Virender Sehwag conceited to break Sachin's feat

Posted by Admin On 12:03 PM

Virender Sehwag says the chance to score an ODI double ton comes once in a lifetime and he never predictable to get there. He also broke his role model Sachin Tendulkar's record. Sehwag smashed 219 off just 149 balls in the fourth one-dayer against the West Indies on Thursday, overtaking Tendulkar's victorious 200 last year to become the highest individual scorer in an ODI.

I am happy to have broken my role model, Sachin Tendulkar's record. It won't be easy for people to score double hundreds. Over the last so many years only two have done it. This opportunity will come only once in a duration and I am happy I have taken it,Sehwag told the media persons at the post-match press conference.

I never expected to score a double hundred. While opening the innings, I told Gautam Gambhir that if we can show some endurance on this track, we will be in for a big one as the wicket is a good one. The outfield is fantastic and the distance of the boundary is only 50 yards,Sehwag he added.

The dashing opener said once the batting power play started, the thought of reaching double hundred crossed his mind.It was only after the batting power play started, I felt that I could reach double hundred. Also when Sammy dropped me (at 170), I knew that God was with me,Sehwag stated.

He thanked his family and thousands of fans who had always had the anticipation that he can score a double hundred in ODIs.I want to thank my family and fans. I know people expected me to score a double century.he said.

Sehwag said that he was determined to make amends for a string of poor scores in the first three ODIs. He added:I have said this earlier also that the top-order needs to contribute. It was a wicket where one could score big runs if he stayed around for 30 overs.

The historic knock certainly seemed to have taken a toll on Sehwag as he smiled and said:Obviously, I am very tired.I am an old man now and my back gets stiff. So I need to take an ice bath,he said. Sehwag enthusiastic the epic knock to the memory of his late father.I am very happy and I dedicate this knock to my father who is no longer with us,he said.
