Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag is the Twitter King who never fails to make an impression. Also, it’s very difficult to impress him, but when he is, he lets the world know – just as he did with ‘Messi Ka Chacha’. The former part-time spinner is always in tremendous form. His social media handles get more fans with each day passing. Currently, he’s got 17.5M followers, who look forward to his ‘Sehwagasm’.
Apart from cricket, the former batsman is also the chief mentor of Preity Zinta’s IPL team, Kings XI Punjab, and his advice is a million bucks.
Not just cricket, but Sehwag is a keen fan of football too. Currently, the 2018 FIFA World Cup is on and celebs like Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek are in Russia to enjoy the game. They watched France vs Belgium and shared images for their fans.
Abhishek Bachchan even shared this live video from inside the football stadium, during the semi-final match:
Like Virender, football crazy Bollywood celebs lost their cool when Germany exited the championship after losing to South Korea. Ranveer Singh even started a Twitter poll to know the reason.
What’s the reason behind this German loss?

The recently-divorced Arjun Rampal expressed his shock too:

When it comes to social media and sports, the legendary cricketer is a master. His birthday wishes for fellow colleagues like Sunil Gavaskar or funny memes are truly memorable.
Keeping up with the FIFA World Cup fever right now, an (old) man has left Virender very impressed. The avid tweeter instantly posted his football skills.
Captioning this video, he wrote, “Forget France, England, Croatia, here is the man #FRABEL.” In the short (30-seconds) video, the man skillfully prepares himself to kicks the football in front of him, into an adjacent house’s window!
Watch ‘Messi ka Chacha’ display his impressive skills here:

Of course, Messi needs no introduction. Lionel Messi or Leo Messi as he’s popularly called, is the most celebrated Argentinian football player in the world and also the captain of the team.
Virender Sehwag also shared the ‘Messi Ka Chacha’ video on his Instagram page, with the hashtag #MessikeChacha.
Just to understand why is Sehwag so impressed with Messi, you’ll have to check these pictures of the footballer’s (few) achievements below:
Finally, the most favourite t-shirt in the world!
