Hours after India’s former opener Virendra Sehwag was inducted into the ‘ICC Hall of Fame’ – along with two others – by the International Cricket Council on 13 November, ex-Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly penned down an open letter to Sehwag, while cricket legend Sachin referred him as ‘partner in crime’.
Looking at the records, Sehwag played 104 Test matches in his career, where he scored 8,586 runs at an average of 49.34 and took 40 wickets. His highest score is 319, with 23 centuries and 32 half-centuries.
Sehwag also played 251 ODIs, where he scored 8,273 runs at an average of 35 and took 96 wickets. His highest score is 219, with 15 centuries and 38 half-centuries.
For T20Is, Sehwag played 19 matches and scored 394 runs with 2 half-centuries. His best is 68.
