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

December 8, 2011 3 comments

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.

When Sachin Tendulkar scored his 28th run in first test against West Indies he became the first cricketer in the history of cricket who scored 15000 runs in test cricket.

He reached that marked in 182nd test and seems nobody near him.

He has already hit 51 centuries in Test and 48 centuries in One-Day format. Now fans are waiting for his 100th century.

Sachin Tendulkar: Perfect Role Model for Country

April 5, 2010 10 comments

Sachin Tendulkar is in his best form of his carrier whether it is Test cricket, one-day or 20-20.

He is been consistent, aggressive, physically fit and most importantly his feet are down to the earth even though he is on cloud 9.

He has been improving his excellence every day; He is more aggressive, fierce now still playing classy shots.

He is been hitting Centuries, Fifties, Double centuries consistently in all form of games.

If you have observed his game nowadays, you might have noticed, many time he step out of crease, and if bowler try to make him fool by bowling bouncer or out of off stump, in that situation also he place the ball in gaps, that’s really awesome.

He runs in between the wickets like swift-running Cheetah, in his 40’s he is running like 20 year aged runner.

The way he fielding and diving on field like Leopard, If you remember how Sachin Tendulkar dived full-stretch to prevent the boundary in last over of first one day versus South Africa (February 21, 2010), Indian own that match by 1 run. IPL 3 – Kamal Catch award won by Sachin Tendulkar versus Deccan Chargers.

He is not only role model to follow, to get inspiration but he is a Perfect Epitome Role Model. Currently he is the Perfect Role Model for every generation. I am using word “Perfect Role Model” because he is having all the best qualities, abilities together; he is real gem and so epitome. He is passionate about his game, he enjoys every moment of his profession. His dedication, hard work, sincerity towards his game makes him to deliver success consistently and so he is not only successful in his career but he is at top in his profession. Still he is down to earth. He respect his game, country, his fans. He is very much honest, loyal regards to cricket, country, family and his fans. His fame, popularity never allows him to be awkward.

Sachin Tendulkar is great human being to admire.
