Sehwag says ' I am grateful to Ganguly'

#1
India batsman Virender Sehwag today expressed his gratitude to Sourav Ganguly, saying it was the former skipper who instilled confidence in him by giving him the opportunity to open the innings.

"I shall always be grateful to Sourav. He was the one who brought me up from middle-order to open the innings. He told me that if I don?t perform as an opener then I will be shifted to the middle-order," Sehwag said, when asked about the turning point of his career.

The Delhi dasher cracked a blistering 293 in the third and final cricket Test against Sri Lanka to help India win the match and wrapped up the series 2-0 here today.

Sehwag's 254-ball innings bagged him the Man of the Match and the Player of the Series and helped India become the Number one Test side in the world.
