Yesterday the world has seen the true potential of Virender Sehwag through his Swashbuckling innings of 219.
10 years back, getting a century in a test was an awesome thing. Then Sehwag came and the equations changed in test arena and he proved that getting 300 is not a tough task with in 300 balls. It was at that moment I thought that if any one could score the highest score in ODIs, it would be either Sachin or Sehwag. Sachin for his technique, experience and perseverance. Sehwag for just one reason, his blitzkrieg.
I have been waiting for this innings for quite long now. He came pretty close against Bangladesh but couldn’t make it big. In midst of having a bad patch of career this year, he needed the much required innings to prove and stabilise his position in the team for the upcoming tours.
After three consecutive failures, yesterday was the right day for him to score well and take India home. He showed his natural flair in scoring the runs without giving any chances to West Indies team. He scored an amazing 219 which includes 25 Fours & 7 Sixes. I would like to see more and more such innings from Sehwag.
