    Sehwag’s 149-ball carnage was laced with 25 fours and seven sixes.

    He got past Tendulkar’s record with a four through point off Andre Russel. Sehwag’s double ton came in 142 balls.

    Tendulkar’s 200 off 147 balls (25×4, 3×6) came against South Africa at Gwalior in February 2010. He was the first cricketer to score a double century in ODIs.

    Sehwag got a life when he was on 171 with West Indies captain Darren Sammy dropping a sitter. He was finally dismissed by Kieron Pollard, caught by substitute Anthony Martin at long on.

    Sehwag’s top score before this innings was 175 against Bangladesh in the World Cup opener earlier this year.
