Reminiscing the series against Pakistan in India, Sehwag recalled he sang at the request of Yasir Hameed. “When I used to play, no one would know that I sing songs while playing. But it has happened once during the India-Pakistan series, I was batting around 150 in Bangalore. Yasir Hameed was standing at short leg. He asked me ‘Viru bhai, you sing while batting as well’, so I told him, ‘yes, of course’. So he requested me to sing Kishore Kumar’s song,” Sehwag said during a chat show with CricbuzzLive.

“I used to sing too many songs while batting. But my favourite song was ‘chala jaata hoon kisi ke dhun mein, dhadakte dil ke, taraane lie.’ Because it was one song that I could sing irrespective of whatever mood I am in, and it would lift my mood. So, I entertained Pakistan cricketers with my batting, but also entertained them with my singing,” he concluded.
