Indore: Today, Indian batsman Virender Sehwag makes history by becoming the top scorer ever in an ODI and second cricketer after team-mate Sachin Tendulkar to score a double century in the fourth ODI against West Indies.
Sehwag smashed his way into the record books with his amazing 219, beat Tendulkar’s 200 not out against South Africa in Gwalior on previous year.
This outstanding achievement gives Sehwag the exclusive distinction of being India’s top scorer in both Tests and ODIs. He had scored 319 against South Africa in Chennai in 2008.
He faced 140 balls and strike 23 fours and six sixes in his marathon innings. Tendulkar had made his 200 not out from 147 balls.
Then, Sehwag strikes some more forceful shots, one four and a six, before ultimately getting out to a tired-looking shot off Kieron Pollard in the 47th over. He faced 149 balls and strike 25 fours and seven sixes in his 219.
