Sterling is Sehwag’s fan
Paul Sterling but early in his career he has been a fan of Virender Sehwag. In a conversation with the International Cricket Council (ICC), Paul Stirling recalled the days when he used to try to play like Sehwag. Paul Stirling said, ‘I probably would have liked to see two batsmen play, one was Damien Martin, it was nice to see him play. The eyes were relieved. The player whom I will never be able to repeat the game is Virender Sehwag. I loved his game on the off-side and tried to repeat a lot of his shots, though not very well.
