Twitter shouts: All hail Virender Sehwag

India's Virender Sehwag registered the highest individual score in the 50-over format on Thursday with a blistering 219 in the fourth one-day international against West Indies at Indore.

Playing his 240th one-day international, the 33-year-old right-handed batsman overtook compatriot Sachin Tendulkar, a player he was often compared to early in his career.

Tendulkar had scored 200 not out against South Africa in Gwalior on Feb 24, 2010.

Sehwag's previous highest ODI score of 175 came against Bangladesh in the Feb 19 World Cup match in Dhaka. Here's what some of Sehwag's mates were saying on twitter as they watched him scale another peak.
