New Delhi: Former India opener Virender Sehwag was known for his swashbuckling batting style during his playing days. But post retirement, he has shown the fans his humorous side by posting witty tweets on Twitter.

And after India defeated Australia in the fourth and final Test in Dharamsala, Sehwag congratulated the victorious Indian team in his own cavalier style.

Sehwag gave away 'Viru Gharelu Awards' to the Indian and Australian cricketers on his Twitter handle @virendersehwag.

He called Australian captain Steven Smith 'Tubelight' and Indian captain Virat Kohli 'Holder'. He also called Wriddhiman Saha 'Channi', Peter Handscomb 'Joon Kangi', Umesh Yadav 'Sansi', Ashwin-Rahane 'Desert Cooler' and Kuldeep Yadav 'Exhaust'.

Pujara, who was the highest run-getter for India in the series with 405 runs, was called 'Inverter'.

Jadeja and KL Rahul were given the names of ‘Tullu Pump’ and ‘Stablizer’ by the former India batsman.
