Virendra Sehwag, the unpredictable star batsman of Indian cricket, the Nawab of Najafgarh, showed his utter disdain for the West Indies when he clobbered 219 runs to overtake Sachin Tendulkar.
VIRENDER SEHWAG enjoyed every moment of his stay at the crease in Indore during the 4th ODI against West Indies. He walked to the middle accompanied by his New Delhi opening partner Gautam Gambhir and, within a few minutes sized up the situation.
The batting track was a beauty as was the ground and he had opted to bat after winning the toss. His inability to score runs in the three previous matches must have been worrying him, therefore, he got into his element and let loose. Known as a temperamental batsman, he delighted his fans not only at the Holkar Stadium but all those who were watching him in action via the TV telecast.
He got his 219 runs (25 fours and 7 sixes) from 149 balls while Sachin had got his 200 not out in Gwalior in 147 balls. With this achievement, Indians now hold the record for two double centuries in ODI.
