Lesser Known Facts
In 2011, Sehwag rested himself after winning the 5 matches ODI series against WIndies in 2011 and gave a chance to Tiwary. He scored unbeaten 104 in that innings and was awarded Man of the Match.
He initially stunned everyone for his ability for leg spin but later preferred batting.
A 90's born who has witnessed Sachin becoming "The God", Dhoni becoming "The only Captain to have won all the ICC trophies" and Kohli turning into a "run-machine". Cricket is something I am crazy for and I try to deliver the best and true I can in my every writing.
