Now it’s 2019, I am having the same feeling. 30 years down the line. I have a microphone in hand, not a cricket bat. Looking forward to it,” he was quoted.Virender Sehwag also shared two pictures on his Twitter account. He captioned it “Together Again!”. All three cricketers can be seen having a chat in both the images, the left from their playing days whereas right one from the commentary box.Together again !
