Virender Sehwag always had his typical batting style in his career and he has always ripped apart the opposition bowling in his own style. He was aggressive in approach and have never ever given a second thought to bringing up a hundred by hitting a boundary or a six.

According to Sehwag, Sledging is an important part of the game. Even the present Indian skipper Virat Kohli to is aggressive on the field. And it has been best from his part to utilise that for an urge to win every match in any situation.

“Sledging is an important part of the game but you should never cross the line. However, if there’s no sledging, there won’t be any enjoyment left in the game,” Sehwag told India TV during an exclusive chat.

Sehwag too recalled his old days of the game. The times he faced sledgingwhile playing against Pakistan in 1999.

“You can sledge about somebody’s technique, bowling action or batting stance but it should not get personal,” Viru said. “I think it is Virat Kohli’s aggression which comes out during his celebrations. You can’t call it sledging. And when somebody from the opposition sledges him, he gives it back and it is necessary to give it back. But I feel it should be controlled aggression,” he added.
