Virender Sehwag, former India opener and current coach of Kings XI Punjab, has carved a niche for himself on social media with his witty and hilarious posts. On Wednesday, Sehwag was at his witty best once again inventing a new name for Kings XI player and birthday boy KL Rahul, who turned 26.

While the initials KL in the Karnataka batsman’s name stand for Kannaur Lokesh, Sehwag replaced them with ‘Kadak Ladke’ while extending birthday wishes to the youngster on Twitter.

Sehwag wrote in his tweet.
