The former dashing batter Virender Sehwag‘s son Aaryavir has started making huge strides. Aaryavir has been named to the Delhi U-16 squad for the Vijay Merchant Trophy. The right-handed batter was seen in the trial fixtures of Delhi U-16 where there was quite tough competition for spots.
The fifteen-year-old batter would be well aware of the fact that he needs huge runs under his belt. Already on social media, the netizens have started to tag nepotism and favoritism over his selection for Vijay Merchant Trophy.

DDCA on Aaryavir Sehwag
Delhi & District Cricket Association (DDCA) Junior Selection Committee Chairperson Akash Malhotra was having an interaction with cricketnext.com and was asked about Aaryavir Sehwag. “Not at all. He is not that type of batter. His footwork is very good and is a good student of the game. You know he was middling the ball really well. Footwork was correct and he played a lot in the V. That really impressed us.” said Akash Malhotra.

Great Chance for Aaryavir Sehwag
The dashing batter is quite unlike to Virender Sehwag as mentioned by Akash Malhotra. It’s quite interesting that the batter has been selected for playing in the ‘V’. Vijay Merchant Trophy is considered to be one of the most prestigious tournaments in Indian Cricket as it’s the stepping stone.
We all know that there’s cut-throat competition in Indian Circuit as the selectors have a strenuous task on their hands. The likes of Sarfaraz Khan & Prithvi Shaw are still fighting for a spot in the team even after scoring tons of runs in the domestic circuit; which says a lot about the competition.
