Just like Sachin Tendulkar's company helped Virender Sehwag become a good batsman, Sehwag's company on Twitter seems to have changed Tendulkar. Good or bad, you decide. 

The former Indian cricketer Sachin came up with a tweet which anyone would mistake his Twitter handle as Sehwag's. 

Sri Lankan pacer Lasith Malinga turned 35 on Tuesday and wishes poured in for his prosperity on Twitter.

The batting great Sachin was among the well-wishers. He came up with a quirky wish. Sachin and Malinga have played for same Indian Premier League Mumbai Indians for longs. He attached the picture from their playing days and wrote, "When it came to batting against #LasithMalinga, I always said ... baal ko nahin, ball ko dekho (don't look at the hair, look at the ball). Happy birthday, my friend."

Malinga used to be one of the toughest bowlers to face because of his awkward bowling action. His sling-arm bowling action had troubled the batsmen a lot. 

The Sri Lankan bowling star has bagged 301 ODI wickets in 204 matches with an average of 28.92. In Tests, he has 101 and T20s, 90 wickets.
