New Delhi: There was a time when Virender Sehwag demolished the best of the bowling attack all across the world with his fearless play. But his form of late had been pathetic, which forced his franchise Delhi Daredevils to drop him.

Delhi Daredevils retained none of their players and they are looking to make a fresh start at the upcoming IPL auctions, to be held in Bangalore on February 12, 13. Despite having world class players like David Warner and Kevin Pietersen in their squad, the Daredevils had a forgettable IPL 6 where they were at the bottom of the points table after losing 13 out of 16 matches.

A major reason for their failure was the form of Sehwag, who couldn`t find back his rhythm even in the domestic season. Sehwag couldn`t do much with the bat in the Ranji Trophy and even though Indian openers aren`t doing well overseas, Sehwag`s name isn`t in the minds of selectors.

Meanwhile, Viru along with another discarded Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh have kept their base price in the highest bracket of Rs 2 crore for the upcoming auctions of the seventh edition of Indian Premier League.

While it is yet to be seen whether there are any buyers for Sehwag, the 35-year-old will have to play his heart out if he is selected, if he entertains any chances of making a comeback into the Indian team.
