fastest century

Virender Sehwag hooks the ball to the boundary against New Zealand in the second Twenty20 international cricket match at Westpac Stadium in Wellington, New Zealand, on February 27.

“Virender Sehwag is a primal talent whose rough edges make him all the more appealing.” This is what Cricinfo says about Sehwag. But doesn’t u think the time has come to sharpen up these rough edges a bit. 24 of 10 balls and then holing out to mid-off . Now by no mean any disrespect to NZ bowlers, but I feel that for a batsmen a wicket is a holy grail , it should be earned , not to be thrown away , be it any form of cricket Test , ODI , T-20 , Hong Kong super Sixes or whatever . But why the hell in the world he can’t realize that simple thing , especially so when you open the inning and the whole world knows that if Viru stays for 15 overs he guarantees himself a nice chance to get his average up and India a wonderful opportunity to win.

Simply speaking there should be a method in madness, he should be made to realize that bhai you are not a normal person , you have an extraordinary talent , you are damm important to Indian Cricket, all the opposition captains in the world know that, why don’t u try to bring a bit of rationality into your batting , and yes trying never kills.Ohh I am feeling a bit relieved now , (old Gandhian principal of taking out your frustration ) anyway I still feel that India will win the ODI and the Test Series pretty comfortably , they have got too much talent and skill to lose out on that .

Sehwag smashed Kiwi bowlers in the 4th ODI between New Zealand and India and got his hundred off just 60 balls, the fastest by ay Indian in ODI cricket. He completed his hundred in a superb fashion hitting a six in the ball of Daniel Vettori and making his score 103 in the 19th over. This is the 11th ODI hundred for india.

Sehwag remained not out on 125 off 74 balls hitting 6 sixes and 14 fours as India won the match by D/L method.Just 1 ball before Sehwag completed his hundred, Gambhir made his 50 off 52 balls. At that stage India were 164/0. Sehwag's hundred is of course the fastest by any Indian but also the 7th fastest ODI hundred. Before this Mohammad Azharuddin had got his hundred in 62 balls.

This is really amazing batting and he sholud remain atleast till the world cup 2011 and this time we should get the world cup.Sachin is there so there are many chances are there to win the cup.I hope we will get.
