Sachin had congratulated Team India on Twitter after they beat New Zealand by 178 runs in the second test of the three-match test series at Kolkata. India bagged the series with a 2-0 lead and also reached the number 1 spot in Test rankings.
Sachin's Tweet read
A spectacular victory by Team INDIA & many congratulations on regaining the no 1 position in the world test cricket!! #INDvNZ— sachin tendulkar (@sachin_rt) October 4, 2016
His one-time opening partner Virender Sehwag decided to troll the maestro in a funny but respectful manner.
Sehwag's tweet read
Oh God ji, kabhi kabhi Commentators ko bhi encourage kar diya kijiye.— Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) October 4, 2016
Thoda Motivation mil jaayega . https://t.co/KOzAUL5gWi
Virender Sehwag was a part of the Hindi commentary team in the India Vs New Zealand Test match and thus he prayed for Sachin's praise.
Tendulkar came back with another witty tweet in reply to Sehwag's which read
Jiyo mere Lala....🤗🤗🤗Tathaaaastuuuuu!!!😜😜 https://t.co/whyq1pluGn— sachin tendulkar (@sachin_rt) October 4, 2016
The Nawab of Najafgarh, as Sehwag was popularly known, decided to continue the discussion and further tweeted:
🙏 Aashirwad me bhi God ji , apni IPL team ke Maalik ke brand ka zikr karna nahi bhoolte.— Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) October 5, 2016
Sahi me, Duniya hila dete hain aap God ji https://t.co/RA5eSbOpX7
The former Indian batsman intelligently played on the word 'Jiyo' which sounds similar to the brand 'JIO' owned by Mukesh Ambani.
The Indian business tycoon also IPL side Mumbai Indians which was formerly led by Sachin. The legend is still associated with the franchise as their "icon".
Sachin ended the conversation with a tweet which read:
Woh to apni apni soch ki baat hai. 🤔Tumhari soch ki alag, meri spelling ki alag …😊 https://t.co/BJMfmPsHH6— sachin tendulkar (@sachin_rt) October 5, 2016
As the two greats of the game were involved in friendly Twitter banters, Indians cherished every bit of this discussion
