Sehwag will open in the first match of Kings XI Punjab
Former Indian cricketer Virender Sahwag, who is one of the world’s most explosive batsmen, is coming again to entertain the audience. By the way, Viru had said goodbye to cricket in 2015, but now it will be seen only for a special reason opening a match. In fact, Sehwag will open in the first match of Kings XI Punjab against Delhi Daredevils on April 8. Kings XI Punjab has tweeted this information itself and said that in the absence of Aaron Finch in the first match Sehwag will take the responsibility of the team opening.
The news of Kings XI’s website says that on 8th April, Punjab’s first match against Delhi is in Mohali. Punjab opener Aaron Finch will not play in this match. That’s why team management has decided that Sehwag will be opening this match. Sehwag had played 62 balls for 31 balls in the match of Ice Cricket a few days earlier. Sehwag practiced at the Nets before this decision, and even then he appeared in the entire form. According to the release issued by Kings XI Punjab, the decision was taken by Team Captain Ravichandran Ashwin, coach Brad Hodge and team management during the team preparatory camp in Mohali. Sehwag, who heads the Kings XI Punjab Cricket Operations, was also present in the meeting. Sehwag was last seen in the field during the St Moritz Ice Cricket Tournament in February this year.
