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.
