Virender Sehwag spanking the Proteas

I was catching up with the live scorecard from the 1st test between India and South Africa at Chennai, and was struck by Virender Sehwag’s batting stats so far:

  V Sehwag not out 273   251 40 3 108.76

That’s 273 runs from 251 balls, with 4o 4’s, 3 6’s, and a strike rate over 1oo. When you see that India’s total runs so far are 401, he’s dominating in every conceivable manner. Considering that they’re chasing South Africa’s first innings total of 540, and that the ever steady and slowish Rahul Dravid’s up the other end, Sehwag may be pushing towards Brian Lara’s record of 400 some time tomorrow.
