Sehwag, Gambhir, Kohli, Nehra and Unmukt gear up for Ranji game
He hasn't been in the best of form of late and Virender Sehwag's body language during his first day with the Delhi Ranji Trophy squad said it all.
The 'Nawab of Najafgarh' looked pretty rusty during his first session at the state team's nets where not only seasoned pros like Ashish Nehra and Ishant Sharma but also some of the net bowlers troubled him with pace and bounce.
On November 4, 2012, Sehwag will complete two years in Test cricket without a century with his last (173) coming against New Zealand on November 4, 2010 in Ahmedabad.
Although he occasionally cracked a joke with seniors like Mithun Manhas and Rajat Bhatia, but the veteran of 98 Tests wore a grumpy look for the better part of the session.
The opening Ranji Trophy game against Uttar Pradesh from November 2-5 at Ghaziabad will be an acid test for the 34-year-old who needs to fire badly against England if India aim to win the series 4-0.
