Watch: With Virender Sehwag once again in the spotlight for his exploits in the Road Safety World Series, there’s a chance to revisit him singing a song while smashing a six back in 2015.

That moment came during the All-Stars match between Sachin Tendulkar‘s Blasters team and Shane Warne‘s Warriors, with Sehwag regularly showing he still retains the skill to pull off his famous ‘see ball, hit ball’ approach.

His casual approach at the crease, and nonchalance while smashing bowlers is often brought up when discussing his batting. A prime example of that came in the 2015 All-Stars game when the Indian opener was heard humming to himself under the helmet while flicking South African legend Allan Donald for a six.

Sehwag himself posted the clip on Twitter a few years later, revealing how he used to sing while batting.
