Virender Sehwag is well known to make very direct comments which also attracts a lot of controversy and media reactions. He was once again in the limelight while giving his views on Indian team selection in the 1st T20.
Sehwag was extremely critical of Virat Kohli’s team selection process in the 1st T20I and said that whatever was told in the pre match press conference was not followed during the match . Viru was referring to Rohit’s exclusion from the XI in the 1st match while 24 hours ago Kohli had mentioned that Rohit and Rahul will start for India as openers. However it was Sikhar Dhawan who played instead of Rohit in 1st ODI
Sehwag was very unhappy on Rohit’s exclusion . He even said that who is Kohli to rest Rohit as Rohit has a big fan following and even Sehwag himself may not watch the game if Rohit is not playing .
Sehwag also asked whether Virat will rest himself and play Rohit in later matches as he rests Rohit , Ishant , Shami , Bumrah whenever he wishes but same does not apply to him as he is captain .
Wonder what will be Kohli’s reaction to the brutal comments made by Sehwag on his ruthless criticism of the Indian captain .
