Sehwag’s rare feat

V Sehwag achieved one of
the rare feats in test cricket. He scored twin fifties - 55 runs in both
innings against West Indies in the ongoing test at Delhi.

 

He became the 17th batsman
in the annals of test cricket to score twin fifties - identical number of runs
in both innings of the test match. LRD Mendis of Sri
Lanka scored 105 runs in each innings against India at
Chennai. His feat remains the only occasion of a batsman scoring identical
hundred plus runs in the annals of test cricket. The complete list is furnished
below

V Sehwag is the second
Indian batsman to score identical number of runs in both innings of a test
match. The other batsman is SR Tendulkar who had scored 52 in each innings
against Pakistan
at Kolkata in Mar 2005.

 

V Sehwag is the second
opening batsman to score twin fifties with identical number of runs. The other
batsman is MH Richardson of New Zealand
who made 55 in both innings against Kandy
in May 2003.

 

By a pure statistical
coincidence, both the batsmen - MH Richardson and V Sehwag - have scored 55
runs in both innings of a test.
