The Legend Of Sehwag: Celebrating The Anniversary Of Both His Triple Hundreds On The Same Date

Virender Sehwag, is known as one of the greatest openers in the history of Indian cricket.

Despite the format he played in, he always had a unidirectional approach to batting; and that was to hit the ball beyond the fence.

Test cricket was known to be a slow game in India, especially with the legacy of the likes of Sunil Gavaskar. Then came Sachin Tendulkar who brought about a change in the outlook of the audiences towards the longest format of the game.

But the real revolution was brought about by the 'Sultan of Multan,' scoring 23 hundreds and amassing 8,000-plus Test runs at an average of just a shade under 50.

One of the best moments of his career was when he scored his first triple hundred in Test cricket against arch-rivals, Pakistan in 2004. His knock of 309, including 39 boundaries and six sixes, made him the first Indian to score a triple hundred in Test cricket, surpassing VVS Laxman's 281, the then-highest score by an Indian batsman.

As cosmic as it sounds, his next triple hundred too came on the same date four years later, when he crossed his own personal best by posting 319 against South Africa at Chennai, which was made up of 42 fours and five sixes.

On Friday, the same date of 29th March, Viru felt the nostalgia of both his incredible scores and shared his happiness with his fans.

29th March- A date which has ended up becoming special for me. On this day in 2004, I had the honour of becoming the first Indian to score a 300 in Test Cricket, scoring 309 against Pak & 4 years later on the same date got an opportunity to surpass 309, while scoring 319 vs SA ð pic.twitter.com/Wyik8NEskl
