On the second day of India's first Test against Pakistan in Multan, <a href="https://www.india.com/topic/virender-sehwag">Virender Sehwag</a> created history becoming the first batsman from his country to record a century in the longest format of the game. <p></p> <p></p>The record aside, the innings is also remembered for the manner in which Sehwag paced it. His philosophy of see ball, hit ball, was in full motion despite it being a conservative format as far as scoring rate is concerned. <p></p> <p></p>India opted to bat first and Sehwag blazed his way to a double-century on the opening day itself. He finished the day unbeaten on 228 alongside Sachin Tendulkar who was batting on 60. <p></p> <p></p>Later that evening, Sehwag admitted the record of becoming the first Indian to touch the 300-run mark in Test cricket was playing on his mind. <p></p> <p></p>The following day, March 29, 2004, Sehwag went on to swiftly claim the record, in some fashion, hitting a six over midwicket to reach his triple-ton. Pressure much? <p></p> <p></p>Sehwag broke records for fun during his stay. <p></p> <p></p>He belted 39 fours and six sixes during his 375-ball innings and was out on 309, the then highest score by any Indian in Test cricket. <p></p> <p></p>The match is also remembered for captain Rahul Dravid's decision of declaring innings with Tendulkar batting on 194, a polarising decision that split the cricketing world. <p></p> <p></p>Meanwhile, India went on to win the Test by an innings and 52 runs. <p></p> <p></p>Four year, later on March 28, 2008, Sehwag would break is own record, hitting a second Test triple century, making 319 off 304 with 42 fours and five sixes, at an incredible strike-rate of 104.93. <p></p> <p></p>Eight years later, Karun Nair became the second Indian to hit a Test triple.
