Virender Sehwag Biography

Virender Sehwag was born on October 20, 1978, in Najafgarh, Delhi, India.

Sehwag was born into a grain merchant’s family, the Jats.

He grew up in a large family with sixteen cousins, uncles, aunts, and siblings.

The Sehwag family is from Haryana, albeit they now live in New Delhi.

With two elder sisters, Manju and Anju, and a younger brother, Vinod, Sehwag was the third of four children born to father Krishan and mother Krishna Sehwag.

His father credits his son’s fascination with cricket to a toy bat he received when he was seven months old.

He had a reputation as an aggressive batsman early in his career, and his coach was Amar Nath Sharma.

Sehwag’s father attempted to put a stop to his career after he fractured a tooth as a toddler in 1990, but with the support of his mother, he was able to avoid the ban. After that, he graduated from Jamia Milia Islamia.

He went to Delhi’s Arora Vidya School and begged his parents to allow him play cricket despite his lack of academic ability.


Domestic career

Sehwag made his debut for Delhi cricket team in first class cricket in the 1997–98 season. The next season, he was named to the North Zone cricket squad for the Duleep Trophy, finishing seventh in total runs scored.

Since the start of his international career, he has continued to play for Delhi in local competitions when he is not on international duty, and he has guided North Zone to Deodhar Trophy victories in 2004–05 and 2005–06.

Indian Premier League

Sehwag captained the Delhi Daredevils during the first two editions of the Indian Premier League before stepping down to focus on his batting and passing the baton to Gautam Gambhir. He was, however, the sole player retained by the franchise for the fourth season of the IPL, this time as captain of the Delhi Daredevils.

He was also included in the all-time Cricinfo IPL XI to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of the IPL.

Career spaning in the globe

Sehwag’s ODI career began with a 0 against Pakistan in Mohali in April 1999, when he was bowled out by Shoaib Akhtar. His bowling was similarly unsuccessful and costly, allowing 35 runs in three overs. He did not have another shot on the national team for 20 months.

Sehwag did not play again until the December 2000 home series against Zimbabwe.

In August 2001, Sehwag made his international debut in Sri Lanka, when he was elevated to the starting spot for a tri-series that also included New Zealand.

With Saurav Ganguly’s injury in the India-England One-Day International Series in January 2002, Sehwag was given another chance to begin the batting, which he took advantage of by smashing 82 off 64 balls in Kanpur, leading India to an eight-wicket victory.

At late 2002, he led India to a nine-wicket triumph over the West Indies in Rajkot by scoring an unbeaten 114 off 82 balls, which included a 196-run stand with Ganguly.

Virender Sehwag had a disappointing 2003 Cricket World Cup, accumulating 299 runs at an average of 27. He top scored with 82 runs in the final loss to Australia.

The ICC nominated him to the World ODI XI for his efforts in 2004.

Sehwag subsequently went on a two-year ODI century drought, and his ODI trip to Pakistan in early 2006 was cut short owing to a shoulder injury.

Sehwag had a dismal start to the 2007 World Cup, and was only selected for the team due to Rahul Dravid’s desires.

Sehwag made India’s quickest ODI century against New Zealand on March 11, 2009, when he reached three figures in just 60 balls. In the end, he led India to their first series victory in New Zealand.

Sehwag’s greatest ODI score was against the West Indies in Indore on December 8, 2011, when he smashed 219 runs off only 149 balls.

Test career

Sehwag’s first century in Sri Lanka in mid-2001 did not earn him a spot in the Test lineup for the following series.

On Boxing Day 2003, he scored 195 against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. His ejection on the first afternoon resulted in a collapse of the Indian team and final loss.

He became the only Indian to make a triple century in Test cricket when he hit 309 against Pakistan in the First Test in Multan in early 2004, breaking V. V. S. Laxman’s previous Indian record of 281 against Australia and helped India post a total of 5/675, the highest ever against Pakistan.

Sehwag failed to score during the Bangladesh trip, but he hit 173 in Mohali, 81 in Kolkata, and 201 in Bangalore in the 2005 home series against Pakistan, totaling 544 runs at an average of 90.66 and winning the man of the series title.

Sehwag came close to reaching a century in the opening session of the Second Test at St Lucia during the 2006 West Indies tour, finishing with 99 at the interval.

Sehwag was axed from the Test team in 2007 due to poor form.

In the home series against South Africa in April 2008, Sehwag continued his fine form, hitting 319 in the first Test at M. A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, reaching 300 off just 278 balls, the fastest triple century in test history.

In the three-match test series against India in 2009, he scored 491 runs, making him the leading run scorer in the series.

The ICC selected him to the World Test XI for his achievements in 2010.


Sehwag declared his retirement from all forms of cricket including the IPL on October 20, 2015. Sehwag made 55 runs in the first game of the Cricket All-Stars Twenty20 series for Sachin Tendulkar’s Blasters on November 7, 2015, and was the only player from either team (versus Warne’s Warriors) to score a half-century, 5+ sixes, and a strike rate of above 150.

Private & early life

In April 2004, Sehwag married Aarti Ahlawat in a heavily guarded ceremony at the home of Arun Jaitley, India’s then-Union Law Minister. Aryavir, born on October 18, 2007, and Vedant, born in 2010, are the couple’s two sons.

Sehwag is well-known for singing while batting, and his favourite song to sing while batting is Kishore Kumar’s “Chala Jaata Hoon” from Rajesh Khanna’s Mere Jeevan Saathi (1972).

Sehwag established Sehwag International School in Jhajjar, Haryana, 65 kilometres west of Delhi, in 2011.

His mother opened the school, and it was his father’s goal to have a place where children could study, stay, train, and participate in sports.

After his second triple century, the Haryana government gave Sehwag a 23-acre plot of land to create an academy on, but he declined, stating that he would rather open a school to fulfil his father’s goal.

On January 21, 2017, Sehwag appeared as a guest on the Indian Idol show, where he stated that 22 pupils from his school have represented the national and state teams in various sports in the previous two years.


In November 2001, during the Second Test match between India and South Africa at St George’s Park in Port Elizabeth, Sehwag was handed a one-test suspension by ICC Match referee Mike Denness for “excessive appealing.” He was one of six Indian players who were given suspensions, four of which were for a period of time.
