The quirky Sehwag today posted a tweet that spoke about India’s tour to England in 2011. “On this day 8 years ago, I scored a king pair vs England in Birmingham after flying for 2 days to reach England and fielding 188 overs. Unwillingly paid tribute to Aryabhatta. If there was zero chance of failure, what would you do? If you have it figured, do that,” Sehwag tweeted.

It was clearly a self-deprecating Tweet. Indians had a bad time in England in the test series and Sehwag was absolutely out of form. It was the third test match of the four-match series between India and England in Birmingham. Sehwag after missing first two matches made a comeback in the third match only to register bad memories. It was Stuart Broad in the first innings, whereas in the second innings he was sent back to the pavilion by James Anderson. The Indian team were bundled out for 224 runs in the first innings and England went on to score a mammoth 710/7. Sir Alastair Cook’s recorded a mesmerizing knock of 294 runs. Even in the second innings, the visitors were all out for 244 runs and eventually lost the match by an innings and 242 runs.
It was a 4-0 whitewash by the hosts that most of the Indians do not like to recall. But Virender Sehwag is totally one of a kind and likes to make trolling posts on social media. He recalled this day and moreover, mentioned about Aryabhatta. He said that it was his unknowingly paid tribute to the great Aryabhatta, the discoverer of Zero.
