The second in this list is the all-time topper opener – Virender Sehwag. The world of cricket will always remember him as the batsman who redefined the role of an opener in Test cricket. He is known for his immaculate skills not just in surviving the new ball, but also to be able to shred it to threads with his individualistic aggressive batting. He is the only Indian batsmen to have scored a triple century in a test match, and he has done it twice! His first triple century was against Pakistan in 2004, and the second one was against South Africa, which was also the fastest triple century coming off just 278 balls.
Some extra trivia for you: Virender Sehwag has the fifth-highest individual score (219) in ODIs in a single innings.
