Mumbai: Swashbuckling Indian opener Virender Sehwag, who is set to play his landmark 100th Test match against England here on November 23, on Tuesday received rich tributes from two former players belonging to the elite club who wanted him to celebrate the occasion by notching up a ton.
"There should be more players like Sehwag. Players like him would bring back crowd to Test cricket. I want him to score a hundred in his 100th match," said 1983 World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev on the sidelines of the release of a book on Sehwag's teammate Yuvraj Singh.
The 34-year-old Sehwag scored his first Test century in almost two years in the first game of the ongoing four-match series against England at Ahmedabad - a blistering 117 - to set up the platform for the huge Indian first innings score of 521 for 9 declared.
