New Delhi: Known as the ‘Nawab of Najafgarh’ during his playing days, Virender Sehwag has now emerged as the ‘Nawab of Twitter’ in the past couple of years. Not only does the former India opener post witty tweets nowadays, but also gets the better of banter exchanges.
After Sehwag trolled Ross Taylor a fortnight ago, the New Zealand batsman also upped his banter game, replying to the former India cricketer in Hindi on Twitter.
It all started when Sehwag praised Taylor for his innings against Virat Kohli’s Team India in the first ODI, calling the swashbuckling Kiwi ‘Darji’ which translates to ‘tailor’ in English.
However, what Sehwag did not see coming was Taylor’s hilarious response in English, giving him a taste of his own medicine.
Thanks @virendersehwag bhai agli Baar Apna order time pe Bhej dena so Mai Apko agli Diwali ke pehle deliver kardunga ....happy Diwali— Ross Taylor (@RossLTaylor) October 23, 2017
Taking on the banter, Sehwag lauded Taylor for his sportsmanship.
Hahaha Masterji , is saal waali patloon hi ek bilaang choti karke dena next diwali pe. Ross the Boss, most sporting :) https://t.co/FNpAwrWCB4— Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) October 23, 2017
The Kiwi batsman came up with another award-worthy reply.
Has your Darji not done a good job this Diwali 😜?— Ross Taylor (@RossLTaylor) October 23, 2017
Sehwag ended the banter on a good note by saying,
However, it did not stop there altogether as Taylor surprised his former Delhi Daredevils teammate once again. Post New Zealand’s win over India in the 2nd T20I on Saturday, the 33-year-old took to Instagram and resumed the banter rivalry.
The reply was Sehwag at his best, as he requested the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) to grant Taylor an Aadhaar card for his expectional Hindi skills.
