Gautam Gambhir - Virender Sehwag Show India to series win

Highlights - Gautam Gambhir - Virender Sehwag Show India to series win


India tour of New Zealand 5-match one day international series of the 4th ODI match played between India vs New Zealand at Hamilton in 2009 - India won by 84-runs with DLS method.

Virender Sehwag blasted India's fastest ODI hundred at that time as the visitors swept to a comprehensive win that secured their maiden one-day series triumph in New Zealand.

Virender Sehwag reached 100 off just 60 balls with a signature six and his awe-inspiring hitting overshadowed Gautam Gambhir's near run-a-ball half-century.

Daniel Vettori and the rest of the New Zealand bowlers were powerless in the face of the onslaught and what had seemed a challenging target was chased down with ridiculous ease.

Even the two stoppages due to rain couldn't stem the run-deluge with Virender Sehwag completing his century as early as the 18th over.

The openers added 201 for no loss in 23.3 overs until the rain made no further play possible and India won by 84-run by the D/L method.
