Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag on Friday lauded Laxman for his wonderful contribution to Indian cricket.
The destructive opening batsman while replying to Laxman’s tweet termed the middle-order batting great as ‘one of the nicest guys’.
Laxman had shared a photo of Sehwag as part of an initiative he announced earlier in which he would be paying tributes to teammates who had a great influence on his life and career.
Laxman heaped praise on Sehwag for his self-belief and positivity and labelled him as one of most destructive openers in the history of the longest format of the game.
“Cocking a snook at those who questioned his pedigree against high-quality fast bowling, @virendersehwag went on to establish himself as one of the most destructive openers in Test history. Viru’s immense self-belief and positivity was as mind-boggling as it was infectious.” tweeted Laxman in Sehwag’s praise.
In response, Sehwag said,” You have been a great friend and made such wonderful contribution to Indian Cricket and are one of the nicest guys, Bhrata.”
