Virender Sehwag: What he said, really meant and definitely did not

Virender Sehwag Is An Old Man At 33

What he said (via Reuters):

"I’m very tired because I’m a 33-year-old. I’m an old man and my back and glutes are tight."

Virender Sehwag excuses himself from fielding after scoring an epic 219 in the fourth ODI against West Indies at Indore.

Sehwag said:

Everybody was expecting me to score a double hundred and I think I lived (up to the) expectation..

Whenever I wanted to hit a ball, I hit into the gaps and it went for four. Whenever I wanted to hit a six, I just tried to hit it with a straight bat.

I was telling myself and Gautam Gambhir that if we batted with a little patience, we could score a big one here.

Sehwag was grassed on 170 by his West Indian counterpart, Darren Sammy.

Sehwag said:

"When Sammy dropped my catch, I thought God is with me and God is telling me ‘just bat until 45th-46th over and you will achieve your 200’.”

What he really meant:

“Post this knock, I just have enough energy to sit on my a**—literally”

What he definitely didn’t:

“Next stop, the Mumbai marathon.”
