100 gold coins for Viru

New Delhi: The Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) has decided to honour Virender Sehwag for playing 100 Test matches.

Sehwag, who is also the captain of Delhi in Ranji Trophy, reached this milestone when he took the field at the Wankhede, in the second Test of the four-match series against England

According to Chetan Chauhan, a former Test cricketer and currently the vice-president of DDCA, 100 gold coins will be presented to the dashing opener.

A gate or an enclosure at the Kotla would also be named after Sehwag, who has two triple centuries to his credit in Test cricket. The decision to honour Sehwag was taken in the executive committee meeting of the DDCA on Tuesday.

Asked when Sehwag would be presented the gold coins, Chauhan said that the DDCA was in touch with Sehwag and it would be done at the earliest available opportunity.
