DDCA gets realities incorrect while honouring Sehwag; loses out Karun Nair’s triple hundred

NEW DELHI: The Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) on Tuesday devoted a huge oversight while devoting the Ferozshah Kotla Arena’s Gate No. 3 to former India opener Virender Sehwag.The gate consisted of a cut-out of Sehwag, with the line “Legends are permanently”, and a panel stating stats and achievements from his impressive international profession covering 14 years.On the panel, Sehwag was described as “the just Indian to score a triple hundred in Test cricket”.

The DDCA, however cannot identify that Sehwag isn’t really the lone Indian as Karnataka batsman Karun Nair likewise scored a triple heap, not long ago.Nair slammed an important 303 versus England at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai in December last year.

Remarkably, Nair leads the city-based Delhi Daredevils franchise in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Returning to Sehwag, the Sultan of Multan as he is widely referred to as, is the only Indian to score two triple centuries.Sehwag blasted his

maiden triple century(309) against Pakistan in Multan in 2004 and 4 years later smashed 319 against South Africa in Chennai in 2008.
