Profile

Virender Sehwag has constructed an extraordinary career with a relentless quest, and a genius, for boundary hitting. With minimal footwork but maximum intent, he has piled Test runs at a faster pace than anyone in the history of cricket. Bowlers must always fancy their chances against a batsman who plays so many strokes; it's just that Sehwag fancies his chances against them much more.

Timeline
    • April 1, 1999
      A forgettable first bow
      • Makes his first appearance at the international level, as an allrounder batting at No .7, in a one-dayer against Pakistan in Mohali. The 20-year-old hardly looks athletic and flops with bat and ball
    • March 25, 2001
      Making a mark
      • His first game-changing performance at the international level comes in a one-dayer against Australia in Bangalore. A rapid half-century and three important wickets help snap Australia's run of 10 one-day victories
    • August 2, 2001
      Here comes the hard-hitter
      • Asked to open the innings in the absence of Sachin Tendulkar, to whom he is compared early in his career, he hammers a 69-ball century against New Zealand at the Sinhalese Sports Club to easily steer India to the target of 265 and a place in the final of the Coca-Cola Cup
