Cricketer turned commentator turned Twitter sensation – Virender Sehwag is set to don a new avatar! After entertaining us with his flurry of sixes and boundaries, jaw-dropping wicket taking deliveries and stupendous catches; Sehwag will be playing the central character of a new web series that will be launched next week on Video on Demand (VOD) service - Viu.
After a successful cricketing career that saw his bat do the talking with 38 hundreds and 72 fifties across all international cricket formats; Sehwag made Twitter his new playground with his raw wit and humour replacing bat and ball. Be it his unique birthday wishes or being able to give as good as he gets (Ask Piers Morgan that!), Sehwag’s uninhibited style of play has continued onto the world of social media winning him a legion of followers.
His new innings in front of the camera for a web-series would give his ardent fans and admirers an opportunity to see this charismatic cricketer’s tongue do all the talking.
So what’s this show going to be all about? Will it be about upper-cutting your mother-in-law’s vicious bouncers beyond the boundary or playing the game of life with a straight bat?
Perhaps this photo teaser holds a clue!
Sehwag, who featured on cricket humorist Vikram Sathaye’s show ‘What the Duck’ on Viu earlier this year, will be back to entertain viewers of this digital platform with his tongue in cheek humour.
