhtar has also been known as a quiet and interactive personality on the field. He too was very aggressive on the field. Sehwag and Akhtar had many banters on the field but outside the park, they were very good friends.
Shoaib Akhtar was recently a part of a Show named “Pakistani are savage” on YouTube. The show was hosted by the Indian YouTuber Tanmay Bhatt. On the show, Shoaib Akhtar was shown a picture of his own that he shared on Twitter last year. In the picture, Akhtar is seen wearing a suit with a tie and had a pair of shades on. He captioned the picture – “Here is a new look, hope you guys like it.”
Sehwag was quick to comment on the picture and wrote, “@shoaib100mph order likh. 1 butte chicken, 2 naan, 1 beer.”
Reacting to Sehwag’s troll, Akhtar said he feels like slapping Sehwag for his cheeky comment. “Kabhi kabhi man hota hain maarun ise (sometimes I feel like slapping him).” His comment made everybody laugh and showed that the tension and rivalry are all on the field and these are nothing but friendly banters between them.
