Cricket stars Virender Sehwag, Shikhar Dhawan, Sachin Tendulkar and Anil Kumble among many others have wished their fans on Eid, hoping the year is filled with happiness, joy and prosperity. Virender Sehwag, who has established himself as a social media star after his cricketing career ended, took to Twitter to wish his over 10 million followers.
