The player of the cricket world, who sacrificed his career to stop Sehwag's century.
Former India's explosive batsman Virender Sehwag was in bad shape when he was at the crease. This cricketer has hit 136 sixes in his ODI career. During this, he scored 15 centuries.
But do you know that there was a match in which Sehwag hit a score of 99 but he could not score a century. Yes, today we are going to remind you of such a match.
On 16 August 2010, India were playing ODI matches in Dambulla under the tri-series against Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka batting first scored just 170 runs. After this, the Indian team started to bat also did not start well and their three wickets fell for just 32 runs.But despite the pressure, opener Virender Sehwag continued his natural game. He smacked the Sri Lankan bowlers.
The result of which was that Virender Sehwag, playing a stormy innings, had brought India very close to the target.
In the 34th over of the match itself, the Indian team had scored 170 runs and equalized the score made by Sri Lanka.
After which the Indian team now needed only 1 run in 16 overs to win and Virender Sehwag was present at the crease by scoring 99 runs at that time.
Incidentally, Sehwag was still on strike at that time and he had a chance to win India by scoring 1 run and complete his century.
Sri Lankan bowler Suraj Randeep deliberately bowled the next ball no-ball on which Sehwag rode a six but India got 1 run due to no ball. In this way Sehwag remained unhappy with scoring a century.
Sehwag was chosen as the 'Man of the Match' for his unbeaten innings of 99 runs and he was also titled to a century.
Career was over forever - He was banned for one match after the embarrassing act of Sooraj Randiv.
But after this incident, the Sri Lankan Cricket Board showed great displeasure with him and never gave him a chance to play in the Sri Lankan team again.
