Sachin Tendulkar is celebrated is as cricketer and good human being but many would now want him as friend as well. Why because he just gifted a BMW 7 series car to ace cricket icon Virendra Sehwag. The 38-year-old, famously known as the Nawab of Najafgarh, took to Twitter to post a picture of himself standing next to a swanky BMW 730 Ld, which is worth over a crore.
Sehwag and Sachin were India’s leading opening pair for a decent number of years, most notably in the 2003 ICC World Cup. Both the batsmen are known to have shared a warm relationship even after their retirement. When Sehwag hung his boots, Sachin called him a ‘true champion’ adding that he was an absolute joy to play with.
Sehwag has repeatedly stated that Sachin was an inspiration to him when he was the part of the Indian team and a good friend off the pitch.
Both Sehwag and Sachin have a glorious record together in ODIs – in 114 innings they have scored 4387 runs in partnerships – seventh highest in ODI history. Sehwag and Tendulkar’s partnership includes 13 100-plus stands and 18 50-plus stands. Their highest stand is of 182 for the first wicket.
