They both have retired from all formats of cricket but still then they remain in the news, and that too for all the right reasons. Shoaib Akhtar and Virender Sehwag were known as great rivals on the field, Akhtar then’s fastest bowler and Sehwag then’s power hitter batsman always tried to take on each other, which was always a fantastic encounter for the cricketing fans.
But now the scenario is totally different, they have turned best friends, Akhtar himself has claimed that his previously rival is now his best friend. Both the stars of Pakistan, India also played together in Cricket All Stars and shared some memorable times.
As we know that friendship is all about ‘fun’ or ‘trolling’ each other, Sehwag doing that extended an Mauka-Mauka message on Twitter for the Speed-Star, whatever Shoaib Akhtar replied, shows that it was part of their ‘bromance’.
