He definitely is irreplaceable in the hearts of all the cricket fans. I hope to see another triple ton before he bows out.

what's the point of dropping him and not getting a replacement. at least if he was still in the squad, australia might be wasting their time planning against him. bcci just saved a bunch of headache for the visitors.

His bright days are over.. Why can"t he retire with some respect? Is it neccessary for a player playing until he gets floored?

Hope this policy is followed by selectors in future too by selecting players based on form rather than reputation

Really bad to know Sehwag was dropped..but it was about to happen after his poor run of form. Hope that he will get a chance in the near future.

Keep up the good work, Satish.

Where are his spectacles? And Viru looks pathetic in this picture. One thing for sure, we do not want to miss Viru for long and would like to see him bounce back with great performances as an opener or in the middle order (preferably)

Subtle! Excellent Work Satish :D

That is a bloody true story but the sad part is we'll all miss Viru. It is just so tough to stage a comeback in the 30's. If he is recalled then it will be so unjust to Wasim Jaffer for not giving his golden chance to represent India.
