Sehwag vows the runs will come

Indian opening batsman Virender Sehwag has promised captain Rahul Dravid that he will score plenty of runs in the World Cup and prove him right to have faith in his ability.

Sehwag has struggled with the bat recently and only managed scores of 28 and 0 in India’s two warm-up matches against the Netherlands and the West Indies.

Sehwag told Sky Sports that “The backing I’ve received from Dravid has been a huge morale booster. I now want to justify the faith in me and live up to the expectations.”

Sehwag has struggled with the bat for sometime now and was dropped after the Champions Trophy in October, but was brought back for the later half of their recent tour of South Africa.

Sehwag went onto tell Sky Sports that “I did a lot of meditation. I’m quite happy with my form now. It’s getting better and better with every session in the nets.”
