Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag had some smashing partnerships during their playing days. It was not for no reason that they were referred to as a dynamic opening duo in one-dayers. But, off the field too their cracking chemistry continues.
Of them Virender Sehwag is known for his street smart posts on Twitter, very much like the vibrant knocks he played during his international career. Tendulkar too must have been aware of the same, since he himself is very much active on the social networking site. Tendulkar is many years senior to Sehwag. But, that did not stop Viru from taking a ‘dig’ at Sachin ‘paaji’.
The beginning of the story was when Sachin tweeted a congratulatory message to the Indian team on their victory at Eden Gardens in Kolkata over New Zealand, which gave them an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
A spectacular victory by Team INDIA & many congratulations on regaining the no 1 position in the world test cricket!! #INDvNZ— sachin tendulkar (@sachin_rt) October 4, 2016
Sehwag, at his cheeky best, replied that commentators like him too need encouragement. He was actually one of the commentators in the match.
Oh God ji, kabhi kabhi Commentators ko bhi encourage kar diya kijiye.— Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) October 4, 2016

To this, Sachin responded in kind.

But, Sehwag bowled him another googly
🙏 Aashirwad me bhi God ji , apni IPL team ke Maalik ke brand ka zikr karna nahi bhoolte.— Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) October 5, 2016
Sahi me, Duniya hila dete hain aap God ji https://t.co/RA5eSbOpX7
Sachin though had an equally witty reply
Woh to apni apni soch ki baat hai. 🤔Tumhari soch ki alag, meri spelling ki alag …😊 https://t.co/BJMfmPsHH6— sachin tendulkar (@sachin_rt) October 5, 2016
Well, they may have retired from international cricket, but on Twitter, they remain master blasters...
Twitterati joined in the fun as well...
