New Delhi: Virender Sehwag's breathtaking triple century, the fastest triple hundred in the history of the game, came in just 278 balls.

But the question is, will he reach the 400-run mark?

The first run that Sehwag scores on Saturday will create a new record - the highest individual test score by an Indian batsman.

NAWAB OF NAJAFGARH: The first run that Sehwag scores on Saturday will create a new record.

The right-hand batsman will break his own record of 309 made at Multan against Pakistan and will be looking forward to equaling or breaking West Indian superstar Brian Lara’s record.

On April 14, 2004; Lara scored 400 runs in a single test innings against England. And while many felt that would be a summit too far, Sehwag’s triple ton has only given them reason to remain hooked to the match.

If he can manage 91 more runs; he will smash yet another record and yet another myth.
