Sehwag dismisses speculation about retirement, says ‘not yet’

One of India’s greatest cricketers, Virender Sehwag, on Monday dismissed speculation of his imminent retirement. When contacted by The Indian Express, Sehwag texted saying: “Not yet.”

Sehwag told the news portal that I am not announcing my retirement right now because I have the whole domestic season coming up. However, I don’t think I am going to figure in India’s international scheme of things any more. Therefore, I might come back to India and announce my retirement from international cricket.”

The explosive batsman, who currently captains Haryana in Ranji trophy, first dropped a hint as he confirmed his participation in next year’s Masters Champions League 2020, where only retired cricketers can play.
