Sehwag is fast becoming a liability

Sehwag's poor form and incapability to counter Australia's rampant pace attack is one of the biggest reasons why India are suffering in the ongoing Test series.

Sehwag has become one of the softest targets for the Australian bowling lineup because their bowlers are well aware that Sehwag will rarely play sensibly, irrespective of what the situation is. They are continuously bowling him out side the off stump on a good length and forcing him to play on the front foot and making him edge the deliveries

Sehwag is making no effort to see off the difficult period and help India get good starts. His dismissal early on is putting the pressure on the middle order and hence resulting in disastrous showings, innings after innings. Sehwag has been playing Test cricket for a decade but on this tour his lack of maturity and responsibility has added significantly to India’s suffering. The time is not far when he will be seen as a liability at the top.

Sehwag is one of the most entertaining batsmen in the world and plays the game on his terms. Domination is his game. Occupation without domination does not interest him at all but there comes a time when you have to play more for team and have to change the game according to the situation demands. If he really wants to his name in the bracket of Tendulkar, Ponting and Dravid then its high time Sehwag changes his technique in Test cricket.............

BCCI needs to look into his stats and then decide whether to pick him up for the fourth Test or to bring in Rohit Sharma and open with Rahul Dravid who has virtually opened the innings with India losing their first wicket early in each of the three Tests.
