I am not sure if this is correct. Doesn't Sehwag NOT want captaincy to begin with? I am pretty sure I saw an interview where he doesn't want to be captain/vice captain. Then there was the time where he forked over captaincy to Gambhir while both played for Delhi Daredevils.

At Sanketh: Chris Gayle also has two triple centuries and 2 five wicket hauls in Test cricket.

This is just good for humor only....b'coz Sehwag is really selfless player who play for his team not for any personal achievements. Hope he will get the chance to play ODI's and T20.

Come on guys. Take a joke. It's a good cartoon drawing some valid humour. Lighten up.

Good work Satish's. Sometimes, people take the humor very personal, but this is a great cartoon......As always, you are the best.
