On Michael Clarke
Michael Clarke, who has been nicknamed ‘Pup’ by his Aussie teammates, wasn’t spared by Sehwag either.

Hit the ball
The Sultan of Multan, who took apart great fast bowlers like Glenn McGrath and Brett Lee with ease, was once asked by an interviewer on how he hit such furious fast bowlers to the boundary repeatedly. Sehwag came up with an extremely witty reply saying, “I don’t hit the bowler, I hit the ball.”
After the 2011 World Cup, his career seemed to be almost done as he wasn’t getting picked to the Indian squad. An interviewer said to him, “You may never play for India again!” to which Sehwag replied, “Well, whose loss is that?”
