Sehwag to miss World Twenty20 again
Advertisement
#1
Indian vice-captain Virender Sehwag will miss the World Twenty20 tournament for the second time in a row due to a shoulder injury, an official said yesterday.

The swashbuckling opener, 31, injured his shoulder while playing for the Delhi Daredevils franchise in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL).

Sehwag will be replaced in the 15-man squad by Murali Vijay, while Gautam Gambhir will take over as vice-captain to skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the Indian cricket board said in a statement.

Sehwag did not play in last year's World Twenty20 in England due to a shoulder injury sustained during the IPL held in South Africa.

India, who won the inaugural World Twenty20 in 2007, failed to make the semi-finals in the second edition.

The third edition of the 12-nation tournament will be played in the Caribbean from April 30 to May 16.
