Virender Sehwag is considered to be one of best destructor of cricket ball the world has ever seen. He had the great ability to hit the first ball of any format of cricket to the boundary. He was known for destroying even the greatest bowlers in world cricket. In the semi-final of 2011 World Cup , he hit five consequtive fours of Umar Gul. But he did target another Pakistan fast bowler in the 2004 bilateral series!
Virender Sehwag destroyed Rana Naved-ul-Hasan in the 1st ODI of 2004 bilateral series between India and Pakistan in 2004. The 10th over of the innings which Rana bowled went for 24 runs and Sehwag faced all the deliveries. What’s surprising is to find that he conceeded 17 runs of a single delivery. Guess how?
The 10th over read something like this:4nb,4nb,0nb,0,4nb,0nb,4,2,0,0,1. If you clearly look at the figures, he went for 17 runs of the 1st legal delivery. Not many bowlers in the cricket would have conceeded higher than that. Rana went on to conceed 73 runs of his 10 overs and India won the match.
