New Delhi: Former India captain Sourav Ganguly’s shirt-waving act on the Lords’ balcony after India won the Natwest Series final in 2002 is a part of Indian cricket’s folklore. Fans and experts had different takes on the act but it would always be interesting to know what the other cricketers who were present on that balcony thought about Dada’s performance.

Among those who were present there was Virender Sehwag, who announced his retirement recently. Sehwag said he enjoyed the moment and gave a funny description of Ganguly’s famous celebration. Laughing throughout the narrative, Viru said he had seen Dada’s six-pack abs for the first time.

Former India opener Sehwag also described the victory over England in the final, where India chased down 326-run target, as his most special moment at Lords’ and added that he would never forget that win.

The 37-year-old swashbuckling batsman from Najafgarh in Delhi said he regretted missing out on putting his name on the Lords’ honour board – any batsman who socres a Test century at the ground finds a place on the prestigious board. Sehwag came very close to making it to the honour board in 2002 but missed out on scoring a century at the home of cricket after getting dismissed for 84 runs.
