a century to remember...

by straight point

before you correct me by saying it wasn't a century... let me counter in advance by saying that you are in a way supporting that act of randiv...

more than the deliberate attempt of randiv to deny it... in fact had he thrown the ball out of the boundary he would have looked more innocent... i will remember this century for the way it was achieved...

sehwag from the very beginning looked like he was on some mission... he played the balls on merit and never tried to manufacture a shot out of a good ball... for once he respected conditions... bowlers bowling good balls and more importantly being the senior most batsmen of the team he showed remarkable restraint throughout the innings and yet he scored a run a ball century!

this just goes to show, as yours truly has been arguing at various platforms for some time, that those who think that the only way sehwag plays is to just attack and dominate from the start... ought to keep the dvd of this innings of sehwag and vow to never ever comment on this aspect of sehwag's game till he/she watches cricket...

This knock confound people who thought Sehwag is a brainless biffer.

a DVD of this innings should first be given to Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma... hopefully, it might be of some help to them!

SP,

i think i heard this somewhere that the only reason viru got agigated about the incident is that he wanted the century as it was played in gavaskaresque sense.

another matter that the hundred actually came up in 100 balls.

may be it could be said to have been played in the tendulkaresque sense!
