    Times Now claimed Virender Sehwag had requested for a farewell Test.

    However, BCCI turned his request down.

    South Africa
    India won the toss and elected to bat

    V Kohli c †de Kock b Rabada 138 (140b 6x4 5x6) SR: 98.57

    India scored 69 for 5 in the last 10, 29 in last 5

    India's run rate in the last five overs in this series - they've scored 140 runs in 120 balls, including 29 in 30 balls today

    Virat Kohli gets his 23rd ODI ton. Only four have more. And he's only 26!

    In 12 days, he will be 27 years old.

    His centuries by year:

    2008- 0
    2009- 1
    2010- 3
    2011- 4
    2012- 5
    2013- 4
    2014- 4
    2015- 2

    23 centuries in 8 years. If he plays till he is 35, he has 8 more years.

    Currently his average is around 3 ODI centuries per year. If he can keep that up for the next 8 years, he can reach 47 centuries.
    Hasta la vista, baby. I'll be back.

    Bang, bang. Ravindra Jadeja has his sixth successive five-wicket haul.


    Sir 'The Terror' Jadeja now joins the record with CTB Turner for most consecutive five wicket hauls in first class matches.

    Sehwag:

    Virender Sehwag once played for the English county Leicestershire. Once he was batting with the no.8 batsman, Jeremy Snape. The bowler they were facing was Abdul Razzaq, who was bowling with the old ball. So naturally, he was reverse swinging the ball prodigiously, so much so that balls started on off stump, and tailed back into the batsman's boot. Razzaq had already accounted for two of their batsmen. They still had 40 overs left in the day, and with the way the ball was nipping around, it didn't seem likely that they would last the day.

    Snape comes up to Sehwag and says - "This guy's making a mockery out of us. I can hardly see the ball coming. You've got to do something."

    Sehwag bites his lip, toes the pitch and says - "Okay. I've got a plan."

    So when Razzaq comes out to bowl the next ball, Sehwag takes two steps down the pitch and smacks the ball clean out of the stadium. The umpires look at each other, and order a change of ball.

    Then Sehwag walks up to Snape and says : "The new ball won't swing for some time. We are safe for another two hours."
    Hasta la vista, baby. I'll be back.

    The Sehwag-Shoaib Akthar episode: This is the most well known duel between the cricketers. The incident took place when Pakistani speedster Shoaib Akhtar decided to bowl some short stuff to Sehwag to restrict his big hits.

    Shoaib bowled bouncers to Sehwag and after every ball to Sehwag, Shoaib came up to him and said “Hook maar ke dikha” ( Hook this ball, if you can)
    Sehwag replied “Yeh bowling kar raha hai ya bheekh maang raha hai?” (Is he bowling or begging?)

    It was this comment on which even Pakistani fielders could not hold their laughter back.
    After an over, Sehwag realised Shoaib Akthar was going to stick with this tactic, so he went up to Shoaib and said, “Wo tera baap khada hai non-striker end pe, usko bol woh marke dikhayega (Tell it your dad at the non-striker end, he will show it to you).”

    The batsman on the non-striker end was legendary batsman Sachin Tendulakar. Shoaib later bowled a similar bouncer to Sachin, and Sachin hit a sixer. After the six, Sehwag walked up to Akthar and said, “Baap baap hota hai, beta beta hota hai (A son can't try to dominate his Dad).”
    Hasta la vista, baby. I'll be back.

    Team India’s captain MS Dhoni felt Sehwag, Gambhir and Sachin were slow fielders and they leak too many runs in big grounds in Australia. Hence the three were rotated in each match.

    After one match into the series, Sehwag was asked what he had to say of Dhoni's claim that he was a slow fielder. Sehwag's Reply, "Have you seen my catch?"

    Sehwag hardly thinks before he says anything which is what makes him the most candid person in the Indian Cricket.
    Hasta la vista, baby. I'll be back.

    In the commentary box, V.V.S. Laxman and Sanjay Manjrekar were talking about Virender Sehwag's innings in Multan in which he became the first Indian to score a 300.

    Laxman said, "Before Sehwag did his debut in test cricket he told me that I(Laxman) missed a 300 in Kolkata (Laxman made 281) but he (Sehwag) won't miss it and will become the first Indian to score a 300 !!"

    Laxman also revealed that Sehwag pointed his bat towards Laxman after making 300 runs and made him remember that he told he was going to do it.
    Hasta la vista, baby. I'll be back.
