Virender Sehwag has registered the highest individual score (219 runs) in 50-over cricket, blasting seven sixes and 25 fours during his 149-ball stay to light up Indore’s Holkar Cricket Stadium.

Playing his 240th one-day international, the 33-year-old right-handed batsman overtook compatriot Sachin Tendulkar, a player he was often compared to early in his career.

Here’s your chance to congratulate Sehwag. Post your messages in the comments below.

Great work Sehwag, just the shot in the arm the Indian cricket team needed. Now if only Tendulkar can get that elusive 100th ton.

Congrats Sehwag! I’d love to see you score a triple century against the Australians this time! That is the next milestone. Do it at Melbourne and that would become the pinnacle of your career!

Congratulations Sehwag. I thought, it will take sometime to undo Sachin’s record of 200ton in ODI. Sehwag: you rock buddy.
