yes! in the 4 th odi against NZ shewag have broke yet another record. He was going at fantastic phase and reached his century in only 60 balls braking the record of azhurdin(62). now in the quick list for india shewag (60) azhurdin (62) yuvaraj(64) raina(66) and three of those players are in current indian team. i think there is lot more records will be broken soon.

It was fun. Every time I would come to my PC I would hear crowd cheering a boundary and I rush to my TV room. Then when I return to my PC again there was cheering on a boundary. Then I thought I guess this is a special day for Sehwag. I should miss this moment and decided to watch him play. And so I was able to watch live the fastest century by an Indian. And Sehwag did bring it in style with a sixer. I hope Sehwag breaks records in test match as well. If he scores another triple century that will be a new world record for most number of triple centuries by any batsman.

Yes It was a great knock by Sehwag. I think he was angry with rain and showed his anger in this way. lol Good shot selection and perfect timing is necessary to score such a knock. Gambhir also supported very well. This team has many players who has potential of breaking some record. Sachin - Century, Yuvraj - Six Sixes, Dhoni - Successful Captain, Sehwag - Triple Century in Test and now this, Gambhir - Most Successful Indian opener since 2008. etc. etc.

i was actually a little surprised to find that mohd. azhruddin had the record for the fastest century by an indiam. although he was a very good player he was more of a laxman type player very elegant in his batting you couldnt have thoought he could hold such a record. but coming to sehwag i think he is the one guy who should be holding his record and also become the first batsman to make a double century as well. sachin just missed on that record in the third odi. i am sure he would have made it if he had not got injured.. but i hope sehwag does it for him

Sehwag is definitely in one of his best forms this year. He has definitely created fear in other teams with his superb and amazing batting performance. No matter who the bowler is, no matter what line is the bowler bowling, he smashes even the good balls over the ropes. And since the grounds in New Zealand are already so small, it has become so easy for him to hit sixes. No wonder, if the team India continues to perform this way, they will surely hop on to ICC Number 1 rating in One day and carry forward to win the World Cup in 2011. All the best !

Yes it was boom boom time. he was just picking up his spots and launching into his shots. The innings was not a purists delight but it achieve its objective of demoralizing the kiwi bowlers. Let us not forget that this very same attack gave a tough time to Aussies & were on a high after defeating Indians in 20-20. This innings had put the momentum for the test series in India's hand. India also sealed the series with this knock of shewags. What was really stood out was the concentration he showed despite the several rain breaks. This has to be the strongest batting lineup ever for India.
