It all started with Sehwag’s tweet, as the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) Head of Cricket Operations wrote this on his Twitter handle:

In reply, Tendulkar praised Sehwag’s tweets, calling them as magical as his batting:

Both Tendulkar and Sehwag — two names that cricket fans idolise around the globe — have a massive presence on the social media. Both share a terrific record together in ODIs — in 114 innings they have scored 4,387 runs in partnerships — seventh highest in ODI history. Sehwag and Tendulkar’s partnership includes 13 100-plus stands and 18 50-plus stands. Their highest stand is of 182 for the first wicket.

For now, Sehwag is busy with the ongoing edition of Indian Premier League (IPL), where he is marshalling the KXIP troupes from behind the scenes. Tendulkar, meanwhile, continues to associate himself with various social causes and at the same time, awaits his film’s release on May 26 this year.
