It's the season of reunions. Former India batsman Virender Sehwag sent Indian fans down memory lane with his tweet on Thursday as he reunited with master blaster Sachin Tendulkar and his former Captain Sourav Ganguly in the commentary box during the ICC World Cup 2019.
Posting an image of the famous trio while commenting on the World Cup opener between England and South Africa, he captioned it ‘together again’ and accompanied it with another image of the three from their playing days.
Together again !🌸 pic.twitter.com/QGR2091DS7— Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) May 30, 2019
While Ganguly has been doing a commentary stint for the last few years after hanging up his boots, Thursday marked Tendulkar’s debut with the microphone. The trio of Tendulkar, Ganguly and Sehwag formed the core of the team which reached the finals of 2003 World Cup, only to lose to Ricky Ponting's Australia.
The photo, naturally, got the Twitterati talking. Some simply relived the good ol' days, some were reminded of their childhoods, while others got busy captioning the photo.
Lovely snap ...Thank you again for life time memories ... Love the trio— Sachin Tendulkar f© (@Sachin_rt_200) May 30, 2019

Tendulkar, who compared the experience of his commentary debut to the experience of playing his first match when he was just 16, also invited a lot of reactions. He also posted a photograph with former cricketer Harbhajan Singh, who is also performing commentary duties in England.
