I remember watching that test match against South Africa where he made his test match debut when he batted along side Sachin Tendulkar while both of them scored centuries. I was amazed by the stroke play duing that 2-3 hrs.. truely it was very tough to say for sure who was who. They looked so similar and played even more similarly..
Now as the time has gone by, he has become the vice-captain on Team India but he is yet to leave his carelessness while batting. The triple century(309) he scored in the first test of 2004 - India vs Pakistan series was breathtaking one and even surprised Sachin Tendulkar who batted with Sehwag for quite some time. And probably that why this time Pakistan has chosen Faisalabad in place of Multan. But that dosen't seem to change the master stroke maker as he scored 254 in Lahore and we can surely expect few more dazzling innings from him.
The best thing I like about him is the way he plays Spinners. As he is an opener for quite some time now, by the time the slow bowlers come into the attack, he recieves all of them with both hands. I remember watching him make 195 in a single day at Melbourne and the way he played Struat McGill that day. Recently Shahid Afridi said that he was aiming for six sixes in that Harbhajan over in first test at Lahore, I am sure Virendra Sehwag can do it some day as well.
As the Pakistan series is dominated by Sehwag, England team, which soon be landing here in India, have already started to take notes and they should. They better be prepared - either to dismiss him early or fetch the ball..
I hear he has opened a Restaurant in Delhi recently, exactly like Tendulkar in Mumbai and Sourav in Kolkata.. I wonder why these cricketer open Food parlours only. Why not make a cricket stadium??
