December 3, 2009 3 comments

Virendra Sehwagh blasts like a fully loaded machine gun and most importantly all bullets on perfect target.

Virendra Sehwagh unbeaten 284 off 239 balls ( 40 boundaries and 7 Sixes  ) his sixth double-century as India finished day two of Third Test on 443-1,  a lead of 50 runs.

6 Double Centuries and 2 Triple Centuries in his 72 Tests span like an extra ordinary achievement. He is the first Indian to hit 6 double centuries,  Rahul Dravid having 5.

Second Day of Third Test:

Sehwag reached his century off 101 deliveries, and his second 100 was achieved in just 67 deliveries. He played the innings with Attitude, Veeru said his dismissal on 131 in kanpur’s second test charged him ”  I missed the big knock in the last Test. I didn’t want to miss out this time. I just wanted to hit the bad balls”.

About  Muralitharan, he said ” He  is a big challenge to face; rather than wait for him to dominate I wanted to dominate him.”  Sehwag is happy with the track he said “it is excellent track to play and it would be good to bat on tomorrow, and  we definetly take advantage of it.”

Third Day:

Virendra sehwagh failed to become a first 3 triple centurion. He failed to cross 300 run mark so to make one more record. He got out on 293.

Match and series summery:

India won the match with 1 innings margin and won the series 2-0, so India reached at top position in Test ranking.

Virendra Sehwag  is the Man of the match and Man of the Series.
