Sehwag century downs Durham

FORMER India opening batsman Virender Sehwag struck a quickfire century to earn Marylebone Cricket Club a six-wicket win against Durham in the County Championship season curtain-raiser in Abu Dhabi yesterday.

Sehwag scored 109 runs off 97 balls as the MCC reached their victory target of 225.

In Bangladesh, England’s women got their World Twenty20 campaign back on track with victory over India by five wickets.

Anya Shrubsole took three wickets as India were limited to 95-9, before England reached 98-5 with 11 balls to spare, making amends for Monday’s defeat to West Indies.
