Sehwag who was sitting in the dugout smiled at Sachin after he returned and Sachin passed a smile to him as well.

Sehwag went on to talk about the conversation they had after this in a press conference and said, "Sachin told me I know why you are smiling, I asked why. He said you are thinking that I got out before making a century, if I scored the ton we would have lost. I said to him how can you read what is in my heart, you made two centuries one we lost and the second got tied. Thank god he didn't make a hundred and we were able to win the World Cup."
