But Rohit Sharma was excluded in the first match.
Virender Sehwag is upset
Former India opener Virender Sehwag is not happy when Rohit Sharma was not played in the first match. Talking to Cricbuzz, Sehwag said, “Virat has said that Rohit Sharma will not play in the first two matches, but if India loses then will this strategy continue?” Defeat makes a lot of difference to the team. If I were the captain, I would have brought my best team. If Rohit Sharma is present, then he should be kept in the team. Public comes to see players like Rohit. I am his fan myself. If he does not play, my TV will be turned off.
