‘You are not Hayden or Gilchrist.. play according to your standards’: Virender Sehwag

Legendary Indian Cricketer Virendra Sehwag slammed all-rounder Shakib AI Hasan for the 4-run loss of Bangladesh against  South Africa. Shakib in this game only scored 3 runs off four balls in the losing cause against the Proteas.

Sehwag on this loss said that he is not a Hayden or Gilchrist to play pull shots on short delivery and should play as power his standards.

Sehwag speaking to Cricbuzz, said,

“If he was included in the squad for experience, we could not see it. At least spend some time at this wicket, it is not like you are not Hayden or Gilchrist who can play a pull shot of a short ball, you are just a player from Bangladesh.

Play according to your standards. When you are not able to play hook or pull, so play the strokes that you know.”

“I felt that Shakib’s time in T20 cricket was up a long time back, during the last T20 World Cup. He has been captain for such a long time, he is such a senior player, and after that, if your numbers are like these, he should be ashamed of it, right?” he added.

“Even he should realize that he is not cut out for T20s anymore, and announce retirement. When I played the 2012 T20 World Cup in Sri Lanka, I realized that the likes of Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel, and then there was this left-arm pacer from Afghanistan, I was not able to score against them at will. So, I straight up told the selectors to not consider me for the format anymore.

Because, at the end of the day, you know your level and when you are not able to contribute, then what is the point of playing? So, I don’t think he should play or be played,” Sehwag concluded.
