Bio

Probably the most intimidating batsman in the world, Virender Sehwag has been a nightmare for bowlers since he entered the international scene in 1999. 

Since then his unique style has earned him 22 Test hundreds, two triple-centuries and almost 8000 runs in 89 matches. He has also been a force majeure in the limited-overs formats. 

Australia have suffered on numerous occasions, with Sehwag collecting three Test centuries against them, including a fierce 195 which ended before stumps on the opening day of the 2003-04 Boxing Day Test. 

He is also nearing 8000 runs in one-day internationals and while he has reached three figures 14 times in that format, he has only managed three fifties in 28 matches against Australia. 

Sehwag had shoulder surgery in May and a recurrence of the problem forced him out of the one-day series in England.
