Virender Sehwag’s Record Breaking 219 [Infographic]

Virender Sehwag has always had a game suited for ODI Cricket more than Test but for some inexplicable reason he seems to play big innings in Test matches more so than ODIs.

Yesterday, Sehwag decided to do some catching up and not only with a fantastic hundred but a double hundred. He broke Tendulkar’s 200* which was the world record before.

Here is a infographic I made about Sehwag’s journey to the world record-breaking 219 runs.

Hopefully Sehwag takes this murderous form to Australia where India will play a test series starting 25th December 2011.

Sehwag ‘Upar Cuts’ Bangladesh for a Six!

Bangladesh were probably hoping for a repeat of the 2007 World Cup. They had beaten India and knocked them out of the tournament. Back then they had bowled first and restricted India to a modest total.

Similar thoughts might have been going through the Bangladesh team’s minds when they won the toss and put India to bat.

Unfortunately they ran into Sehwag, who literally hit their hopes for a six. Sehwag score 175 runs of 140 balls. He also hit 14 boundaries and 5 sixes.
Below is a video that inspired the title of this article! 😀

Don’t you think he is the most destructive batsman ever? Do drop in your comments.
