The Delhi dasher struck his 14th ODI century with the help of nine fours and a six.
Sehwag’s partner Mater Blaster Sachin Tendulkar was earlier run out by Shakib Al Hasan at the score of 28 runs.
Bangladesh spinner Mahmudullah later clean bowled Gautam Gambhir, who was looking good on 39 in the 24th over of the match.
The current score of the Indian Team is 300/2 at the end of 41.5 overs. Virat Kohli has joined the party with Sehwag, and is presently playing on 66.
