THE " VIRU " SMASH !!!
Virender shewag created an unbeatable strong name in the record books as he overtuk Sachin's record of 200* in ODI cricket!!!
Virender Sehwag has become the highest scorer in one day cricket
with a swashbuckling 219 against the West Indies yesterday in the 4th
ODI at Indore. The double ton is only the 2nd in ODI history with the
first one scored by Sehwag's idol Sachin Tendulkar 22 months back
at Gwalior, just north of Indore. History was made yesterday as Sehwag
toyed with the bowling and hit good balls, bad balls whatever balls all
around the park. Since there have been only 2 double tons in ODI's so
far and that too by 2 team mates, comparisons are obvious. But whose 200
was better? Was it the destructive Sehwag or the sublime Tendulkar?
Opponent- Sehwag scored the double ton against West Indies whose
bowling attack comprised of Roach, Sammy, Narine, Rampaul, Russel and
Pollard. The fielding unit was ordinary with a few spilled catches and
misfields. Sachin Tendulkar scored his double against South Africa whose
bowling attack had Steyn, Parnell, Kallis, Van der merwe and Duminy.
The fielding unit was top class with tight fielding all the time. The
difference is clear. Sehwag's innings came against a rather sultry
opponent whereas Tendulkar's was against a tough bowling attack. So in
this respect Tendulkar scores over Sehwag.
Strike rate - Scoring a 200 in a 50 over game involves
mindboggling strike rates and boundaries. Tendulkar's 200* came in 147
balls with 25 fours and 3 sixes with a strike rate of 136. Sehwag on the
other hand scored 219 off 149 balls with 25 fours and 7 sixes with
strike rate of 147. Tendulkar reached the milestone in the 50th over
while Sehwag was through with his 200 in the 44th over itself. That
speaks volumes about Sehwag's ability to hit boundaries and the strike
rate was much higher than Tendulkar's. So here its Sehwag who scored over
RECORDS ARE MADE EASY BY THE INDIANS..... 200RUNS IN ONE DAY INTERNATIONAL HAS BEEN MADE POSSIBLE BECAUSE OF SCHIN'S MASTER CLASS AND SHEWAG'S DESTRUCTION !!!
Proud to be an INDIAN Supporter..... 418/5 becomes the highest total for India against any opponent !!!
Can shewag's record 219 can be beaten ???????
May be by GAYLE, MCCULLUM , WARNER , WATSON , A.B.DEVILLIERS ????
