Amid all of the hoopla surrounding Sachin Tendulkar‘s impending century of international centuries, one of his teammates, Virender Sehwag, has been uncharacteristically silent. He’s not performed well with the bat and has been injured. But you can’t keep a swashbuckler like Sehwag quiet for long. In the last few moments, in the fourth one-day international with the West Indies at Indore in central India, Sehwag hit a world-record-breaking 219, with 25 fours and seven sixes, which means an astonishing 142 of his runs came from boundaries. Sehwag becomes only the second man to pass 200 in a one-day international cricket game: the first one was, of course, Tendulkar, who batted the entire 50 overs to reach 200 exactly. Sehwag was out before the end of the 46th over, which means he could have made even more runs. Yes, my friends, Virender’s well and truly back.
