Virender Sehwag ‘Happy’ About MS Dhoni’s Removal As RPS Skipper

Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag recently spoke at length about the upcoming Test series against Australia. Virender Sehwag described the current national cricket team as the strongest he had seen and predicted a 3-0 or 3-1 win in the upcoming Test series against Australia.
Removal of MS Dhoni as skipper of the Rising Pune Supergiants is a very sad decision. But, one person is very happy over there. None other than Sehwag, he quoted the same in a recent interview. However, he said it in his own style as witty as possible.
Best Balanced Indian Team:
“The balance that this team has, the quality of their fast bowlers and spinners accompanied by the batting firepower makes this the best Indian team. This team has the capability of winning a Test series abroad,” Sehwag said
Sehwag, however, warned the Indian team against the law of averages catching up. “This team has been playing fantastic cricket. They have won 8 of their last 9 Tests and that is a great achievement. But the law of averages catches up with every team and in my reading, there will be a Test in this series where the bowling might not fire or the batsmen will slip up,” he added.
A Word About Virat Kohli:
The 38-year-old Sehwag heaped praise on Indian captain Virat Kohli, terming him the best player in all three forms in world cricket at present. “Virat has matured hugely. He is a world-class player and I think that he might break all records in a format by the time he calls time on his career,” he said.
Sehwag Happy Because Dhoni is NOT A Captain:
The former cricketer had a word for former Indian skipper MS Dhoni too. Dhoni was recently sacked as the Rising Pune Supergiants skipper in the IPL.
Virender Sehwag quoted, “I am happy that he isn’t captain because maybe now my team, Kings XI Punjab, can beat this Pune team. On a serious note, I believe that this is an internal decision of the franchise but he is one of the best ever captains India has ever had.”
India are scheduled to host Australia for a four-match Test series starting on February 23 at Pune. Let’s wait and see whether Sehwag prediction will come true or not.
