Former Indian opener and now commentator Virender Sehwag is known for his off-the-field statements and social media statements since he retired from international cricket. He keeps hitting the headlines with his tweets and posts that are quite out of the box and different from the regular stuff.

He came up with a similar kind of X-post while remembering the great warrior Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj on his birth anniversary. Sehwag came up with a tweet in which he is denying an age-old proverb in a unique style while remembering the great warrior.

“History tells us that powerful people come from powerful places. History was WRONG. "Powerful people make Places powerful", Tributes to the great Chhatrapati #ShivajiMaharaj on his Jayanti. Jai Maa Bhavani,” wrote Virender Sehwag in a post from his official X handle (formerly Twitter).

Here’s a look at the tweet from Virender Sehwag for Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj:

Talking about cricket, Sehwag was seen in the commentary panel of the recently concluded ILT20 in Dubai, alongside the former legendary Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar. He made it to the headlines after he and Shoaib Akhtar were seen in the outfits of Arab Sheikhs on the day of the final of the tournament.

Speaking of Sehwag’s contribution to India as a cricketer, he was a part of the World Cup-winning Team India on two occasions; firstly, the T20 World Cup 2007 and then the ODI World Cup 2011; the men in blue won both the marquee international tournaments under the captaincy of former legendary skipper MS Dhoni.

Virender Sehwag played a key role in India’s journey in both tournaments; he was known for his explosive batting skills which also got him two triple centuries in the Test cricket against Pakistan and South Africa, respectively.
