Mind you, the former Indian cricketer made full use of the opportunity and in the sweetest way possible, made fun of Alastair Cook and Co.


Ravindra Jadeja, whose seven wickets on the final day, helped India thrash the English side by an innings and 75 runs, was India's hero of the day.

Sehwag just recognised it in an amusing way.


His first tweet was a simple one, congratulating Virat Kohli-led Indian team and an extra appreciation for Jadeja, for his 51 runs and 10 wickets in the fifth and final Test.


"Congratulations India on a great victory. This 4-0 is sweet. Great display by Jaddu," Sehwag tweeted.





The next tweet was completely unexpected where Sehwag asked Jadeja to send England some 'Laddu.' Here the former Indian opener used the word laddu (a round-shaped Indian sweet) because it rhymed with 'Jaddu' just to make his statement funny.

But, Sehwag was not ready to stop it there!





After Jaddu, Ladoo, the third rhyming word used by him was "kaddu.' (Pumpkin), comparing England's thrashing to cooking a pumpkin curry.


The series win, 4-0, was a massive achievement for the Indian team because India have won a five-Test series for the first time since 1981. So, in case you missed the winning moment in Chennai, watch here:
