Sehwag's maiden ton in T20s and IPL

What a match it was. Delhi Daredevils against Deccan Chargers at Hyderabad was a treat to watch, a true Sehwag special to say the least. Deccan Chargers scored 175 in 20 overs, courtesy JP Duminy and a couple of no-balls by Yogesh Nagar. 175 was a huge score to be chased.

Delhi Daredevils came out to bat as Sehwag and Finch opened the innings. Finch got out for a second ball duck, later even Ojha got out early. Y Venugopal Rao also failed in this match. One match who was watching his team-mates getting dismissed by the Deccan Chargers' bowlers was Virender Sehwag, standing at the non-strikers end.

After 7 overs, Delhi had scored just 32 runs for the loss of 3 wickets. Then Sangkkara, the captain of the Chargers decided to give the ball to the debutant Ishan Malhotra. Sehwag had decided that enough is enough, now is the time to get aggressive. The first two delivers of Malhotra's over were smashed for two huge sixes by Viru, followed by 2 boundaries off the 3rd and 4th deliveries. Sehwag had taken off, he never looked back since then.
Viru went on to score his century, guiding Delhi to an incredible victory. When Sehwag reached his 100, the team score was just 131. This clearly shows how dominant Sehwag was and how he won the match on his own for Delhi.

With this ton, Sehwag now also has the Orange Cap in the tournament and is far ahead of all others. He also has hit the maximum sixes in the tournament now, also maximum fours.
