Indore: Dashing India opener Virender Sehwag, who on Thursday created history by scoring the highest ever one-day score of 219 in the fourth ODI against the West Indies, said that he was happy to have broken the record of batting great and team-mate Sachin Tendulkar.
"I was happy when Tendulkar scored 200 not out. I was sitting in the front and clapping and cheering when he did that. I am extremely happy to emulate Tendulkar and to have broken a record held by a great cricketer like him," Sehwag said after India crushed West Indies by 153 runs to take an unassailable 3-1 lead in the five-match ODI series.
Sehwag was on Thursday handed a cheque of Rs 10 lakh by the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association for his phenomenal feat and he said in a lighter vein that he would not mind coming again and scoring another double hundred here.
