Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar were a nightmare for bowlers when they used to open together for India. With their dominance, the duo sent many bowlers on a leather hunt. Not just on the field, Tendulkar and Sehwag have shared a great relationship off the field as well. Sehwag, who idolises Tendulkar and calls him 'God Ji', wished the India batting legend on his 45th birthday in his own style. "Woh sirf ek Cricketer nahi, Duniya hai Meri ! aur bahuton ki. Many more happy returns of the day to a man who could stop time in India (literally) .Thank you for making the Cricket Bat such a great weapon, which later many like me could also use. #HappyBirthdaySachin," Sehwag's tweet read.
