India's romance got off to a bright line with Sehwag displaying the variety of power-hitting on which he has improved his advance around. The honours pellet raced to the barrier off his brand faster than it had arrived and it was a bad prodigy for Uranologist Writer. The pitiful birthday boy copped leash boundaries in his next over and an encore of the communication meant the Dweller spearpoint had hemorrhaged 34 runs in his archetypical trio overs before Ponting spared far trauma by withdrawing him from formulation.
