Sehwag triple century leads India run spree

March 28, 2008

Indian opener Virender Sehwag smashed his second career triple century and the fastest recorded to spearhead India's reply against South Africa on the third day of the first Test on Friday.

Sehwag bludgeoned an unbeaten 309 to match his previous best made against Pakistan in Multan in 2004.

    The 29-year-old steered the hosts to 468 for one at stumps in reply to South Africa's first innings 540 all out, destroying the South African bowling on a good batting pitch.

    Sehwag matched the feat of Australian Don Bradman and West Indies batsman Brian Lara, who have also surpassed 300 twice. Lara holds the record for the highest Test score (400 not out).
