Virender Sehwag is a master at scoring quick runs and he was the most aggressive top-order batsmen India had in tests. He has been brilliant with his footwork and relies on hand and eye coordination which is his style of play. Sehwag scored an excellent 32 ball fifty while opening the innings for India against England in 2008.

In a chase of 387 for India in the fourth innings at Chennai, Sehwag came out all guns blazing and finished with 83 off 68 balls hitting 11 fours and 4 sixes in the innings. It was one of India’s historic wins overall and Sehwag produced the third-fastest half-century in Test cricket as well.
