Sehwag was once no longer glad to look Dhawan and Bhuvneshwar sit down out and got here down closely on the Indian skipper for except for each the gamers.
“Observing Virat Kohli exclude Shikhar Dhawan for only one Check failure, and Bhuvneshwar for no explanation why in any respect, Kohli must drop himself within the 3rd Check at Johannesburg, if he fails to accomplish in Centurion,” Sehwag instructed India TV.
Bhuvneshwar was once the pick out of the bowlers for India as he picked up six wickets within the closing Check tournament at Newlands, Cape The city.
