New Delhi:

Senior off-spinner Harbhajan Singh termed Virender Sehwag as the "most dangerous batsman in world cricket" after the latter's record-breaking 219 against the West Indies at Indore on Thursday.

"By far, Viru is the most dangerous batsman in world cricket," Harbhajan, who is currrently nursing a shin injury, told PTI on Thursday.

Sehwag had been under pressure as he hadn't scored much in the first three ODIs, but Harbhajan, his teammate through the last decade, feels that Sehwag's abilities should never be doubted due to a string of poor scores.

"I have always said that on his day, no bowler can stop him," the 'Turbanator' added.

"As his teammate, I really feel proud that a special player like him has achieved this feat. Not only us but each and every cricket fan in this country should feel proud about such an achievement," Harbhajan added.

Sehwag and Harbhajan have had mutual admiration for each other and the Nawab of Najafgarh in a recent interview to PTI had said that the off-spinner would soon make a comeback like he did in late 2007.

May be this innings from the swashbuckling opener can act as an inspiration for one of India's premier spinners.
