ICC inducts him into Hall of Fame on completion of seven years of retirement

Virender Sehwag is considered one of the best opening batsmen in the history of world cricket. Sehwag still has many such records in the world of cricket, breaking which is not an easy task for any player. A player is inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame when he completes seven years of retirement from international cricket. He is the eighth Indian to receive this honour. Apart from being the 9th Indian player, Diana Edulji is also the first Indian female player. The ICC has so far inducted very few women players into its Hall of Fame, which now includes the name of Diana Edulji. Bishan Singh Bedi, Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev, Anil Kumble, Rahul Dravid, Vinoo Mankad and Sachin Tendulkar have already received this award from India. Australia has the highest number of players in the ICC Hall of Fame so far.

Sehwag became the first Indian to score a triple century in Test.

If you look at Virender Sehwag’s international cricket, he was a match-winning player. There was no change in the way he played in the Test and limited overs formats. Sehwag became the first Indian to score a triple century in Test cricket. Sehwag has scored more than 17000 runs in his international cricket. The ICC will honor Sehwag and Diana during the semi-final match between India and New Zealand on November 15.
