Virender Sehwag drops from the remaining Tests

Indian opening batsman, Virender Sehwag, has been struggling with the bat. He is now out of form. Because of his poor form, Indian selectors have dropped him from the squad for the remaining Test matches against Australia.
Selectors trimmed the squad to 14 and they did not call up anyone to replace Sehwag’s place. It is thought that Shikhar Dhawan would make open with Murali Vijay. Both Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay played very important role in the second Test match victory.
Virender Sehwag has so far scored just 27 runs in his three innings during the ongoing series. He needs prove his talent to make a come back in the squad.
Except the exclusion of veteran player Virender Sehwag, there were no other changes in the squad for the last two matches that will be played in Mohali on March 14 and Delhi on March 22 respectively.
Indian cricket team is now leading the series 2-0 after winning the first two Test matches in Chennai and Hyderabad.
Sehwag’s axing comes after his long-time opening partner Gautam Gambhir, who was also dropped due to his poor form.
