Rajkot: Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag produced yet another gem in the commentary box during 1st India-England Test being played at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium.

On the opening day of the first Test match, Sehwag, who has revolutionised Hindi commentary for the cricket fans, started off with a bang.

After the dismissal of English skipper Alastair Cook, Joe Root, one of the modern day greats came to the crease.

Fully aware of the damage he can cause across formats, Sehwag said Indian bowlers needed to dismiss him at the earliest. Once Root got his eyes set, the Delhi dasher said, "Is Root ki sabi liney vyast hain."

Earlier, Alastair Cook won the toss and opted to bat first.

After a couple of lifelines by Indian fielders, Cook finally perished in the 16th over, when he was declared lbw off a wrong decision. (ALSO READ: With 279 runs off just 77 balls, Delhi's Mayank Rawat might well be India's next Virender Sehwag)
