Viru slams India's fastest ODI century

Sachin Tendulkar helped India set a record and his disciple followed him. Yes, Virender Sehwag a.k.a Viru smashed the Kiwi bowlers out of the park. It was a feast to the eyes. Viru had got his century even before the Kiwi bowlers could bowl 20 overs. Just imagine if India was batting first. He had no respect for any bowler and as always he got his hundred by hitting a six of Daniel Vettori. Sehwag remained not out on 125* off 74 balls hitting 6 sixes and 14 fours as India won the match by D/L method.
