Exactly 10 years ago Virender Sehwag earned himself the sobriquet of ‘Multan kaa Sultan’ as he blasted his way to 309 against Pakistan and became the first Indian to score a triple ton in cricket history.

Sehwag who was speaking to Kings XI Punjab’s official YouTube channel said that he always gets nostalgic when he reminisces about his landmark achievement and added that such moments were to be cherished and celebrated in his stellar cricketing career.

When queried about Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) buying him for a price tag of INR 3.2 crore, Sehwag said that he was looking forward to performing well in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 and hoped that he would justify his faith in the franchise owners.

Sehwag added that KXIP had an exciting bunch of youngsters in their line-up for the IPL and also maintained that he would try his best and play role of a senior member in the team.

Sehwag signed off by saying that KXIP were the team to watch out for in IPL 2014 considering the inclusion of players like Mitchell Johnson in their ranks and hoped for a good showing in the annual extravaganza.
