New Delhi: Virender Sehwag's second innings has so far been as interesting as his first.
The former India opener has taken to Twitter like a fish to water. His trademark so far has been the customized birthday wishes.
Viru wishes members of the cricket and sports fraternities in his inimitable style.
Humor is the key ingredient of Viru's tweets, which have taken the micro-blogging site by storm.
On Thursday, he decided to troll columnist and author Shobhaa De after Haryana's Sakshi Malik won a bronze medal at the Rio Olympics.
De had earlier criticized the Indian Olympic Games' contingent, terming its trip to Rio as a 'waste of money and opportunity'.
She came under severe criticism for that remark from the public as well as athletes - past and present.
After the news of India winning its first medal in Rio trickled in, Viru trolled De in typical style after a parody account of his posted this tweet.
