Sehwag and the art of batting

Akhila Ranganna

Virender Sehwag talks to Shirin Sadikot on his batting philosophy, his strengths as a batsman, his changing approach towards batting, his seemingly unshakable confidence and more. More from an interview on

Is your batting philosophy as simple as, ‘see ball, hit ball’?
Absolutely yes. If I see the ball, Ii try to hit it. As a kid, I played a lot of 10-12 over matches. I was a middle-order batsman then. I got to face only 15-16-odd balls and had to make the most of them. Since then my approach has been to score off every ball. That style has stuck with me at the international level as well.
