India needs to play sehwag in almost every match wheter he is in form or not, but somehow Dhoni thinks otherway, sehwag and dhoni both have negative vibes between them but they dont make it public, if somebody has spoiled the carreer of sehwag then it is dhoni, mere presence of sehwag in any tournament creates the fear in the minds of opposition team, look at the team of srilanka and pakistan they dont drop there legendary batsmen, Dilshan, afridi both were not in the form but still they r given opportunities, why india cant play sehwag, yes sehwag has nothing to prove to anyone because talent has not to be proved it is always evident.Although i am delhitee i support daredevils but i will support sehwag except in the match against delhi daredevils.Sehwag is a gem and should be given opportunity in every match, what rohit sharma has done as opener, he is nowhere near to sehwag's record, sehwag should be brought back into indian team in all formats of cricket.

Mr Sehwag- It is unfair to say you do not have to prove anything to anyone!. You definitely have to prove (1) Fitness (2) Form & (3) high performance, before you will be considered FOR the spot which was 100% Yours, but Lost IT. We the Fans are 100% behind you if you are serious about all the 3 attributes mentioned above. The Selectors & India needs a Sehwag who can score like he did 3 years back. India needs to fill at least one opening batsman's vacancy. Please do not forget there is a long Waiting List led by Robin Uttappa- who has been denied this spot despite meeting all the above 3 requirements! Uttappa would be a "shoe-in" as an opener if the selection is on current form. He is miles ahead of all + has playing experience in T20 & ODI. Put Uttappa like numbers on board then Sehwag can be in too. I would say Vijay. Rohit & Dhawan are all hanging in there by the skin of their teeth!. India needs New guys or "Sehwag of Old ". Age is just a # if you score heavily - Good Luck Viru!

Regardless of the bragging and the self-obsession by Sehwag (going by his words), i still don't see him playing for India again. Period.
