Dubai: Virender Sehwag dismissed the possibility of retiring from international cricket. He sent a two words message to a reporter saying “Not yet”.
One of India’s greatest cricketers, Virender Sehwag had said on Monday that he will draw curtains on his international career soon as he confirmed his participation in next year’s Masters Champions League 2020, where only retired cricketers can play.
Sehwag’s decision comes only two days after one of his contemporaries Zaheer Khan decided to call time on his career. A day before his 37th birthday, Sehwag was today unveiled at the launch ceremony of the veterans 2020 league in Dubai.
When Sehwag, who was present alongside Brian Lara, Graeme Smith and Azhar Mahmood at the launch, was asked how he could play as MCL is a retired cricketers’ league, Sehwag said “If I am not retired I will not play. I will go back to India and announce my retirement.”
MCL is supposed to be played in February next year, which means that Sehwag will complete his Ranji Trophy commitments with Haryana before joining the veterans’ league.
