Sehwag was looking a lot like a man having taken his place in the team for granted, wasnt he? A lot like Sourav Ganguly of the yore. The prince of Kolkata went back, worked on his cricket, did a lot of thinking and came back afresh as a different man. Not radically different. But just that slight change in attitude required to survive the expectations and pressures of competitive cricket in India. He is still the same cricket player (he's still clumsy with the short ball), but he is a different human being. And one of cricket's most watchable piercers of the off-side field IS BACK, atleast as of now.
Now, Sehwag has been dropped for the coming cricket series against the West Indians. And he too will have to emulate Ganguly. And I dare to say HE WILL. He will untangle the knots in his head (not the hair! he's bald for God's sake!) and come back as the same attacking and free-wheeling cricketer but as a whole new human being. He will play and miss. He will top-edge the cricket ball into the boundary behind the slip cordon and all that. But he will never take things for granted again. A changed VIRU WILL BE BACK! Much quicker than Sourav. You hear that?
And as I say that I should also mention that Sehwag's future will depend on how well or how bad Robin Uthappa (his replacement) performs, doesnt it? Ganguly got in riding on the back of other's failures. Sehwag might require something similar now. So if I was Sehwag, I would be rushing to the nearest temple and praying for. . . . . . er. . . . . . well. . . . . . . you know what!
