With the beginning of India‘s long home Test season, the lost touch of Hindi commentary is also back, especially after Virender Sehwag entered the commentary box from the second Test of the ongoing series between India and New Zealand. The best part of the Hindi commentary comes when Sehwag is with his former teammate VVS Laxman in the commentary box. Sehwag doesn’t miss any chance to troll his friend Laxman, irrespective of the topic. Sehwag has already been famous for his witty nature and he became popular for his commentary skills after taking the job of commentary for the first time during ICC World T20 2016.

Recently, while having some fun during the commentary in the ongoing third Test against New Zealand at Indore, Sehwag asked Laxman what was his biggest regret as a cricketer. Laxman modestly said that there was no regret and in fact it was a great pleasure for him to represent the nation for 16 years in which he played more than 100 Tests. Sehwag instantly responded to his answer by saying that he is not satisfied and said that Laxman replied very diplomatically. Sehwag further revealed an interesting story about what Laxman regrets the most and added, VVS, I always wanted to score 400 runs in an innings in Tests. While I was batting at 319 (against South Africa in 2008), I had the opportunity. This is one thing I regret not being able to do. I am not like you where I would give a diplomatic answer and not reveal my biggest regret. I know it as you talked about it frequently.

Well, Laxman could not say much to this but again answered it very gently and said, Why ask such a question when you already know the answer Viru. Later, this discussion shifted to fastest hundreds scored by Indian batsman in Tests. The broadcasters played an innings played by Laxman where he scored hundred in just 114 balls against Australia. Sehwag once again instantly trolled Laxman by saying, When we talk about fastest centuries, the batsman is supposed to have scored it in less than 100 balls.

Sehwag himself scored third fastest ton in Tests in 78 balls, which came against West Indies in 2006. The other two fastest tons by Indian batsmen have been scored by Kapil Dev in 74 balls against Sri Lanka in 1987 and Mohammad Azharuddin in 74 balls against South Africa in 1996. The regret, however, which Laxman did not reveal, is perhaps not representing India at a single World Cup.
