Sehwag Breaks Tendulkar's ODI Record

Indore: Indian opener Virender Sehwag smashed the highest score in one-day cricket when he scored 219 in the fourth ODI against the West Indies in Indore on Thursday.

The 33-year-old joined compatriot Sachin Tendulkar as the only batsmen to hit double-centuries in the 50-over format as he moved past 200 in the 44th over of India's innings at the Holkar stadium in Indore.

Tendulkar, the world's leading Test and one-day batsman, made 200 not out against South Africa in Gwalior in February 2010.

Sehwag surpassed Tendulkar's score when, on 197, he cut Andre Russell to the point fence for his 23rd boundary.
