Is there anything in the world that can be taken seriously by Virender Sehwag? Whether it is congratulating fellow players on their birthdays, debating or criticise anyone on Twitter, the Nawab of Najafgarh knows only one way and that is trolling. The former swashbuckling opener has carved his own niche on Twitter with his unique and humorous style. And the latest person to get a taste of Sehwag’s humorous nature is Indian wrestler Sakshi Malik, who won a bronze medal at the recently concluded Rio Olympics.
Throughout the Olympics, the former opener was seen cheering the Indian athletes through Twitter and even suggested the Government to felicitate the medal winners in a grand style. As expected the athletes were overwhelmed by his support and Sakshi Malik took to Twitter to seek an appointment for an undisclosed reason with Sehwag.

As expected,Sehwag replied in his trademark style. Viru, as he is fondly known, while obliging to Malik’s request, requested the wrestler not to fight with him once they meet.
Sure ,will let you know the time. Hope you won't start wrestling with me, Sakshi ☺ https://t.co/XTau8YTnEd
