Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag just smashed a huge six on social media site Twitter.

Before you get to guessing, the trailblazing opening batsman just reached 6 millions Twitter followers.

Sehwag took to the networking website to thank all his followers - that too in his unique style.

Sehwag wrote: 'Aap logon ke pyaar ne laga diye Viru ke Twitter par Chakka,6 million of you. Thank u to each one of you for ur love.'

The Delhi cricketer may have retired from the game, but his fans have not yet forgotten him, and probably will never.
