Sehwag sees India through!

What an innings, Viru! A very un-Sehwag-ian innings, reminded me of the Test innings he played at Galle in 2008. A very sedate start and some patchy strokes gave way later to a match (and bonus point) winning innings. Strangely enough, Sehwag managed to average the innings out almost a run-a-ball.

Cheap Lankan tricks notwithstanding, that should have been a hundred!

    Indeed, what a marvellous innings it was! I was impressed too by th way he paced it. He took up the responsibility, becalmed the early panic, built a partnership with Raina first…knowing fully well that if he settled into his drive, the acceleration would be smooth and inevitable.

    Was worth watching…and I saw an almost complete match after a long time.

    When Sehwag starts smashing the bowlers the bowlers have no choice but to wear a helmet and look to escape from the ground.

    @SB, same here. I didn’t feel like switching channels or heading back to do my other work. It was good match to watch after a very long time.

    @GreyBlazer, very true! Nice to see you around here. Welcome!
