Virendra Sehwag – Second Double Centurion in One day cricket, only batsman after Sachin Tendulkar

Veeru slammed 219 off 149 balls and become second batsman in one-day cricket history after Sachin Tendulkar

Only batsman who hit double century as a captain. Both double centurions from India.  

Fastest double century. Sachin Tendulkar took 147 balls to get 200 runs and Sehwag took 140 balls.

Sehwag hit the ball 7 times to six and 25 times to boundaries.

only batsman after sachin tendulkar

Virendra Sehwag lived up to fans expectations.  Hats Off to Veeru

Virendra Sehwag said “ I was telling Gambhir that if we are patient, we can get plenty runs here. The wicket was good, the outfield was fast and the boundaries were short. Genuine batting wicket, you just have to spend some time and carry on with the shots. I picked the gaps and when I hit sixes i keep the bat straight. Thanks to my family and friends. Our top order was not contributing and we needed starts. I never changed my style of play, I played my shots throughout, It was only after the batting powerplay started, I felt that I could reach double hundred. Also when Sammy dropped me (at 170), I knew that God was with me. I just wanted to stay till the 45th/ 46th over, I am 33 years now, I am an old man and my back is stiff, I will have an ice bath and try to get back on the field.”

double century in one day

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.
