On November 3, 2001, Indian batsman Virender Sehwag had announced his arrival in Test cricket in some style by scoring a swashbuckling century on debut.
The Delhi dasher, who would later go on to become one of India's greatest opening batsmen, batted at number six in this match. He came out to bat in difficult circumstances as the Indians were tottering at 68/4.
Alongside his idol Sachin Tendulkar, Sehwag would help stitch together a 220-run partnership as both batsmen scored centuries. Sehwag would eventually be dismissed for 105, having hit 19 boundaries during his knock.
This would be the start of a great Test career which saw Sehwag notch up 8586 runs at an average of 49.34 in 104 Test matches.
