New Delhi: Swashbuckling former India opener Virender Sehwag has always been in the spotlight for his witty comments on micro-blogging site Twitter. His latest victim was James Anderson after the England pacer bagged a King’s Pair in the second Test against India.
The pacer was out for duck on the first ball in both the innings. He was out leg before wicket – by R Ashwin in the first innings and then by Jayant Yadav in the second. He thus became the first England player to bag a King’s pair in Tests in the last 100 years.
The former India opener had himself got a King’s pair on India’s Tour of England in 2011. In the third Test at Edgbaston, Anderson got Sehwag out in the second innings, while in the first innings he was dismissed by Stuart Broad off the first ball.
Five years later, Sehwag got his sweet revenge.
Using the hashtag #KarmaBites, Sehwag tweeted, “Jimmy Anderson made me pay tribute to Aryabhatta by getting me out for a King pair in 2011. Today,he too got a King pair.”

However, James Anderson took the jibe in sporting spirit and posted an emoticon in reply to Sehwag.
