Virender Sehwag to gift his sons Ferrari if they go past his 319

Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag, who owns the top three highest individual scores for India in Test cricket, has a special gift in store for his young sons when they grow up. However, there’s a condition here, quite a tough one by all means. He wants them to go past his highest score of 319 in any form of cricket.

The swashbuckling opener, who recently retired from international cricket and was seen in action during the Cricket All-Stars League, was felicitated by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for his contribution to the Indian cricket before the commencement of the fourth Test between India and South Africa at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi.

While chatting with commentator Harsha Bhogle after the felicitation, he said, “I have told my sons that if they score more than 319 in any form of cricket, I will gift them a Ferrari.” The statement came in reply to a question asked by Bhogle. It will be interesting to see whether Sehwag’s juniors will take up this challenge and more importantly, take up the sport. Sehwag continues to play for his domestic side Haryana in the Ranji Trophy.
