Ahmedabad: Nov 15, 2012

 

Indian opener Virender Sehwag ended his two years drought of centuries with a blistering ton against England at Ahmadabad on Thursday.

 

Sehwag scored 15 boundaries and one six in his knock as he reached his 23rd ton in just 90 balls during the second session on the first day of the match.

 

Earlier, India reached a score of 120 runs without losing a wicket at Lunch in the first Test against England  as Sehwag scored a blistering half-century.

 

Both openers Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir scored crisply as earlier, Indian captain MS Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat first. Sehwag was in punishing mood as he scored 15 runs in one of Tim Bresnan’s over after reaching his fifty.

 

Sehwag last scored a century against New Zealand at the same venue in 2010 when was dismissed for 173 runs in the first innings of the match.
