Virender Sehwag was at his wittiest best in 92.7 Big FM’s promotional event

Former India cricketer Virender Sehwag has been making headlines with his commentary stints ever since he announced his retirement. Like he entertained with his wooden blade, he has been amusing the audience with the mike as well. In 92.7 Big FM’s promotional event, Sehwag was at his wittiest best. As the Father’s Day is approaching, Sehwag did not shy away from sharing his experience of fatherhood. “When I was dropped in 2000, I had nothing to do but change my son’s diaper,” said Sehwag. And, when asked about who’s the batsmen from the current generation to hit the ball as powerfully as he did, Sehwag simply kept nodding and wittily dodged the question by saying, “Next question please.” Read: Virender Sehwag eager to watch Mohammad Azharuddin’s biopic ‘Azhar’

Team India’s swashbuckling cricketer Virat Kohli has been taking the cricketing world by storm of late with his outstanding batsmanship. “Kohli is the most dangerous T20 player. And it’s unfair to compare Kohli with Sachin Tendulkar, as they both come from different eras,” added Sehwag.

A number of biopics are being made on India’s talismanic cricketers such as Tendulkar, MS Dhoni and Mohammad Azharuddin. When asked about a biopic on his life, he plainly replied, “Bollywood hasn’t offered me anything as of yet.”

“I made fellow cricketers laugh on the field in my playing days. Likewise, I thought I can amuse people with my commentary as well. And I got a very good response from everyone when I commentated in the ICC World T20 2016,” Sehwag said on his new role as a commentator. “Especially, the one-liners such as, ‘Goli se dar nahi lagta, Kohli se dar lagta’ and ‘Hathi ki size ko, boss ki wife ko aur Nehra ji ki advice ko saara desh salaam karta,” boasted Sehwag. Virat Kohli should not be compared to Sachin Tendulkar, feels Virender Sehwag

Of late Sehwag has been busy sharing his school of batting with Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). Though the team failed to put up a good performance, Sehwag is optimistic of the team’s success. About the change in captaincy, Sehwag said, “Murali Vijay has a good cricketing brain. Hence, we replaced David Miller with him.”

Sehwag was bombarded with commentary questions by the journalists yet again. “Commentary was as easier than I thought. But I found make-up and picking the right dress the most difficult,” concluded Sehwag.
