Virender Sehwag rubbished suggestions that it's a revenge series against England

India, who will play four Tests against Alastair Cook & Co from November 15 in Ahmedabad, were whitewashed 0-4 last year in England. “We are not here for revenge. All this is due to media hype. We are concentrating on playing well and winning for the team and country,” he said.

“They are a good side, but so are we. We are preparing well for the series. We are confident of playing good cricket against them. We have a practice camp before the series starting November 9. I think it will be a tough series for both teams,” Sehwag added.

The India opener was delighted to score a vital ton in the Ranji Trophy opener for Delhi on Monday. “I am happy that I scored a ton against Uttar Pradesh. Whether I am back in form or not, is not for me to decide, but I thought I played well enough and hope to do well (against England).”
