Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag, who is very active on Twitter, trolled himself on Monday on his social media account. Recalling an incident that took place in 2011, Sehwag also funnily paid tribute to Aryabhatta - the inventor of zero. 

During India's tour of England eight years, the visitors were whitewashed 0-4. In the third Test at Birmingham, the opener was dismissed for a zero in both the innings, with Stuart Broad dismissing him in the first innings and James Anderson getting him out in the next. 

Going back to the incident, Sehwag wrote, "On this day 8 years ago, I scored a king pair vs England in Birmingham after flying for 2 days to reach England and fielding 188 overs. Unwillingly paid tribute to Aryabhatta. If there was zero chance of failure, what would you do? If you have it figured, do that (sic)."

India were dismissed for 224 runs in the first innings with England scoring 710 in the first innings in reply. India were bowled out for 244 in response and England won the game by an innings and 242 runs. 

Sehwag retired from international cricket in 2015, after playing 104 Tests, 251 ODIs and 19 T20Is.
