The entire short ball problem has been caused due to absence of Sehwag. He scores 30-40 of 20 balls and we are easily 50 runs in 5 overs.And this gives batsman at the other end time to play slowly. Gambhir and Vijay are the worst T20 opener ever. It is similar to Smith and Kallis. But due to absence of sehwagwe simply don't have anybody at the top to dismantle opposition.And so opposition bowlers are making merry . .
What happened to short ball in test matches? Sehwag starts hitting from the first ball itself.So nobody bothers to ball short to him.
