Sehwag hits 7000 Test runs

On Wednesday, Virender Sehwag became the sixth Indian batsman to score 7000 runs in Tests during his unbeaten 97 runs on the second day of the third and final Test against Sri Lanka. Sehwag reached the big milestone during the final Test when he scored a single from Sri Lankan bowler Lasith Malinga to bring up his score to 7000 at the Oval pitch. He is the 38th batsman overall to have scored 7000 runs. Sehwag, who made his debut against South Africa in 2001, was playing in his 79th Test.

Sunil Gavaskar was the first Indian to hit 7000 runs in Test cricket years ago, while the other Indians in the list are Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Laxman and Sourav Ganguly. Sehwag remained unbeaten on 97 at the end of second day's play. During his 87 ball stay at the pitch, Sehwag smashed 17 boundaries.
