Sehwag to replace Dhoni as India skipper in Tests: Reports

India’s embarrassing Test series loss against Australia might outcome in captain MS Dhoni losing his spot and Virender Sehwag taking over the charge in Test format, reports says. The BCCI authorities are considering on the move to replace Dhoni as the Indian skipper in Test format after India’s 8 straight losses in abroad conditions, which has also resulted in India dropping to the 3rd position in ICC Test ratings.

After England annihilation in 2011 where the Indian side lost 4-0, the earlier top positioned side in Test cricket was crushed 4-0 by Australia in the presently concluded Test series Down Under.On the other hand, Dhoni is likely to carry on as skipper for the limited-overs versions of the game, ODI and twenty 20.It’s considered that ego conflict between Sehwag and Dhoni is somewhat the cause of India’s disaster in Australia.

Sehwag isn’t pleased with the way Dhoni functions. Be it field positions during a Test match or promoting a fresh person, Sehwag feels his ideas aren’t heard. Also, Sehwag feels that he hasn’t got his due – captaincy – due to Dhoni and the Indian selectors now want to give him a possibility.
