Indian cricket legend has some advice for struggling opening batsman form Delhi, who is experiencing one of his worst Ranji Trophy seasons of his long and glorious career

Sehwag only managed a half-century in eight Ranji matches for Delhi this season. From wearing contact lenses to batting in the middle order, Sehwag has virtually tried every solution to get back to form, but to no avail.

Gavaskar wants Sehwag to get back to his opening position. “I think he is more happy with the ball coming on to the bat. If you have opened the batting for such a long time, it is a little bit difficult waiting in the dressing room, waiting for your turn to go to bat.

The best move for him would be to go back to opening the batting,” the former India opener said. On Yuvraj Singh’s woeful form, he said: “In cricket, nothing is impossible.

You have one good season, you can come back. It is up to Yuvraj to show that he has got the burning desire. I think he has. For Sehwag too, nothing is impossible in cricket.”
