Sehwag

Retired India batsman Virender Sehwag has developed a habit of wishing other cricketers in his own unique style. The former opener has been able to carve his own niche on social networking site twitter and has earned quite a reputation with his witty posts.

On Wednesday (July 27), Sehwag continued his tradition of wishing cricketers in a witty manner. This time, former South African cricketer Jonty Rhodes, who is arguably the greatest fielder the game has ever witnessed, was in line to face Sehwag’s trademark birthday wishes.

Wishing Rhodes in his own exceptional way, Sehwag compared Rhodes with Udan Khatola, which is a fictional flying vehicle in the traditional Indian folktales, for his fielding exploits.

Posting  a picture of airborne Rhodes, Sehwag said: “Hpy Bdy @JontyRhodes8 who while fielding gt confusd&literally playd’Chidiya Ud'(Bird Fly) #HumansCanFly
#UdanKhatola”

Meanwhile, Rhodes is celebrating his 47th birthday today. Known for his unbelievable and consistent fielding performance, Rhodes intimidated batsmen from the backward point with his brilliant and athletic fielding. Before retiring in 2003, Rhodes represented South Africa in 52 Tests and 245 One Day Internationals. The right-handed batsman scored 2532 runs in Tests and 5935 runs in ODIs.

Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
