New Delhi, (Jagranpost Network): He is the Gary Sobers of modern generation. Sehwag just knows one way to play- take the attack to the opposition and thrash the ball over the boundary line. Sehwag is a ruthless hitter the ball and spares no bowler from his fiery outburst.
With not much of the foot movement, Sehwag largely depends on his hand-eye coordination for his stroke play. If he gets a start, Sehwag generally goes onto to play a long innings. However, his style of play involves high risk and opposition is always in with a chance to pick up his wicket.

The big asset of the blistering right-hander is the rate with which he scores his runs. Whether it is an ODI or Test match, he strikes at over run-a-ball. Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir form a formidable opening pair and lay solid foundation at the top of the order for the following batsman to follow.

Sehwag can also roll his arm over and is regarded as a partnership breaker. With his subtle off-spin, he foxes the batsman and is a tough customer to score off. Sehwag makes things happen on the field and skipper Dhoni often turns to the man with the golden arm to provide a breakthrough for Team India.

Sehwag will hold the key for India in the World Cup at the top, if he can provide a quick fire start, India will have their work cut out.
