There are a lot of ways to get injured but the injury of Virender Sehwag was strange and funny. India were knocked out of the World T20 tournament in the final Super Eights match in the World Twenty20 against South Africa in Colombo.
During the match, Rohit Sharma took a good catch of the South African batsman Jacques Kallis. But he was not the one to be injured. Neither did Sehwag collide with him in an attempt to take the catch. The injury happened after the catch had been taken and the players were celebrating. It seems like Sehwag got too exited as he rushed in jubilation to congratulate fellow countryman for getting the wicket. As he jumped to hug Irfan Pathan, he must have twisted his ankle. Thee excitement was too much and the team did not notice as they hugged and necked while Sehwag, who was the first to give Pathan the hug, was now in pain. He had to be helped off the field. The injury means that he is doubtful for the Champions League T20 which means a huge financial loss for the master stroke maker.
However, Viru dada could make a miraculous recovery and get fit in time to booster his bank balance. It is worth remembering that just before the last IPL season, Sehwag had overcome a shoulder injury to declare himself fit. Lot of eyebrows were raised at that time and his injury and the miraculous recovery were questioned.
The question is whether he would be more interested in the CLT20 or the England series afterwards.
