The bonhomie shared by former Indian cricketers Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar is quite electric, not just on, but off the field as well. The explosive opening duo on Wednesday engaged in a friendly banter on Twitter, leaving people in splits. This time the ‘Najafgarh ka Nawab’, who has recently become the fan boy of trolling, showed exactly how to stump ‘the master’.

Sachin had posted a tweet congratulating the Indian team for comprehensively defeating New Zealand and achieving an unassailable 2-0 lead in the ongoing Test series, to which Sehwag pulled a short leg.

Sehwag butted in, asking for an occasional word of appreciation for the commentators too from the ‘God Ji’.

Tendulkar, mentor to the Mukesh Ambani-owned IPL team, Mumbai Indians, replied with a ‘Jiyo’ (May you live), perhaps, not realising that ‘Jiyo’ is a homonym of ‘Jio’, the 4G service recently launched by Ambani’s Reliance Industries.

Not the one to miss a gap, Sehwag spotted the room and sneaked the ball right through, proving it again why he deserves the ‘master troll’ tag.

Sachin tried to duck the bouncer, but we will give it to Sehwag for this innings.

Here are some of the gems Sehwag has pulled off on Twitter

Flicked it right over the deep third man !
