What goes through the mind of Virender Sehwag when tweeting

#2 The metaphor and the hashtag

After deciding about the person and the occasion, Sehwag pulls out something interesting from his bag of thoughts that he can compare to that personality. He would use their name, their physical appearance, their style of playing or even the way they talk and then metaphorically display his wit and humour.

Shining examples of these are referring to the tall Ishant Sharma as #BaalWaleBurjKhalifa, the ever smiling George Bailey as #Hansmukhlal and as deep and bizarre as using ‘#YorkerBaba’ Malinga’s hair in place of juna - the scrubber for cleaning utensils. Such phrases and titles to sum up personalities are unique to Sehwag and no one can ever predict anything that he comes up with.
