March 2012 | Virender Sehwag(Viru)-Indian Cricketer

Monday, March 5, 2012


Hi guys,it has been quite some time since i have posted about Virender Sehwag for all the Veeru's fans out there.Sehwag created history by breaking the record for being the Highest Individual Run getter in the ODIs by scoring 219 against West Indies.He scored 219 runs and became the second batsmen in the Cricketing world to score a Double Century in ODIs after Sachin Tendulkar.

In the process,Sehwag broke his Idol Master Blaster's record of 200 not out which was scored against the South Africa in Gwalior.Sehwag's 219 came in just 149 balls with 25 boundaries and 7 sixes in the Indore ODI.Interstingly both double centuries came in Madhya Pradesh from the two Indians. Sehwag could have been out before scoring his Double century,but he survived as the run out chances were missed in the early part of his innings and West indies Captain Darren Sammy dropped a sitter.

I was at my work place and since we had less work,four of us from our team went to my friend's home to see Sehwag's innings.I was pretty much confident that Viru would hit Double Century.But my friends were praying that Sehwag should not hit 200 as Sachin's record would be broken.When Sehwag hit the ball over extra cover i had my heart in my mouth for a moment but luckily Sammy dropped the catch.

I was shouting like anything and my friends were silent as the catch was dropped.Then Sehwag blazed away to get the Double century.After that we all were dancing and enjoying the moment.Cheers !!!!!
