India batting great Virender Sehwag on Monday celebrated the 11th anniversary of his double-century against Pakistan in a tweet where he called it a ‘privilege’ to reach the iconic 200-run mark in Lahore in 2006.
Sehwag, whose 309 against Pakistan in 2004 earned him the title of ‘Sultan of Multan’, reached the 200-run mark in just 182 balls — the fourth fastest double-century in Test history — to help his side draw the match against Pakistan after the hosts had racked up a whopping 679 in the first innings courtesy centuries from Younus Khan, Mohammad Yousuf, Shahid Afridi and Kamran Akmal.
Sehwag, who made 254 off 247 balls, was declared the man of the match for his resilient display but that did not help his side in the series as Pakistan ended up winning it 1-0 after dominating the visitors in the third Test; defeating them by 341 runs.
