Explaining the incident, Sehwag also paid tribute to Aryabhata — inventor of the digit Zero — in a funny way.During India’s tour of England in 2011, the visitors were whitewashed 0-4 in the Test series and in the third Test match in Birmingham, Sehwag, who did not play the first two matches, was dismissed for a duck in both the innings.While Stuart Broad dismissed him in the first innings, James Anderson accounted for his wicket in the next one.Recalling the incident, Sehwag tweeted: “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).”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.
