Virender Sehwag wished Zaheer Abbas’ birthday

Sudipta / 24 July 2016

Indian opener Virender Sehwag once again wished another legendary cricketer’s birthday in a hilarious way. Sehwag has retired from international in 2015  after Indian selectors overlooked him for two years.

Sehwag wished former Pakistan great Zaheer Abbas’ a happy birthday. Abbas was a prolific wrist batsman who used to flick and cover drive that were beautiful. Abbas has created a genre for the batsman. There are many cricketers who followed his footsteps, among them Indian batsmen Mohammad Azharuddin and VVS Laxman are notable names.   Zaheer never hit the ball, his bat kissed the ball with superb timing and that made bowlers look like a pedestrian.

Zaheer has played 78 Tests matches for Pakistan.  He scored 5062 runs at ana average of 44.79.

Zaheer Abbas has an astonishing average against India. He played 19 matches against arch-rivals and scored 1740 runs at an average of 87. But Zaheer failed to emulate his own performance when he came to play in India. On Indian soil, he has only 28.45 average.

Opener Virender Sehwag  has more than  90 average. He also scored his first triple hundred against Pakistan in Multan.

On the other hand, Sehwag  did another tweet which was in praise for  Mohammad Shami. Indian pacer made a comeback in international cricket  since the 2015 World Cup semifinal against Australia. Shami has taken four wickets against West Indies in the first innings.  But Virender Sehwag was amazed by Shami’s bowling so he wanted the bowler took six wickets.
