Mumbai, May 31: It was all about Virender Sehwag on the social media last night and today after the former India opener blasted a 58-ball 122 for Kings XI Punjab.
Sehwag's vintage hundred gave KXIP a 24-run victory over Chennai Super Kings in Qualifier 2 of IPL 7 and a ticket to the final.
Many present and former cricketers used Twitter to salute Sehwag for his sensational knock.
Sehwag's KXIP teammate Glenn Maxwell said he was still in awe of "the great man". Maxwell batted with Sehwag for few overs last night.
Another teammate, David Miller, calling Sehwag as "Viru Sir", hailed his special knock.
Here are the reactions from cricketers on Sehwag's knock.

It was a matter of time before @virendersehwag got the big one. Luckily he reserved it for the big game. It's always good to see you score.— Sanjay Bangar (@ImSanjayBangar) May 31, 2014
