Abu Dhabi: Out-of-favour India opener Virender Sehwag blasted a 97-ball 109 to lead Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) to a comfortable six-wicket win over Durham in a Champion County Test match at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium here on Wednesday. The 35-year-old Delhi batsman smashed 18 boundaries and a six in his 97-ball innings to help MCC overhaul the victory target of 225 in 51 overs on the fourth and final day.
Out of the national side for more than a year, Sehwag played a captain's knock as he added 105 runs with Samit Patel (48 not out)of Nottinghamshire for the fourth-wicket. Sehwag was finally dismissed by Jamie Harrison in the 49th over of MCC's second innings.
Resuming the MCC's second innings at overnight 48/2, Sehwag blasted three fours in the opening over of the first session from seamer Harrison to give his team a good start in the day.
