Virender Sehwag reveals the favourites of the upcoming 2019 World Cup

Virender Sehwag reveals the favourites of the upcoming 2019 World Cup”

Sehwag expressed that he was the one to notice Greg Chappell's email to the country's apex cricket governing body, BCCI which was directed against the inclusion of Ganguly in the 2005 Zimbabwe tour.

It was during a match in Zimbabwe that Sehwag had an upset stomach as he took a break and Sehwag got to see Chappell writing the email to Board outside the washroom.

Former Australian captain Chappell was appointed as head coach of the Indian cricket team in May 2005.

Speaking at the launch of Boria Majumdar's book "Eleven Gods and A Billion Indians", Sehwag narrated the story and said, "I used to take rest while fielding".

Sachin Tendulkar's autobiography Playing It My Way included an uncharitable passage about Chappell and Harbhajan Singh once said that he "destroyed Indian cricket to such an extent that it required at least three years to again get back on track". "We could have won the first or second Test (about the recent SA Test series) if we played one session well with the bat", said Sehwag according to quotes on Times of India.

Sehwag said: "The kind of ODI team we have, we are favourites to win the 2019 World Cup".

Team India will tour for an overseas Test tour to England in August 2018. "In our days, we had Srinath, Zaheer Khan, Ajit Agarkar and Ashish Nehra but these four never played together except in 2003".

That Australia may not have the suspended duo of Steve Smith and David Warner may make India firm favourites in Australia series. Quizzed if that would help Kohli and Co, Sehwag said, "It doesn't matter if they are there or not".

Former India batsman Virender Sehwag feels that India are now the favourites to take hom the 2019 World Cup. We bought him for Rs 2 crore and if he wins two game, I recover my money.

Sehwag was asked to recall his most memorable moment as a cricketer. "Nobody is a greater entertainer than him", Sehwag said.

Dropped for the first two games, Gayle helped Punjab beat Chennai Super Kings by notching up a 33-ball 63 before the hundred. His inconsistency in the last season was to blame for this as he managed just 200 runs in 9 games at an average of 22.22 with one score of fifty-plus.

"He was suffering from a bad back and he missed a lot of games. I was expecting Gayle to do this", Sehwag said.

"If I don't play him in the XI, he is a good guy for marketing deals - it's my job", he added. "I told him he is writing something to the BCCI and it's something serious". He fits in our group also. "He's a big asset for KXIP now", Sehwag added.
