Virender Sehwag hails from a modest middle class Jat family that never had any connection with the game of cricket. Born on 20th October, 1978, he is the third of four children in Sehwag family. His is a big joint family with uncles, aunts and sixteen cousins! Although the Sehwag family belongs to the State of Haryana, Viru spent his childhood in a Delhi suburb called Najafgarh.
Viru’s father, Krishan Sehwag, is a grain merchant. Being the eldest son, Veeru was supposed to take over the reins of the family business after finishing his college. But destiny had different thoughts in store. Viru was never good at studies. While getting permission to play cricket, he used to win over his mother on the simple argument that he is not going to get the first division in studies anyways. His early cricketing days were all in uneven grounds near the down market Najafgarh locality. He studied in Arora Vidya School where he met Mr. A. N. Sharma who was the school coach. Mr.Sharma encouraged him to pursue cricket. In 1990, Viru broke his tooth while playing cricket and his father was about to put an end to his cricketing career. But Viru was intelligent enough to duck the bouncer with the help of his mother. Today, as we all know, his father is proud to say that he is father of Virender Sehwag!
Viru is exceptionally talented, gifted with a rare hand and eye co-ordination and has fabulous timing in his shots. Opposition gets terrorized with his devastating and aggressive batting style that helps put up a large target for them. The bowlers even of the caliber of Glenn McGrath, Shane Warne or Muthiah Muralitharan surrender to this man’s power play. Shane Warne went on to say "I will pay to watch Virender Sehwag batting". When he is on the go, it’s a spectator’s delight.
Viru holds multiple records including the highest score made by an Indian in Test cricket (319), which was also the fastest triple century in the history of international cricket (reached 300 in 278 balls). He has scored the fastest 250 by any batsman (in 207 balls against Sri Lanka on 3 December 2009 at the Brabourne stadium in Mumbai). He also holds the distinction of being one of four batsmen in the world to have ever surpassed 300 twice in Test cricket, and the only one to score two triple centuries and take a five-wicket innings haul. In March 2009, viru smashed the fastest century ever scored by an Indian in ODI cricket, from 60 balls.Latest in his achievement is that terrific 175 against Bangladesh in World Cup 2011.This is Virender Sehwag "The Nawab of Najafgarh". A man who knew what he wanted to be. A man who shaped his career with tremendous enthusiasm and commitment and went on to become a role model for India’s youth.
