<br>109 vs Sri Lanka at Colombo</b><br><br> India desperately needed to win this Test match to square the series and also retain their No 1 position in the ICC Test team rankings.<br><br> Sehwag gave India's cause a much need impetus with his flashy knock in the first innings.
<b>109 vs Sri Lanka ar Galle</b><br><br> When no other Indian batsman could stand at the wicket, Sehwag delivered for the team with a whirlwind knock.<br><br> But as has been his bane, he departed soon after the century and the Indian batting crumbled.
<b>165 vs South Africa at Kolkata</b><br><br> This was the litmus test for Dhoni's men. Down 0-1 in the 2-match series and with South Africa needing a draw to topple them from the Test rankings perch, India needed to fight back.<br><br> And Sehwag gave the hosts the perfect platform with a big knock. Sachin and Laxman scored tons too and Harbhajan bowled India to a memorable win.
<b>109 vs South Africa at Nagpur</b><br><br> After South Africa had scored big in their first innings, they created troubles for India with early wickets.<br><br> Sehwag though held his own and kept scoring freely to bring up his 18th Test ton.<br><br> But just when he looked at his best, he chased a wide Parnell delivery to commit hara-kiri. Steyn ripped apart the rst of the line up and India went on to lose the match.
