Golden gift for centurion Sehwag!

New Delhi, Nov 27, 2012, DHNS:

A 100 gold coin gift is awaiting for Virender Sehwag to mark his 100th Test milestone.

Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) has decided to honour Sehwag for his achievement of playing 100 Test matches, a feat he achieved in the Mumbai Test against England.

DDCA Vice-president Chetan Chauhan  made the proposal at the executive committee meeting of the state association on Tuesday, and it was promptly accepted.


“He is one of the finest cricketers the game has seen and he deserves this for his stellar contribution to Indian cricket,” said Chauhan.

The coins, each one of 10 grams, will be presented to Sehwag on January 6, 2013 when India host arch-rivals Pakistan for a one-day international match at the Feroze Shah Kotla ground.

The DDCA has also decided to name a gate or an enclosure after Sehwag.

The dashing opener is the ninth Indian cricketer to have played 100 Test matches, having made his debut in 2001 against South Africa.
