The ODI Series between India Vs. Sri Lanka: The Last Chance for Virendra Shewag?

Virender Shewag, one of the most common names of Indian cricket in the recent years, is now under the threat of being irregular. This hard hitter dashing batsmen has played some of the crucial and excellent innings in both ODI and Test Cricket. However, now-a-days he is struggling for runs and could not do well in the last two series which has eventually made him out of the team for the last series between South Africa and India. However, the owner of the highest run scorer in an innings for India has again called for the ongoing Sri Lanka-India series In the last 10 matches he has just a half century and his batting average in the last 10 innings is not even 20 whereas his career average is about 39.

So, it is clear that the series against Sri Lanka is very crucial for the opening batsman and the last chance to prove his form before the World Cup Cricket 2007. That is why, it can easily be said that this right handed benevolent batsman is now under a huge pressure. However, I think he has already proven his class and skill as a batsman and now what is needed now is that to repeat some of his previous performance. Good luck Shewag.
