Virendra Sehwag mostly called as viru has achieved more than any one at all level of the games. He is the only batsman in Indian cricket history to score triple century in test cricket. He has achieved the feet twice.

The Delhi born cricketer has modelled his playing style on his idol Sachin Tendulkar. In 2004, he became the first Indian batsman to score a triple ton in an innings of a Test match.

He always uses to score freely whether it’s test cricket, ODI or T20. He has highest strike rate by far in test cricket. Virendra Sehwag brilliance has no word to describe, his strike rates in test cricket are far better than any other players who have played the test cricket. Sachin Tendulkar (12,917 runs at 54.73) has a strike-rate of 54.12, Ricky Ponting (11,400 runs at 55.88) scores at a rate of 59.41, Matthew Hayden (8625 runs at 50.73) got his at 60.10, and Brian Lara (11,953 runs at 52.88) at 60.51. Sanath Jayasuriya comes closest, with a strike-rate of 65.10, but his average is just over 40.

He also hit more double century than any one else Indian cricketers with six double centuries to his name. When he is on song he is very hard to stop can attack any bowling units on his day.

Any team Captain playing against Sehwag always like to have him back in the pavilion as quickly as possible.
