'Sehwag was singing Kishore songs'

“He was playing very well with no tension. That day, he was singing some Kishore Kumar songs. He was not feeling any kind of tension,” Raina, who cracked 55 in a 140 run-stand for the third wicket with Sehwag, said while addressing the ‘India Today Youth Summit’ here.

Asked whether he too joined him in singing, Raina said “No, I was only on 30 at that time. So, I did not.”

Sehwag’s 219 had 25 boundaries and seven sixes as he smashed the West Indian bowlers all over the park to help India post a mammoth 418 for five in 50 overs.

In the process, Sehwag overtook Sachin Tendulkar’s 200 not out made against South Africa.
Apart Raina, off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and BCCI’s selection committee chairman Kris Srikkanth was also present at the Youth Summit.
