On this day, back in 2009, at Hamilton, India won their first and only ODI series in New Zealand. Riding on Virender Sehwag’s record-breaking century, India won the match by a huge margin of 84 runs (D/L method) and claimed the series trophy by leading the rubber by 3-0. Although, they lost the last match at Auckland. Chasing, 281 from the given 47 overs, Sehwag gave a blistering start by hammering the then India’s fastest ODI century by reaching the landmark in just 60 balls. Previous record was of 64 balls by Mohammad Azharuddin. Moreover, during India’s chase, the match kept interrupted by the rain but India did not lose a single wicket as Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir remained unbeaten at the score of 201 from 23.3 overs. Sehwag scored 125 not out from 74 balls and Gambhir made 63 off 67.
