Virender Sehwag will be named as one of the best openers in the history of Test cricket. Sehwag has been batting aggressively with success from the very beginning with the new red ball. And for this reason, the Indian opener has two triple centuries. However, he might get the number three in Mumbai but did not get it for just 6 runs.

In the third Test of the series against Sri Lanka in 2009, Virender Sehwag was dismissed for 293 in Mumbai. And the king of Najafgarh must have regretted this. But the legendary off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan said, why did Viru miss 300!

Muralitharan praises Virendar Sehwag

I remember him batting for 290 in Mumbai and I think Dravid was the one who told Sehwag to stand up and make 300 the next day,” Murali said in an interview. The next morning, he was stabbed and caught out and told me, “I should have attacked you without listening to Rahul.

Meanwhile, praising Sehwag, the former Sri Lankan spinner said, “He could understand and read what I was bowling. He says he can’t read me but I can say that he used to play me differently from the others. He is very dangerous, I have said it before. “

The legendary opener has retired from all forms of international cricket on 20 October 2015. Now he is serving as a member of National Anti Doping Appeal Panel.
