Be it his tweets about Shobhaa De or his conversation with Piers Morgan, Virender Sehwag surely knows when to let the whip crack. But what happens when the ‘Nawab’ of social media gets a taste of his own medicine? Virender Sehwag tweeted an image of India’s legendary spinner and former captain, Bishan Singh Bedi, in his glory days. Sehwag captioned the image to wish the legend on his 70th birthday. Sehwag wrote, “Hpy Bdy to a man who did not bowl,but did poetry instead.A man who cheated batsmen with a cherry in hand @BishanBedi.”
Bedi played 67 Tests for India and took 266 wickets by being a master of deception and variation. But Bedi was quick to respond and corrected Sehwag. He helped him understand the difference between ‘cheating’ and ‘deception’. Bedi wrote, “@virendersehwag Thx Veeru..but just to clarify..I might’ve deceived batsmen in air or off wkt..but I never ‘cheated’ on Crkt ground..Cheers!”
