We really missing Sehwag..?
May 8, 2010 7:35am CST
Our indian cricket team is feeling that there is need of a player who can occupy the place of sehwag. but they are fail to do so and they really miss sehwag in the opening down. murali vijay is not performing good in opening with gautam gambhir that is one reason in yesterday match we are unable to chase such a score and loss the match in a huge margin. What you think Who should come to join gambhir in opening down..?

We must never blame cricketers by one match. Only if they failing consistently we should think of their failure. In a match there are chances of winning and losing. no doubt that sehwag is good player. but there are times when he was also out of form. Murali vijay and gambhir will do good for our team. I hope like that.

surely viru is the big miss for india and the tournament. there is no one to repalce sehwag in world cricket. viru is always the best opener who give sparkling start, that makes the opposition onto the backfoot. now india is not geting that advantage, gauti is feeling miserable to bat with vijay. i dont know why gauti is not performing that too when viru is absent. from the start i didnt accepeted vjays inclusion in team instead of vijay. we need some one who is aggressive, we need someone who is fearless, we need someone who will hit the ball without considering the spin and swing, smash it smash it hard. well its hard to find the replacement for viru but i feel that Uthappa would have been a better choice instead of M.vijay. now i feel that injured sehwag in the team would have played better.

even when you say that Uthappa has improved, why do you avoid him? see i dont feel that vijay is playing attacking cricket, he is not at all playing well agaiunst the worldclass team. ofcourse he performed against afgan, but thats not what we need, we need him to give that blistering knock upfront, we need him to play fearless aggressive cricket, he is not capable of doing this against top class quality bowling. did he perform against SA and AUS? Uthappa can play fearlessly, he had opend for india in the past and he performs well on top order. he is the player who suits more for T20s we took him for odi and there he failed and dropped him. now you have the result in front of you, it clearly says that M.vijay is the wrong selection, then how can you back him? you say that his shot selection is poor then why do you back him to face the world class teams, that too for opening?

India should seriously think beyond Sehwag. We should not give an impression that Sehwag is the only player who can win matches for India. Indian selectors should keep on looking for the new openers who are very aggressive, if not India will struggle. Murali Vijay in my view should be tried more in international matches especially T20 format, selectors have done big mistake by selecting him in a major tournament like World Cup. Player like Robin Uttapppa should have been given a chance and these mistakes are done very much by selectors in every tournament. Whatever in my view India should not depend more on Sehwag.
