Virender Sehwag knows how to stay on headlines on a daily basis. The former Indian cricketer is a famous name on Twitter who keeps on posting funny tweets regularly. Earlier today he came up with a self troll and then he showed his eagerness to be India’s selector.
The back story
Earlier a report suggested that Sehwag might apply for the role of Indian coach whereas back in 2017 the Multan ka Sultan had actually applied for the role. Indian cricket team selectors are often criticized for team selection. Recent World Cup has seen many such debates. Whether it is about preferring Vijay Shankar over Ambati Rayudu, or not picking Shubman Gill for the ongoing West Indies tour. They are often trolled for their cricketing knowledge citing their numbers.
Now, speaking about numbers, Sehwag is one of the biggest legends of Indian cricket. The 40-year-old played 104 test matches and scored 8586 runs and smashed 8273 runs in 251 ODIs. He was a useful bowling option as well and picked up 96 wickets in ODIs and 40 wickets in tests. His 19 T20I saw him scoring 394 runs with 2 half-centuries. Statistically, it is tough to beat Sehwag in the battle of cricket. But the selection panel is not always based on the on-field numbers. It does take other things into consideration as well.

A few minutes ago Sehwag posted, “Mujhe Selector banna hai… Kaun mujhe mauka dega? #theselector”. Although he didn’t mention about his team fans have started giving reactions already.
