Zeenews Sports Bureau
New Delhi: Virender Sehwag slammed the media for ‘twisting’ his comments to ‘make it newsworthy’ hours after his earlier comments that indicated captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is not the reason for World Cup triumphs but a strong Indian team.

“Unfortunate when a comment is twisted to make it newsworthy. Gist of what I said: we had a great team and thus we have won 2 WCups under MSD,” he wrote on twitter.
“MSD is a good captain and one of the most successful captains we have had. To imply anything else from my statement was irresponsible,” he added.
Sehwag, whose differences with captain Dhoni came to fore during last year`s Australian tour, on Friday appeared to take a jibe at the skipper and the comments immediately attracted media attention.
"Dhoni got a very strong team. When you get a strong team, it is easier to perform well just like Australia did at one point of time. Australia won three World Cups because they had a strong team and not just because of the captain. We believe we have a very strong team and that`s why we won World Cup, backed by Dhoni`s captaincy," Sehwag had said.
