As the Nawab of Najafgarh turned 39, many cricketers took to social media and wished the former batsman in their own style. But, there was one wish that sent Viru out of the park. The wish was from his inspiration and cricketer legend Sachin Tendulkar.

"Happy birthday, viru! have a great start to the new year. you've always done ulta of what i have told you on field. so here's one from me?" said Tendulkar in his tweet.

Sehwag didn't take much time to reply to Sachin, whom he calls 'God Ji'. "Thank you God ji. Uparwala sab dekh raha hai, yeh to suna tha, par aaj samajh aaya, woh neeche waalon ke liye likhta kaise hai !," Sehwag replied.

Be it on field or off it, Tendulkar and Sehwag are known to share a close bond. They were involved in a partnership stands on 23 occasions.
