Virender Sehwag remembers singer Kishore Kumar as his ‘hidden batting partner’

 Virender Sehwag once again paid rich tributes to Kishore Kumar on the singer’s 88th birth anniversary on Friday

That Kishore Kumar was one of the greatest singers ever produced by India is a known fact, and modern-day cricketers from Virender Sehwag to Mansi Joshi and even Sunil Gavaskar have all remained infatuated with the voice which has mesmerised millions for years

On Friday, on the occasion of Kishore Kumar’s 88th birth anniversary, it was none other than Sehwag who took to Twitter to remember his ‘hidden batting partner’.

Chala jaata hoon, Kisi ki dhun me, Dhadakte dil ke taraane liye
After all, on his way to a record double century — first of his career in ODIs and second overall after Sachin Tendulkar — Virender Sehwag’s batting partner Suresh Raina had revealed that he was humming a Kishore Kumar song as he demolished the West Indies bowling attack at Indore to score a flamboyant 219.
“He was playing very well with no tension. That day, he was singing some Kishore Kumar songs. He was not feeling any kind of tension,” Raina said at an ‘India Today Youth Summit’.
Virender Sehwag was back to singing and batting at the same time sometime after his retirement, as he was heard singing ‘Chalaa Jaata Hoon’ while playing for Sachin Tendulkar’s Master Blasters in the All-Star Cricket league held in US a couple of years ago.
