Virender Sehwag 

Born: 20 October 1978, Delhi
Major Teams: Delhi, India.
Known As: Virender Shewag
Batting Style: Right Hand Bat

Bowling Style: Right Arm Off Break


A hard hitting batsman and a more than useful off spinner, Virender Shewag made a disastrous debut against Pakistan at Mohali in the Pepsi Cup. After having got out for a single he was hammered for 35 runs in the three overs that he bowled. He was then short listed among the 19 probables for the 1999 World Cup in England but did not make the final squad. Shewag has been a mainstay in the Delhi Ranji Trophy team since the 1998-99 season. A powerful hitter of the ball, he aggregated 745 runs during the 1998-99 Ranji Trophy season with three centuries and followed it up with 674 runs in the 1999-2000 edition of the competition.

Shewag made a strong comeback to the Indian team during the Australia tour of India in 2000-01. In the first one-dayer at Bangalore, Shewag helped himself to a quick half century before scalping three crucial wickets to play a leading role in India's victory. Man of the match in the first one-dayer, Shewag was forced to miss the rest of the series with a fractured finger. But the last has not been heard of this stout hearted Delhi all rounder.

Sehwag's Double Century........... 
Virender Sehwag  / Virender Shewag
NEW DELHI: The starry-minded not to mention starry eyed would say swashbuckler Sehwag once again displayed a perfect 
sense of timing. Thursday was akha teej , the day you can do anything without consulting astrologers. Not just any akha teej , 
but apparently the most auspicious one in 70 years. And so,shaadi manaane ko Sehwag chala . But everything associated 
with Sehwag just has to be tempestous. And so, a downpour duly engulfed Delhi, raising fears that the season's most awaited
match-up might be a washout. This day, though, there was going to be no raining on the Nawab of Najafgarh's parade. 
Staff at 9 Ashoka Road Arun Jaitley's residence and the wedding's venue scurried around frantically. Fans of the pedestal kind 
were pressed into service; the maroon satin and golden tissue  curtains dried and hung up again. Picture-perfection was restored, 
the stage set for Jea Band from Red Fort to make a grand entry at about 9 p m, huffing and puffing away to the sonorous strains of Bolo 
Tara Ra Ra .The pandal at 9, Ashoka Road, Arun Jaitley’s residence and the venue of Sehwag’s wedding. More photos But wait a minute, 
where was the munda himself? Logon dhoondo dhoondo might well have been played at this juncture, except that the band had 
fallen silent. No, Sehwag hadn't been run out, just left behind somewhere in the course of switching over from the mandatory 
mare to a car. The waiting began. In between, BCCI chief Jagmohan Dalmiya walked in and wished the couple an unbeaten century partnership. 
Taaliyan, taaliyan . But still no sign of the groom. The band held its peace, only bursting into Aaj mere yaar ki shaadi hai when local BJP leader 
Vijay Goel marched in. Meanwhile, the guests gave the decor a dekko . Nothing too fancy: lights on trees, a tastefully decorated stage 
with golden drapes behind the thrones. The chairs were golden too,with maroon cushions, flanked by two dull gold pillars bedecked with flowers, 
prominently orchids, carnations, roses and birds of paradise, reportedly brought in from ThailandContrary to reports of five-star spreads, the food was mostly shuddh shakahari bharatiya bhojan with nary a foie gras or caviar on bline in sight, provided by Dass Caterers of 
R K Puram, who'd also catered the wedding of the bride's elder sister. The look-around was interrupted by a blast of music. 
Pretty Woman the Main Hoon Na version blared from the dance floor set up in the lawn. Shortly thereafter, at around 10 pm, 
Viru entered in a white Merc, wearing a colour-coordinated cream churidar kurta . He charged straight for the dressing-room. 
A quick changeover into a brown sherwani later, he was out on the ground, ready to begin his new innings. Guests with a 
sense of humour remarked upon the absence of a helmet. And the ceremonies commenced. 
All the hustle and bustle at night was a far cry from the subdued atmosphere at Sehwag's house in Najafgarh earlier in the day. 
Curtains were tightly drawn, doors and windows bolted, and umpteen policemen patrolled the house on all sides. 
There was a brief dance routine by cousins and friends. The moment the music started, curious neighbours thronged
the entrance and climbed onto the rooftops for a glimpse. A family visit to the local temple evoked a similiar response, 
with enthusiastic onlookers scaling the walls and cheering and clapping wildly. Viru didn't have a bat to raise in acknowledgment, 
but he did smile and wave, all the while cutting a dashing figure in grey sherwani and red bandhni turban. 
Sehwag Fastest Century Video from Rajesh Chopra
Sehwag Fastest Century Video
Virender Sehwag created history, by scoring the fastest ODI century by any Indian. Sehwag scored his 11th century off just 60 balls with 14 boundaries and 4 sixes. The previous record was held by former Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin, who had scored a century off 62 balls. Sehwag, who has been in tremendous form this season, batted explosively at Hamilton to reach the milestone.

Chasing a victory target of 263 from 43 overs, India reached 169/0 in 19.2 overs, when rain stopped play yet again. Sehwag was batting on 108, while Gambhir was on 50. the match reduced to 36 overs when the play resumed. India now need 220 runs to win the match and series.

India is leading the five-match series 2-0. If India win this match, they will win the series in New Zealand after a long long time. Sehwag became the only Indian to score 3 centuries on New Zealand soil.

Sehwag and Tendulkar pound Pakistan 
Multan, March 29 

Indian cricket changed forever on a hot, dusty Monday in this historic town. First, Virender Sehwag, that taciturn, unpredictable man who transmogrifies into a swashbuckling, unpredictable player, rewrote the record books by breaking the 300 barrier.

And then, stand-in skipper Rahul Dravid did what no Indian captain before him had probably done and, God knows, might not do again. He made a decision to declare with a player unbeaten on 194. The reasoning behind this apparently illogical decision was probably a brave one — he almost certainly put the team before an individual milestone. What made the decision so dramatic — and caused controversy galore — was that the man left stranded was Sachin Tendulkar.

It couldn't have been a more spectacular ending to a day on which records of every sort fell. The highest stand for any wicket against Pakistan, the highest individual score against Pakistan, the highest team total against Pakistan and finally, Laxman's epic 281, the highest ever score by an Indian batsman.

Sehwag, who began the day on 228, almost certainly felt that thing he says he never feels in life — pressure. It was a very unlike Sehwag-like innings that one witnessed on Monday. One full of shaky leaves, edgy starts that didn't materialize into runs, slow progression by his standards instead of the scoreboard streaming ahead in leaps and bounds.

He was twice dropped in the same over, in between which he got past Laxman and survived a run out by a hair's breadth. He went into lunch eight short of the magic mark, dawdled around for a while and then suddenly, in characteristic fashion, slammed a six off Saqlain over mid-wicket to get from 295 to 301. It was almost 1pm.

Back to the declaration: Dravid's reasoning possibly was that every over that India got to bowl on the day would count towards winning. It is a bold logic that few in India - trained by a society that adulates individual achievements - would understand. Forget India, most in the Indian team do not understand the decision.

Sachin himself said he was disappointed at not getting 200 and had no idea the declaration was coming just then.

The Tendulkar drama almost overshadowed Sehwag's effort. But Sachin himself, Sehwag's boyhood hero, was unstinting in his praise. "The 300 was badly needed. Most countries had managed it and India somehow, never had. But Viru did it and it was a fantastic, fabulous effort. He's one of a kind".
