Mendis to Sehwag, SIX, That is the first six against Ajantha Mendis in Test match cricket. You could see he was itching to jump out. He reached the pitch of the off break and swung it over the cow corner

India 57/0   V Sehwag 31* (36b 3x4 1x6)   BAW Mendis 1.3-0-12-0

Vaas to Sehwag, SIX, What a guy! Sehwag clears up the front leg and swings a full length delivery around the off stump over wide long-on. And he is on 97 now. Almost as if the lengthy rain break never happened!

India 163/0   V Sehwag 97* (84b 14x4 2x6)   WPUJC Vaas 9.2-0-44-0

Mendis to Sehwag, SIX, Almost caught at the long leg boundary but the fielder tripped over the ropes. Sehwag had cleared his front leg and went for a big sweep. He top edged it and Chamara Silva backpedaled, and stepped on the ropes when he was about to catch and ended up clanging the catch

India 269/4   V Sehwag 162* (151b 22x4 3x6)   BAW Mendis 15.1-1-85-2

Mendis to Sehwag, SIX, charged down the track, moved outside leg stump and sliced a googly straight down the ground. It looked like he was hitting towards long-on but the bat came down in an angle and he sliced that.

India 301/6   V Sehwag 180* (183b 22x4 4x6)   BAW Mendis 20.2-1-104-4
