Virender Sehwag registered the highest individual score in the 50-over format on Thursday, blasting 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.
