Virender Sehwag have tormented bowlers at will during his days. He made Indian batting so strong in all formats with his demolishing batting. In the process, he achieved many milestones and was well scripted in history books.
He was the first Indian to score two triple hundreds in Tests and also boasts a double hundred in ODIs and a horrifying batsman for bowlers in the shortest format.
Virender Sehwag has the records speak for himself. However, while India were playing tri-series in Sri Lanka against hosts and New Zealand, a major controversy took place.
After an impressive bowling display by Indians, Sri Lanka were restricted to a paltry 170. Coming into bat, Team India were always favorites to win the game and Virender Sehwag dominated the bowlers at will.
He scored 99* (100) which included 11 fours and two sixes, with one run left and Sehwag on strike everyone expected Viru to score a hundred.
Sehwag has hit a six to bring up his hundred but the umpire declared the ball as no-ball which meant he was left on 99* as he missed on a well deserved hundred.
Suraj Randiv who bowled the no-ball deliberately was banned for the next 2 ODIs by the Sri Lankan board. However, the act is still remembered as it brought a big disgrace to Sri Lankan cricket.
Virender Sehwag took twitter to remember the incident as it happened exactly six years ago
