Vettori says Sehwag just too good

The Indian batting continues to impress, but is getting somewhat annoying, especially for the New Zealand cricketers.

Virender Sehwag scored the fastest one-day century ever by an Indian as they reached 201 without loss in reply to New Zealand's 270 for five in Wednesday night's fourth match in Hamilton.

Rain then prevented any further play with the Indians winning by 10 wickets under the Duckworth Lewis system.

Black Caps captain Dan Vettori thinks their bowling actually did improve in Hamilton but Sehwag just played exceptionally well.

Vettori says Sehwag's opening partner Gautum Ghambir played a good complementary role and turned the strike over to him, and the New Zealand bowlers weren't accurate enough on another small park.
