Virender Sehwag surprised fans on Twitter with a photo of India’s scoreboard against Pakistan in a test match in 2006. He also continued to confuse everyone with an “interesting” question and asked them to “indicate” the answer. The test match in Lahore saw a high-scoring draw, with rain ensuring only 14 balls were possible in the final as the curtains fell on a record-breaking encounter. Flyhalf Sehwag slammed 254 from 247 and Rahul Dravid went unbeaten with a 128 from 233 as India hit 410 for one in 77.2 overs.
Initially, Pakistan declared after posting 679 for seven in 143.3 overs with Younis Khan, Mohammad Yousuf, Shahid Afridi and Kamran Akmal snapping tons. Younis recorded 199 of 336 balls, Yousuf managed 173 of 199 balls. Meanwhile, Afridi hit 103 of 80 balls and Akmal hit 102 of 81 balls, remaining undefeated.

Posting a picture of India’s batting order, Sehwag asked fans, “Forget the scoreboard, a very interesting thing about this Indian 11. Can you point it out?”
The batting order consisted of Sehwag, Dravid as openers, followed by VVS Laxman, Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Yuvraj Singh, MS Dhoni, Irfan Pathan, Ajit Agarkar, Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh. Here is the photo :
Reacting to the question, one fan replied, “Just a spinner in Harbhajan.” Sehwag replied, “Haha, nahi yaar.. Anil Bhai gussa karenge…India’s greatest match-winner in Test cricket”.
Meanwhile, another fan said, “Singh is written differently,” to which Sehwag replied, “Haan yaar, yeh toh socha hi nahin.”
Another fan said: “Everyone has at least a century + a wicket in Tests / Internationals.”
The January 2006 test match was the first of a three-match series. Shoaib Akhtar was the only Pakistani bowler whose economy was below three in the match. Meanwhile, Anil Kumble and Ajit Agarkar bagged two wickets each for India and were the most successful bowlers.
