As far as cricket is concerned, India has become a home of records as it is holding most of the record in International cricket. Its been an another milestone in India’s record list. For a long time, Virender Sehwag's fans had discussed what their hero was capable of scoring if he ever batted through an innings. A double century was expected and Sehwag knew it well and he did it now in Indore. Sehwag's brutal hitting ended in a world record 219 against West Indies, saw India post its highest one-day total of 418 for five and resulted in a series-clinching victory. Though Sehwag was the most expected guy for double hundred in ODI, Sachin Tendulkar became the first man to reach the milestone against South Africa in February last year. Earlier this year, Sehwag threatened Tendulkar's 200 not out before he was dismissed for his then career-best 175 against Bangladesh. “Many great players have tried to score a double century but have not succeeded in their careers. I never expected to score 200. I think, it was a once in a life-time opportunity. I am happy that I could break the record of my role-model” said Sehwag during post match presentation.
