Sehwag’s Superstition And India’s First Win

India started its World Cup 2011 journey by defeating its neighbor country Bangladesh by a margin of 87 runs. The day and night match was held at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka. Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan won the toss and elected to field. India started off well and made a massive score of 370 runs. In response Bangladesh made a score of 283/9. Virendra Sehwag scored 175 runs, which is his highest score in ODI. But the interesting fact is that Sehwag played this match wearing a numberless jersey that just went unnoticed by all.
