Virender Sehwag (viru ) is one of the leading batsman in the Indian cricket team. He is an aggressive right – handed opening batsman and an occasional right-arm off-spin bowler. His performance led India to 418 for 5, their highest ODI total and sealed victory in the five match series against West Indies on December 08,2011.
It was an innings characteristic of Sehwag’s approach to batting. He was playing very well with no tension. He hit his second balls for four and simply did not stop. He went to 50 off 41 balls, to 100 off 69 balls, to 150 off 112 balls, and past 200 off 140 balls and 219 off 149 balls. His 219 had 25 boundaries and seven sixes as he smashed the West Indian bowlers all over the park to help India post 418 for 5 in 50 overs.
Virender Sehwag became only the 2nd batsman in history to score a double century in a one- day international following Sachin Tendulkar, who made 200 against South Africa in Gwailor last year. Now Virender Sehwag is the highest ODI run scorer in the Cricket World.
