Sehwag, who is known for greeting sportspersons in witty oneliners, greeted the left-arm orthodox spinner from Saurashtra Jadeja in a similar fashion.
Apart from sending his best wishes to the southpaw, Sehwag trolled Jadeja to cut the cake with the knife the way he swings his bat, in sword style celebration.
Jadeja has developed a penchant for swinging his bat the way a warrior wields his sword.
This is what Sehwag had to say:
Jadeja has emerged as an asset to the Indian cricket team with his all-round efforts. With the ball he's Ravichandran Ashwin's deputy and a force to be reckoned with on Indian pitches. The southpaw has also improved as a better batsman in the lower-middle order.
Jadeja was awarded Man of the Match in the previous Test match against England at Mohali for his contribution with bat and ball. He scored crucial 90 runs in the first innings for India and also took four wickets in the game. Jadeja is also one of the best fielders in the side.
Wishing him a happy birthday and a prosperous year ahead.
