Kolkata: While Virat Kohli and his men are entertaining cricket fans with some quality cricket against the touring New Zealand side in the ongoing Test series, former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag is making sure there is no dearth of entertainment in the commentary box.

Sehwag, who has built a massive fan base on Twitter with his hilarious birthday wishes, is now leaving the fans in splits with some creative pun-liners from the commentary box.
On Day three of the second Test match, Sehwag responded to Cheteshwar Pujara's dismissal in trademark style.
The Saurashtra batsman was declared lbw by the umpire off Matt Henry's bowling, even though the replays suggested the ball would have missed the leg-stump. (Die Laughing! WATCH Virender Sehwag in an unseen behind-the-commentary box footage)
Reacting to the unfortunate dismissal, Sehwag said, "Zindagi Na Milegi Pujara."
He tweaked the name of Bollywood flick Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara which starred some big names like Hrithik Roshan, Katrina Kaif, Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol.
As expected, the cricket fans couldn't stop laughing after hearing another gem from Viru and Twitter was full of praise for the dynamic opener: (After Bishan Bedi's 'doosra', Virender Sehwag hits monster six on Brendon McCullum's birthday)
