    Virender SehWAAAAAAHHHHHHg - upset at how he was dropped

    Sehwag 'hurt' by his ouster from India team | Cricket | ESPN Cricinfo

    Solid wahh from the great man.

    I was actually at the Hyderabad test when he got out, and at that time I had no idea it was his last knock ever. Still surprises me as it doesn't seem that long ago that he was dropped.

    Best bit is his quote about wanting to bat in the middle order and how Sachin wouldn't move from 4:

    "I told the management [about wanting to bat lower down] but they felt that I was still good enough to play as an opener and they didn't want to take chances with the opening pair. I tried my best but could not get an opportunity in the middle order," he said. "When I played my last series, Tendulkar was still there, Kohli and Dhoni were there. Pujara was playing as the No. 3 batsman. Tendulkar was playing at 4, Kohli at 5 and it meant that I had to bat at No. 6 after Tendulkar as you could not ask him to bat at No. 3 or 5. So, there was no chance for me to bat in the middle order."

    !!!

    Considering India has never properly replaced Ganguly at #6, do you think Sehwag should have been considered lower order with either him or someone else moving to 6? Or was Sehwag removed from the test team at the precise right time?

    Would have been funny to see him at 6 for a test only to be dropped for Rahane tbf

    Talk about sour grapes

    awesome player though. I still remember being nervous when a Test series against India would come up and they'd have a batting line-up of Sehwag, someone, Dravid, Tendulkar, Ganguly, Laxman and wondering how the **** we were supposed to take 20 wickets. Wouldn't have been anywhere near as intimidating without Sehwag at the top.

    He was dropped at the right time, though he'd still be pretty handy at home now, would take him ahead of Dhawan and Dravid jr.

    A lot of these legends were not treated properly by Dhoni and co. If they are not going to have them in team, discuss with them and see if they can be given a proper farewell and can retire at their own terms. It was almost like Dhoni wanted his yes men in the team and apart from Sachin got all past legends out one by one.

    This is almost a random hypothetical at this point but hands up, who of you'd rather have Sehwag over Rohit Sharma at No. 6 for the second half of 2016 when we're playing a ****load of home tests in spinning conditions?

    Not the first time he's had a cry. Doubt it'll be the last either.

    Absolute BS. He was dropped coz he sucked and there was no sign of an improvement happening in the near future.

    Keep crying. Any one who argues with any thing which affects your love of CSK players, you will cry a river.

    Mohinder Amarnath was part of the selection committee which decided to remove Dhoni from captaincy. However, BCCI outlawed it. It is no secret Dhoni got the team he wanted. Whether that's right or wrong is a different issue. However, when people try to discount it and try to convince themselves the reason the senior players were removed was just form, it's hilarious. Sehwag was a great player and the reason he is talking now is that he thought he was unfairly treated. I thought Laxman was poorly treater similarly.

    He was going through a terrible run of form, no? I remember being okay with him being dropped.
