sense of timing. Thursday was akha teej , the day you can do anything without consulting astrologers. Not just any akha teej ,
but apparently the most auspicious one in 70 years. And so,shaadi manaane ko Sehwag chala . But everything associated
with Sehwag just has to be tempestous. And so, a downpour duly engulfed Delhi, raising fears that the season's most awaited
match-up might be a washout. This day, though, there was going to be no raining on the Nawab of Najafgarh's parade.
Staff at 9 Ashoka Road Arun Jaitley's residence and the wedding's venue scurried around frantically. Fans of the pedestal kind
were pressed into service; the maroon satin and golden tissue curtains dried and hung up again. Picture-perfection was restored,
the stage set for Jea Band from Red Fort to make a grand entry at about 9 p m, huffing and puffing away to the sonorous strains of Bolo
Tara Ra Ra .The pandal at 9, Ashoka Road, Arun Jaitley’s residence and the venue of Sehwag’s wedding. More photos But wait a minute,
where was the munda himself? Logon dhoondo dhoondo might well have been played at this juncture, except that the band had
fallen silent. No, Sehwag hadn't been run out, just left behind somewhere in the course of switching over from the mandatory
mare to a car. The waiting began. In between, BCCI chief Jagmohan Dalmiya walked in and wished the couple an unbeaten century partnership.
Taaliyan, taaliyan . But still no sign of the groom. The band held its peace, only bursting into Aaj mere yaar ki shaadi hai when local BJP leader
Vijay Goel marched in. Meanwhile, the guests gave the decor a dekko . Nothing too fancy: lights on trees, a tastefully decorated stage
with golden drapes behind the thrones. The chairs were golden too,with maroon cushions, flanked by two dull gold pillars bedecked with flowers,
prominently orchids, carnations, roses and birds of paradise, reportedly brought in from ThailandContrary to reports of five-star spreads, the food was mostly shuddh shakahari bharatiya bhojan with nary a foie gras or caviar on bline in sight, provided by Dass Caterers of
R K Puram, who'd also catered the wedding of the bride's elder sister. The look-around was interrupted by a blast of music.
Pretty Woman the Main Hoon Na version blared from the dance floor set up in the lawn. Shortly thereafter, at around 10 pm,
Viru entered in a white Merc, wearing a colour-coordinated cream churidar kurta . He charged straight for the dressing-room.
A quick changeover into a brown sherwani later, he was out on the ground, ready to begin his new innings. Guests with a
sense of humour remarked upon the absence of a helmet. And the ceremonies commenced.
All the hustle and bustle at night was a far cry from the subdued atmosphere at Sehwag's house in Najafgarh earlier in the day.
Curtains were tightly drawn, doors and windows bolted, and umpteen policemen patrolled the house on all sides.
There was a brief dance routine by cousins and friends. The moment the music started, curious neighbours thronged
the entrance and climbed onto the rooftops for a glimpse. A family visit to the local temple evoked a similiar response,
with enthusiastic onlookers scaling the walls and cheering and clapping wildly. Viru didn't have a bat to raise in acknowledgment,
but he did smile and wave, all the while cutting a dashing figure in grey sherwani and red bandhni turban.
Virender Sehwag created history, by scoring the fastest ODI century by any Indian. Sehwag scored his 11th century off just 60 balls with 14 boundaries and 4 sixes. The previous record was held by former Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin, who had scored a century off 62 balls. Sehwag, who has been in tremendous form this season, batted explosively at Hamilton to reach the milestone. Chasing a victory target of 263 from 43 overs, India reached 169/0 in 19.2 overs, when rain stopped play yet again. Sehwag was batting on 108, while Gambhir was on 50. the match reduced to 36 overs when the play resumed. India now need 220 runs to win the match and series.
India is leading the five-match series 2-0. If India win this match, they will win the series in New Zealand after a long long time. Sehwag became the only Indian to score 3 centuries on New Zealand soil.
