Born on 20th October 1978, Virender Sehwag (affectionately known as Viru and the Nawab of Najafgarh) is an Indian International cricketer who plays for Indian national side in test matches, ODI’s and T20 cricket matches. He plays for Delhi in the domestic cricket and also plays in the Indian Premier League.
Considered to be one of the most destructive batsmen in the world, Sehwag is an aggressive right-handed opening batsman and a part-time right-arm off-spin bowler.

With minimal footwork, but great hand-eye coordination, Sehwag goes after every delivery that deserves to be hit. He plays in that manner even in the five day version of the game.
Sehwag holds multiple records including the highest score made by an Indian in Test cricket (319), which was also the fastest triple century in the history of international cricket (reached 300 off only 278 balls) as well as the fastest 250 by any batsman (in 207 balls against Sri Lanka on 3 December 2009 at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai).
He also holds the record of the fastest century ever scored by an Indian in ODI cricket, from 60 balls. His score remains the highest individual score in ODI cricket – 219 off 149 balls.
However, Sehwag is yet to perform as consistently in the Twenty20 format as he does in the longer versions of the game.
Sehwag was the “Icon” player for the Delhi Daredevils when the IPL was formed, and remained with the franchise till IPL 2013.
In the six IPL seasons played so far Sehwag has scored 2174 runs in 79 matches at an average of 29.37 and has taken 6 wickets at an average of 39.16.
In players auction for IPL 2014, he was bought by Kings XI Punjab for Rs. 3.2 Crores.
Lets hope that he adds some fire-power to Kings XI Punjab batting in IPL 2014.
Sehwag will once again be seen LIVE in action playing for the Delhi Daredevils in IPL 2013. He will captain the team in IPL 2013.
