Sehwag has challenged his followers to decode the contact number of Sehwag International School through a cryptic Twitter post.

He has asked, “School ka number kya hai’, with some riddles, which once decoded will form a 10 digit phone number of his school, Sehwag International School.

The riddles are:

Gambhir’s score in 2011 World Cup final

David Shepherd on one leg

Two fat ladies

Yuvraj’s score in 2007 T20 World Cup Semifinal

Don Bradman in his last Test innings.

For the uninitiated, famous umpire David Shepherd had a habit of standing on one leg whenever he scored a nelson, 111, 222 or 333 during his playing days in England.



While some fans were clueless about the riddle, some actually solved it.

A Twitter user, Rinku Shakya replied --

Gambhir score 97

David Shepherd on One Leg is Nelson 111

Two Fat ladies 88

Yuvraj score in 2007 Semi Final against Aus 70

Don Bradman scored in last innings against India 0

So altogether the number is 9711188700

Another user, Smrutiraj Biswal wrote, “And the hint for Country code should be:- MS Dhoni's score in 2011 world Cup final.”

Some people even took the opportunity to convince Sehwag to allow their children admission in the school.

A user wrote, “My son's age is ‘Sachin Tendulkar's nervous 90s in test’ Years. His previous class marks was ‘your highest run in T20’ %. My budget for fee is ‘your total runs in test’ Per year. What are the chances of his admission?”

Sharing his score in the 2011 World Cup finals, which was a disappointing Zero, he went on to write, “Could have actually written my score in the 2011 WC finals in the last option instead of Bradman’s last test score.”
