Chennai, Aug 11: Virender Sehwag redefined the role of Test opener during his illustrious international career. Now, after retirement he has changed the way of writing on the micro-blogging website Twitter.
When he batted, he gave a lot of joy to his team-mates and fans with his see-the-ball-hit-the-ball approach. Sehwag's writing style on Twitter has won him many supporters. They eagerly await to read what the "Nawab of Najafgarh" writes.
In recent times, Sehwag has ruled Twitter with his witty birthday wishes to cricketers. And he is enjoying his role to enthrall the fans just as he did while demolishing the bowlers on a cricket field. (Kumble on how he bowls to Sehwag if he is on 299)

After attending Tamil Nadu Premier League's (TNPL) event on Wednesday, Sehwag admitted it is exciting to get 1,000 retweets on Twitter than scoring a 300 in Tests or a quick ton in limited overs. Sehwag was present at an event where Madurai Super Giants launched their logo, jersey and anthem.
"Getting 1,000 retweets on Twitter. We were not allowed to tweet when we played cricket since we had signed the contract with BCCI," Sehwag said when asked what is more exciting - scoring a Test triple hundred or a breezy 100 in shorter formats.
