 Virender Sehwag was in  awesome form and made an yet another double century on day 2.This helped India to reach 443/1 in just 79 overs.Sehwag is the only Indian batsman to have triple century against his name.That too he has two triple centuries to his tally equalling Brian Charles Lara's and Sir Don Bradman's record.
