Virender Sehwag: Rotate pacers to avoid injury

Posted by Admin On 11:10 AM

Dashing India opener Virender Sehwag believes the only way to avoid injury is to rotate the fast bowlers by giving them regular break.It's important that the team managing ensures that they don't play too many matches. Fast bowlers are prone to injuries and when they get upset their pace goes,Sehwag said.
Besides, when you are injured, your reply becomes very difficult,he added.Sehwag, who is looking forward to the series against West Indies after recovering from a shoulder injury, said any decision to have dissimilar teams for Tests and the shorter versions of the game lies entirely with the selectors.
A cricketer's passion is to play for the country. If somebody says he's tired, he can talk to the team management. MSDhoni was not given rest on his request, because there were too many injuries in the team,he said.
The 33-year-old said he was very frustrated when he got injured and admitted that he made a error by playing in England when he had not fully recovered.I knew I was needed. I tried my best but I realized that I quick my comeback in England. It was a tricky time in England for the whole team... so many injuries, he said.
The Delhi Daredevils skipper also rejected the perception that Indian players prefer IPL over playing Test matches and said this whole club over country debate was ridiculous.
Tell me one cricketer who has said that. It's a perception that the media and ex-cricketers have. Every youngster dreams of playing Tests. There is not a single Indian or for that matter international cricketer who has taken departure from Tests and ODIs to play IPL,he said.
I played the World Cup with injuries, Sachin played when he had a fractured toe or other injuries. People are not aware of this,he said. Sehwag said nobody will be able to replace Sachin Tendulkar.
Nobody will ever play for as long as Sachin has however well he may be.There can never be another Sachin,he said. Sehwag felt Indian cricket is in safe hands with so many youth playing well.
The Delhi cricketer singled out Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma as the players who will carry Indian cricket forward.When the seniors retire, I have full faith in these gifted youth taking their place. There may be a problem for a year or two, but Indian cricket is in safe hands.
