8th December 2011: Sehwag Follows Sachin's Footsteps, Scales Mt 200 in ODIs

Virender Sehwag became the second batsman after Sachin Tendulkar to score 200 runs in an One-Day international, when he smashed 219 against West Indies in Indore.

Sehwag's reached the landmark in 149 balls and the 200 came as early as the 44th over for the Delhi Dasher. Sehwag took plenty of risks and survived two dropped catches as he helped India reach their highest ODI total - 418.

He was caught in the deep in the 47th over off Pollard's bowling and didn't come out to field, though he was the captain.

Other contributions around Sehwag were that of Gambhir and Raina who scored 67, 55 respectively.

West Indies never really threatened in the chase and were dismissed for 165 in the 50th over, with India comfortably winning by 153 runs.

Sehwag's innings stood as the highest ODI score for three years, until it was overtaken by Rohit Sharma in 2014.

The match was also the ODI debut for Rahul Sharma, who took 3 wickets and ended with figures of 3/43.
