Virender Sehwag out of T20 World Cup

New Delhi, June 09: India’s opening batsman Virender Sehwag has been ruled out of the ongoing ICC Twenty20 World Cup in England due to a shoulder injury.

Sehwag was advised to undergo a surgery for his shoulder injury, sources said.

The hard-hitting batsman, earlier, had to skip the opening match against Bangladesh including all the practice matches.

After Sehwag’s initial injury, Dhoni gambled with Rohit Sharma as Gautam Gambhir’s partner to open the innings. Rohit played well in the opening slot, and now, Rohit Sharma is likely to open for India in all the matches of the Twenty20 World Cup in England.
