Virender Sehwag is not someone who is mainstream. Even after his retirement from cricket, he is known to send out birthday wishes to people, in his own quirky style. Harsha Bhogle, MS Dhoni and Kevin Pietersen are among the many who have been lucky enough to get birthday wishes on twitter from the "Nawab of Najafgarh" himself.

The latest one to join the club is our very own Ishant Sharma. The lanky fast bowler celebrates his 28th birthday today, and staying true to his style, Viru did not miss a chance to wish his former Delhi and India teammate.

Baal Waale Burj Khalifa. The "Sultan of Multan" makes it look as easy as a slash over backward point. Try as hard as you can, you won't come up with a better nickname for Ishant Sharma.
