On this day in 2004, Virender Sehwag became the first Indian to win a triple test of the century, blowing up 309 tracks in Multan, Pakistan. Sehwag was a devastating batsman and left his mark wherever he set foot, and the former opening team of Team India did not bother to face the deadliest bowling in his time.

17 years have passed since today, ie. March 29, when India toured Pakistan. The intensity between the two rivals was already deep and the discoverer Sehwag planned to make it great.

In the first passes of the test match in Multan, Sehwag and Aakash Chopra opened for India’s Rahul Dravid management team and after Sehwag left, the opener did not stop as he continued to make history. He knocked out 39 fours and 6 sixes in his inning as he continued to make his triple tone.

Sehwag also took to Twitter to commemorate Memorial Day, reminding fans that four years later that day he scored 319 runs against South Africa.

Although facing an attacking unit consisting of Shoaib Akhtar, Mohammad Sami and Abdul Razzak, Sehvag stood high in Multan as he killed the hosts. Sehwag’s historic innings ended after he was captured by Taufeeq Umar during Sami’s delivery.

However, the shot did not stop after Sehwag left. Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar he was on a roll when he added his 194 * and fell six runs from his double tone. Tendulkar disturbed the bowlers with his elegant passes when he scored 21 fours in 348 balls, which he faced.

India continued to publish a total of 675/5 mammoths and announcements. They beat Pakitan with innings and 52 runs, while the hosts made 407 and 216. Despite Mohammad Yusuf’s tone, India knew they had the match in their hands after Sehwag’s heroism.

Sehwag’s legendary triple tone is not only historic, but also a bar for the upcoming batsman in the future, as the destructive and explosive batsman has written a different chapter in the history of Indian cricket.

Apart from “Fab Four”, which consisted of Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid, the Sultan created a different league of his own, as he was recognized as the winner of the match with his striking blows and will always come down as a player who changed course. of cotton wool in cricket test. The red ball game saw the greats play defensively, but the bowlers knew that when Sehwag came for the bat, the outcome of the match would change.
