Ind vs. Pak, 3rd Test, 3rd Day
Mar 26, 2005
The five Indian batsman who are out (not including Sehwag) scored 98 runs combined. Sehwag scored more than double that amount before Kaneria got him. He got another giant century in this series; this time it was a double. His 201 runs came at a scorching pace since he only needed 262 balls.
Sehwag has made scores of 173, 36, 81, 15, and now 201 in 5 innings. His average in the series is a jaw dropping 101.2. Sehwag deserves the Man of the Series Award. He is, in my opinion, the 2nd best opener in the world behind Australia's Hayden.
Pakistan hold a lead of approx. 200 runs. If India crumble on the 4th day, then Pakistan can push for a sizable lead (it's Afridi time) and declare at the end of the day. Credit to Kaneria for his tireless efforts. He not only got Sehwag but the key wicket of Dravid as well. Pakistan will require his magic for the 2nd innings to win this match.
