Virender Sehwag: The explosive Team India opener that would send shivers down the opponent bowlers. The critical man behind several success stories of the team, Viru exercised monumental feats in a match that would get the whole stadium up on their toes. A decade ago, he did the same in Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium.
In the test against Sri Lanka on 4th December 2009, Sehwag scored a blistering 293 off just 254 deliveries. The official Twitter of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) rolled back the years and posted a clip showing Viru’s highlights from that match.
