No one can forget the iconic moment when former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly waved his T-shirt on the Lord’s balcony following India’s win in the NatWest Series in 2002. Although Sourav Ganguly maintained it was done in the heat of the moment, it is widely believed it was an answer to Andrew Flintoff’s topless act which the England all-rounder did in India after his team won a match and levelled the ODI series 3-3. Today marks the 14th anniversary of that historic win, and undoubtedly cricketers who were part of that win could not stop but remember the victory fondly. Virender Sehwag, who scored 45 in the final, was on the balcony when Ganguly and the others celebrated the victory.

Referring to Ganguly’s topless act, Sehwag, who has become an active user of Twitter, tweeted about the famous win and compared Ganguly’s act like to that of Salman Khan, as the bollywood star Salman Khan is famous for removing his shirt. Virender Sehwag tweeted :
