Former India opener Virender Sehwag in a chat show recently revealed his new year resolution. With every new year, we all welcome inevitable optimism of fresh starts and new beginnings.
The hard-hitting opener has made a name for himself in the commentary box after his retirement. In a short span of time, Sehwag has created a huge fan base with his humour. Behind the mic, Sehwag is known to speak his mind and just like his fearless attitude with the bat.
The 39-year-old Sehwag in a chat show named ‘Cricket Ki Baat’ mentioned that he is planning to take a break from commentary. Since making his debut as a Hindi commentator, the Nawab of Nazafgarh has come up with interesting one-liners and his articulation.
Earlier, Sehwag has admitted that captain Virat Kohli will lead from the front during the three-match Test series against South Africa, starting on January 5.
“I am sure Virat Kohli will lead from the front. He will score a lot of runs,” 39-year-old Sehwag said.
After an unbeaten home run decimating Sri Lanka, New Zealand, and Australia, India will start their important campaign against South Africa. India will play three Test matches, followed by six ODIs and three T20Is. India will also be due to travel to England and Australia in the next 18 months.
Sehwag further admitted that this series would be the biggest challenge for India and Virat Kohli.
“The year 2018 is starting with a big challenge. The tour of South Africa will be India and Virat Kohli’s biggest challenge this year. If Virat manages to win the series, he will be the first Indian captain to do so,” Sehwag stated.
“As a captain, you need to have a clear strategy in place in South Africa… how to get rid of their batsmen, how to handle their fast bowlers. It is important to implement them on the field,” Sehwag signed off.
