New Delhi, Oct.20 (ANI): Indian flamboyant opener Virender Sehwag, who has officially announced his retirement from international cricket, said on Tuesday that making his Test debut against South Africa was the most memorable moment of his career.
“The most memorable moment in my career was when I made my Test debut,” the 37-year-old said in an exclusive interview to ANI.
Sehwag, who is popularly known as the ‘Nawab of Najafgarh’, said that he considered himself lucky enough to have played with legends like Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly, Anil Kumble and Zaheer Khan.
“Scoring my first 300, winning world cup, scoring 201 against Sri Lanka are my most cherished moments. Cricket is my love, after retirement I will stay in cricket, maybe commentary or coaching in some academy,” added Sehwag.
He holds multiple records including the highest score made by an Indian in Test cricket (319) and the fastest triple century in the history of international cricket (he scored 300 in 278 balls).
Sehwag has played 104 tests and scored 8,586 runs at an average of 49.34 and has amassed 8,273 runs at an average of 35.05 in 251 ODIs. (ANI)
