India vs Australia 2013: Will Sehwag-Dhawan make a better opening combination?Zeenews Sports Bureau

New Delhi: While most of the Indian batsmen found some form in the Chennai Test, India’s wait for a formidable opening partnership is likely to extend.

Following a series of poor performances, selectors axed left-hander Gautam Gambhir as they announced the team for the ongoing Australian series. Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay were brought back into the squad.

Murali managed to score just 16 runs in both the innings and was dismissed by Pattinson, who looked Australia’s best bowler. The selectors could probably give a chance to Dhawan who has been in good form of late, as he has scored four first-class centuries and a total of 833 runs this season.

Sehwag is himself under-fire after failing to convert those starts into big scores. The only positive for him was the ton he scored against England in the recently concluded Test series, which may still not be sufficient to keep him in the team for much longer.

Viru always make bowlers to think twice before they bowl becaus viru neither in form nor out of form. So dawan and viru will be gud openers.
