"He was playing very well with no tension. That day, he was singing some Kishore Kumar songs. He was not feeling any kind of tension," Raina, who scored 55 in a 140-run partnership with Sehwag for the second wicket, said during a youth summit programme here on Saturday.

Sehwag surpassed Sachin Tendulkar's 200 not out (which he scored against South Africa in Gwalior last year) for the highest ODI individual score on Thursday.

Besides Raina, young off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and chief selector Krishnamachari Srikkanth were also present at the youth summit. 

Srikkanth looked confident of India putting up a good show in Australia later this month. "We are doing well. Most importantly, every member of the team is contributing, so we're confident," Srikkanth said.
