Who would have thought about a double ton in an ODI

What happened in Indore today will go down in the cricketing history, and hence in India's fame book in golden letters. This guy called 'Viru', who resembles the 'God' of Cricket, makes this games look so easy. He is a guy who is hardly bothered about what is going on the other side. He just goes about his business peacefully. Did I just now used the word 'peacefully'? Because neither his batting, nor his strike rate will give you any indication about him being peaceful while scoring runs.

I am not sure how I was feeling when Sehwag was at 175 or round about there (as he didn't stay at any particular score for long enough for me to reflect), but as a mortal fan of the God of cricket, somewhere I knew that if someone is going to break the 200 mark in ODI, he has to have the nick name 'Viru'.Hats off to Sehwag for this fantastic achievement. Cricket, (for me) after the greats like Kumble, Ganguly, Sachin, Laxman, Dravid will still be a game to be followed.

I think the GOD of cricket has the first double ton in ODI to his name....

That's right Jhulol. But when Sachin does it, it's not counted in mortals category. For anyone else it is a great feat.
