VAUGHAN POINTS TO INDIA

Michael Vaughan has said that he wants India to be an example for the UK in terms of cricket. India are the clear 4.4 favourites and that’s for a reason. I was going to try and identify who I thought their best players were but before I knew it I’d found myself jotting down seven or eight names; they’re that good and their side has that many match winners. If I were to pick just one though it would be that man Virender Sehwag.

People talk about him as one of the great entertainers but that only tells half the story. Those big sixes at the top of the order are great to watch but dispatching the opening bowlers to every part of the ground also puts the opposition under huge pressure from very early on. He scores plenty of runs and he scores them very quickly and is probably the player in world cricket who is most capable of winning a match on his own.
