Sehwag top-edges a full toss

Jan 27, 2012 at 01:18pm IST

For a while, while Virender Sehwag was striking some fluent boundaries, it appeared that he might at least push India halfway towards their target of 500 or help them bat out a draw. With 12 boundaries in his 53-ball 62, Sehwag was looking like the blaster of old.

That is, until, he got a juicy full toss from offspinner Nathan Lyon. To the first ball of the 20th over, bowled from around the stumps, Sehwag charged out. The ball came out a full toss but instead of hammering it over midwicket, Sehwag got a top edge that bobbed up and settled in Ricky Ponting's hands in the covers. Lyon could not believe his luck.

With that, Sehwag had picked up the dubious distinction of being out to two full tosses in the same Test match.
