IPL: Virender Sehwag vs Chris Gayle: This contest of record making-breaking is equally interesting
Ever since the beginning of the IPL season 8, a lot of write ups and opinions are popping up on the social media, advocating comeback of a few former Indian Cricketers in the Indian squad, particularly Yuvraj Singh and Virender Sehwag. Incidentally both of them have displayed their impressive batting skills during their last match.

Although, it is not fully justified to stake the claim based on just a few good performances but Virender Sehwag has defiantly shown his spark when he has overtaken none other than mighty Chris Gayle while playing in the IPL.

It has been observed by most of the fans that whenever Virender Sehwag gets back his good form, it is not difficult for him to improve any of his previous record or scale a new one.

The attacking opener of Kings XI Punjab has broken a very special record while playing against Delhi Daredevils. This happens to be a record of having most number of boundaries by any batsman in the IPL. With the help of his inning of 47 runs, he has got 438 boundaries to his credit in the IPL.

Earlier, firebrand batting star, Chris Gayle of Royal Challengers Bangalore was holding this record with 433 boundaries in the IPL.

Therefore, Sehwag has a figure of 332 fours and 106 sixes against his name whereas Gayle is standing in second spot with a total of 233 boundaries and 200 sixes.

It is worthwhile to mention that whenever both of them strike good, normally it proves to be a favorable equation for their respective teams. Both are bold, aggressive and play in almost similar fearless manner and are known for fast tracking the score for their team.

However, keeping in view the recent excellent form displayed by Gayle and equally good recent performance of Sehwag, it will be interesting to see as to which one of these two stalwarts will be able to keep this record against his name after the conclusion of this season of IPL. Both of them are a delight to watch.
