(MENAFN - Arab Times) Kuwait Cricket, the official governing body of cricket in Kuwait extends its open arms in welcoming the legendry Virendra Sehwag, the charismatic cricketer from India who is on a private visit to Kuwait. This mega event sponsored by City Clinic, a pioneer medical Institution has the full-fledged support & patronage of Kuwait Cricket, the apex body of cricket dedicated in the promotion of cricket in Kuwait. Anything said about Sehwag would be less as there is an air of expectancy when Virender Sehwag takes guard. For the millions of his fans across the globe and even perhaps for the opposition the thrill is continuous as the excitement of the previous delivery fuses with that of the next as his fearless and flamboyant stroke play amplifies the glorious uncertainties of cricket



Just about anything can happen!As Cricinfo states on his page, the bowlers must fancy their chances against someone like Sehwag. It is just that he fancies the bowlers more! His phenomenal international record is simply mind boggling for one who makes a mockery of traditional batting technique. Two triple centuries in Tests and a double in an ODI means this is no ordinary talent. Add to that his Test match 319 against South Africa in Chennai in 2008, was made at a better than a run a ball. He would have climbed another unprecedented peak if he had made a third triple which he missed by 7 runs against Sri Lanka



The 219 he made against West Indies at Indore in a 2011 ODI series was smacked at an incredible whack rate of almost 150! It stands as the highest individual score to date. It is for his genius for striking the cricket ball so hard and so consistently that he will be considered an all-time great. Therefore Kuwait will be proud to host this Great Indian sportsman. His presence will encourage the local players to embrace his brand of carefree batsmanship which is often the preferred style of play here



There is also an element of uncomplicatedness to Virender Sehwag's game that often draws accolades which also can be an inspiration. How often have we heard the experts say 'Keep it simple' and who else can be an embodiment of that very phrase? Kuwait Cricket can draw inspiration from and chalk a career path similar to Mr. Sehwag's. He started off as an irregular middle order hard-hitter and gradually cemented his place as animmensely successful, respected and entertaining opener.



Kuwait began as a sporadic performer on the international stage and has gradually been recognized as a cricketing nation. Now, the tiny oil rich nation stands on the threshold of creating a credible cricketing reputation. Welcome to Kuwait, Virender Sehwag. We cricket lovers admire your sporting character and we look forward to emulating your free spirited willow wielding in our endeavour to place ourselves favourably in this exhilarating world of cricket
