Meanwhile, the opposing teams always feared Sehwag as he was not only the quick game changer; he was also a confidence destroyer for the opposition bowlers.

The right-handed opening batsman had a long international cricket career from April 1999 to March 2013. Sehwag played 104 Tests, 251 ODIs and 19 T20Is where he scored 8,586 runs (average 49.34), 8,273 runs (average 35.05) and 394 runs (average 21.88) respectively.

Also, Sehwag took 136 international wickets (40 Test wickets and 96 ODI wickets) as a right-arm off-break bowler.

During his international career, the Indian cricket team achieved many successes, including the 2007 ICC World T20 and 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup victories.
