Virender Sehwag may be axed for England ODIs Zeenews Sports Bureau

New Delhi: Out-of-form opener Virender Sehwag is all set to be sacked from the ODI team that would take on England in the upcoming series. The selectors, who will meet on Sunday to select the team, would have no option but to omit the Delhi batsman after some very ordinary performances with the bat in the recent past.

"Sehwag is a big player and the selectors are hoping he will score runs at the Kotla. If he is dropped for the England ODIs, his place in the Test team will also be in question. The team needs an in-form Sehwag for the Australia Test series, especially at a time when there is no Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman," TOI quoted a BCCI source as saying.

Not only Sehwag, some younger players like Rohit Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja are also under the scanner for poor their show. It was learnt that the selectors are not happy with Rohit Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja’s performance with the bat.

After his superb show in Tests, Cheteshwar Pujara might get a look-in in ODIs, too. He can replace Rohit Sharma in the middle-order.

If Sehwag be axed, Ajinkya Rahane will open the innings with Gautam Gambhir in the ODIs against England.

The third and final ODI against Pakistan in Delhi on Sunday may prove to be a very crucial match in Sehwag’s ODI career. If he fails to score in front of his home crowd, no one can save him from being axed.

It is very unfair to drop Sehwag who have scored 8,000 runs both in tests and ODI`s and has many unique distinctions both in Tests and ODIs.No doubt he is not scoring recently. Pity in India Sachin and Sehwag always expected to score centuries when ever they come to crease.Both of them scored 73 test centuries and 64 one day test centuries.Sachin is forced to retire.Slowly the ors want to replace Sehwag in tests so that Mr M.S.Dhoni`s leadership and autocratic style is unquestioned.In our Country we have different standards for different cricketers.In any other country Dhoni would have been replaced for his failures as Captain.Loosing 10 out 0f 11 Tests.He blames everybody except himself for the team failures.As long as Srinivasan is there Dhoni will be the Captain of India.
