Yes, in some terms it may be considered as the best innings in IPL ever, because he did it in extremely pressure. His team lost 4 within 40 runs wickets are there were uphill tasks ahead i.e. target was 170 something. There were another century in the next day by Chris Gayle, in 46 balls but it was not under pressure as there were 9 wickets remaining. The fastest ever ton in Twenty 20 was registered by Andrew Symmonds in 2004 for Kent vs Middlesex in Maidstone. Then comes Yusuf's 37 ball knock which was one of the best under pressure but couldn't pull off victory. But this innings by Sehwag managed to win with an over to spare after being down less than 40 for 4 wickets within 6 overs.

Yes Sehwag's knock yesterday was the best in IPL4 so far. I may not be able to say whether it is the best in all the IPL's so far because there have been some outstanding individual performances in earlier versions, one of them being Yusuf Pathan's century. It was a treat watching Sehwag yesterday. He played that innings after a long time I feel.
