Former Indian swashbuckling batsman Virender Sehwag is known for his incredible sense of humour. The former explosive batsman rarely shies away from entertaining his fans with his witty remarks on social media.

Following Argentina’s FIFA World Cup victory over France, a picture of the Argentine skipper Lionel Messi has gone viral in India. In the video, the superstar could be seen dressed in the uniform of a policeman.

Sehwag shared the viral meme on his Instagram handle with a hilarious caption. Sehwag wrote, “haha #messi #sarkarinaukri” in the caption of the meme which read, ‘If Messi was born in India..immediately after World Cup’.

It’s not a new thing for sportspersons to get government jobs after they make the nation proud on the international stage, something Messi did recently.

The 35-year-old scored twice in the final, recording seven goals in total at the tournament, as he led Argentina to FIFA World Cup glory for the first time in his career. Before the final, Messi had stated that he would love to end his international career after the World Cup. However, he has a change of heart after the match.

“Obviously, I wanted to complete my career with this, I can’t ask for more. Finishing my career this way is impressive. After this, what else? I have a Copa America, a World Cup. Almost at the very end I love soccer, what I do. I enjoy being part of the national team, the group. I want to enjoy a couple of more matches being a world champion,” Messi said after the FIFA World Cup final.
