Sehwag did not win another game until the home match against Zimbabwe in December 2000. In the 4th ODI against Australia in Bangalore in March 2001, he scored 58 off 54 balls. He won the Man of the Match award for India's three-wicket win. This was followed by an unsuccessful trip to Zimbabwe in mid-2001.

Sehwag achieved international success in Sri Lanka in August 2001 when he thrilled New Zealand in the first match of a three-match series. He won the first innings after regular opener Sachin Tendulkar was ruled out with a leg injury. In a crucial match against New Zealand, he scored his maiden century off 69 balls. Meanwhile, the century was the third fastest ODI century by an Indian behind Mohammad Azharuddin's 62 balls and Yuvraj Singh's 64 balls. He scored more than 50 points in ten games and was named MVP for the first time. This performance saw him become a regular middle-order player in the ODI team. His 2009 tour of New Zealand set a Hall of Fame record for 60 hits. The highlight of 2002 was almost his half-century.

When Saurav Ganguly was injured during the India-England ODI in January 2002, Sehwag got another chance to open the innings, making 82 off 64 balls in Kanpur to give India an eight-run victory.[39] A good opening performance. , Sehwag A permanent match was made during the games. Sachin Tendulkar, who opened England's ODI series, was placed in the middle of the order,[40] a strategy that paid off for India in the 2002 ODI series. In the England match and on an earlier tour to South Africa, he scored a half-century and scored 426 runs with an average of 42.6.

After a modest comeback in the tours of West Indies and England in early-mid 2002, he scored 271 runs at 90.33 in the 2002 ICC Champions Trophy in Sri Lanka, winning two Man of the Match awards. After the run, Ian Blackwell, who was in a 192-run partnership with Ganguly, scored 126 off 104 balls to help seal an eight-wicket win against England in the group stage. He continued.

In late 2002, he scored an unbeaten 114 off 82 balls and joined Ganguly in a 196-run stand to lead India to a nine-run victory over the West Indies in Rajkot. He is the only player to score two centuries in New Zealand's seventh. 

Virender Sehwag was a middleman in the 2003 Cricket World Cup, averaging 27, including 82 in the loss to Australia in the final.

He later scored his fourth century in 2003 and won the Man of the Match award against New Zealand in Hyderabad, scoring 130 runs and laying the foundation for a 145-run win with Tendulkar in 182 runs. However, Sehwag struggled to play consistently once in the 2003 and 2003/04 series, scoring just one 350 in 22 matches, two against minnows Bangladesh and Zimbabwe and one against Pakistan.

Despite his inconsistent form, he won three MOM awards at the same time in 2004/05 and 2004/05, one each for Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Against Pakistan, Kochi scored 108 off 95 balls, his first hundred in 18 months, to win by 95 runs.

His cricket drought has baffled cricket pundits as he has scored a large number of runs in Test matches which have not translated into meaningful results in the ODI format. In 2007, when there was a debate about whether he should be included in the cricket World Cup, captain Dravid's insistence on staying paved the way for his inclusion in the World Cup squad. However, despite this promise, Sehwag's form continued to decline.

Sehwag started the 2007 World Cup in poor form and was selected for the team only on the wishes of Rahul Dravid. He made a mistake in the first ODI but bounced back to score 114 from his 87 against Bermuda. Team India, the highest-ranked team in the World Cup, won the match with 413-5 but this was their only win in this match.

The style of play-- 

Virender Sehwag plays hook shots

Sehwag was often compared to Sachin Tendulkar in his early days due to his similarity in batting style, build, and appearance. He has admitted on several occasions that he consciously tried to model Tendulkar's style of play when he was younger.

Sehwag's technique is often described as quite unorthodox, often resorting (considered technically incorrect) to straightening the arm during the shot, in particular, and cutting or guiding spinners from the inside to the outside. Commentators often cite him for his powerful square-cut, over-cut, and offside (to the body) power. He is also a good late-cut player. In particular, his tendency to kick the ball in the air and risk being sent away is a trait that shows he is known for his relaxed and adventurous spirit. He was also known for his poor footwork, often attributed to the timing of his eyesight. Lately, [when?] Sehwag has shown a tendency to shake off swing deliveries, a characteristic attributed to his front-foot batting style. He was also thrown out on a cut shot when the ball was too close to his body to cut him, particularly in limited plays.

Virender Sehwag on strike for MCC -

Virender Sehwag is best known for his very attacking batting style, and in 2005 he was described by the Wisden Cricketers Almanack as "opening the world more exciting" for his aggressive style in test matches, his strike rate and "that is just inferior to him. ' by Adam Gilchrist and Shahid Afridi. Sehwag was also known for his notable carelessness in a match situation, showing aggressive batting even when his team was in a bad position or after foiling a bowler in the recent past. This is a double-edged sword because it not only allows you to mentally cling to past failures, but it can also lead to excessive aggression. Pakistan coach Bob Woolmer called him a "sophisticated slogger". But in recent years, his style has shifted from "reckless hitting" to "controlled aggression," according to the Sydney Morning Herald article. Earlier, Sehwag was known more as an off-field player, with a weakness for bowling straight against short tosses. However, the side of his foot has improved and his gorilla is more striking. This was highlighted during the recent ODI against New Zealand, where he used pull, hook, and click shots to devastating effect.

As of 15 March 2010, Sehwag's first innings average is around 68 and he has scored 5130 runs and 18 centuries and 1250 in 76 matches. The second innings average has dropped to 31 and he has scored 1561 runs at 100 and 950. 54 innings The difference of 37 runs in 1 second and 2 innings is one of the highest, showing the inability to control the more difficult impact if the jump gets worse. However, the 151 he scored in two innings against Australia at Adelaide in the 2007-08 Border-Gavaskar series and the 92 he scored in the victory in poor conditions at Nagpur in the 2008-09 series came in handy for the change. . this image In the 2008 Test series against England, Sehwag played a key role in the fourth innings of the first Test in Chennai. He scored 83 off 68 balls, helping India chase 387 with six balls to spare. He was India's highest run-scorer and fourth-highest in Test history. For his efforts, Sehwag was named Man of the Match. On 12 August 2011, Sehwag became the third Indian player to score a double (second consecutive golden duck) and the 15th to do so, but a few weeks later he scored another 55 in the all-important attack in the west. Indie.[requirements]

In eight Test matches since April 2012, he scored just 408 runs at an average of 31.38 and a top score of 117. He was dropped from the ODIs after scoring 183 runs at an average of 30.5 in 6 ODIs in the same period. series with England. His last ODI century came against West Indies in December 2011, when he scored a double hundred. Former England all-rounder Geoffrey Boycott has hinted that this could be the end of the road for Sehwag. They gave opportunities to the youngsters."
