New Delhi: Moments after announcing his retirement, Virender Sehwag said he would continue his association with the game of cricket either as a commentator or an academy coach.

"Cricket is my love, after retirement I will stay in cricket, maybe commentary or coaching in some academy," Viru told ANI.

The explosive batsman issued a statement on Tuesday, announcing his retirement from all forms of international cricket.
