Hopefully, all cricket fans around in the early 2000s know Virender Sehwag in one word. Not only that, he is the inspiration of today’s youth international cricket players. Even today he stands as the dream inspiration of aspiring cricketers from many small towns. This man is more than enough behind bringing many trophies to India.
On the other hand, Virender Sehwag is famous as the most widely destructive opener in the world. Anyway, he is a former cricketer of our Indian international cricket team. Who in a word ruled cricket from 1999 to 2013? There has come a time when hearing the name Virender Sehwag scared his opponents

Virender Sehwag Physical Stats:
He had the ability to crush his opponents with extreme fitness while standing in the field. Neither was there a trend of doing so much gym nor was there a trend of any kind of physical force. Even so, he was extremely physically fit to play cricket in those days.
|Height||5 feet 7 inch |

Early Life and Careers:
Believe it or not, he broke his teeth while playing cricket as a child. And seeing this, his father wanted to quit playing cricket that day. Fortunately, if Virendra’s mother had not stopped his father that day, we might have lost such a well-known cricketer. Anyway, the most important years of my life were before 1999.
Because this year his debut in international cricket is again against Pakistan. And unfortunately, his debut performance was abysmal. As a result, he does not get a chance to play any match for the Indian team for the next 20 months. Although he used this whole time to hone himself and make a sharper sword on the table. And so when he got a second chance in 2000, he didn’t waste it and took India to victory by three wickets.

Personal Life and Education:
Virender gave importance to cricket in his life as well as he gave extreme importance to his studies. But unfortunately, he was not academically gifted at all. As a result, his family hounded him when he turned to cricket. He completed college and graduated but he turned towards cricket in the end.

10 Facts about them:
When Virender was in Delhi for training, he would ride a Bajaj scooter.
You might not know that Sehwag was banned for over-applied in a Test match when he debuted.
He is the only Indian and the third player in the world to score two triple centuries in Test matches.
On the other hand, there are some people who are very happy with only one food. Similarly, if you give only Kheer to our beloved cricketer he will love it immensely.
Meanwhile, Virender Sehwag holds the record for the fastest century in Test cricket.
Sehwag has a nickname which is Nawab of Najafgarh.
He was named Sultan of Multan in 2004 when he completed the triple century of Multan.
In the 2011 World Cup, Virender became the only cricketer in the World Cup to hit a first-ball four in five matches.
Sehwag fully believed that he would take the field and break the confidence of the opponents. And that’s why he used to destroy the confidence of the bowler by hitting boundaries on the first ball.
We all know Virendra is bald and that’s why he got a hair transplant.
Money factor: Salary and Endorsement Fees:
Even after retiring from international cricket or what domestic cricket matches he has, he earns quite well. Not only that he also received 5.7 million USD from BCCI. He also took Rs 13 crore as a coaching fee in IPL. After all, Sehwag’s brand value is huge as most of his money comes from brand endorsements alone.
|BCCI salary||5.7 million USD|
|IPL Coaching fee||13 crores|
Relationships and Family:
Virender’s wife’s name is Aarti Ahlawat. And surprisingly Sehwag’s wife is his childhood best friend and love. Of course, when he got established he didn’t forget his childhood love. You might not believe when Virendra first met his wife he was only 7 years old and Aarti was only 5 years old. The first pillar of a love story begins from then.
|Sisters||Manju & Anju|
|Affairs||Aarti Ahlawat (from childhood)|
|Sons||Aryavir & Vedant|
As I have said before, when it comes to a player, controversy follows itself. However, Virender though there are no such huge controversies there are some controversies that are definitely worth noting. As fans can understand that there was a time when there was a cold war between Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Sehwag. But no one knows why the warmth of their relationship is so cold.
However, his support for playing cricket from home did not work much. Nevertheless, Sehwag was not afraid to go against all odds and follow his dream and choose cricket as a profession.
|2002||Arjuna Award for Cricket|
|2009 and 2008||Wisden Leading Cricketer in the World|
|2010||ICC Award for Test Player of the Year|
As with any controversy, any injury stays with the players on the field. For example in 2008 an injury badly affected Sehwag in a crucial match. In fact, while preparing for the game, Sehwag picked up a slight strain in a muscle in his right calf. And this entire incident took place in the Asia Cup final against Sri Lanka. I hope you understand that Virendra is out of this match because of his injury.
