Gautam Gambhir, who played along side Sehwag, both in the domestic as well as the International circuit feels that India will never have another Virender Sehwag in near future. The fact that he had a very uncomplicated mind allowed him to play his natural game and not fear about the result. Sehwag was one of the few who never bothered to go after the copy book technique, but he certainly has a record which is much better than most .

The other aspect Gambhir pointed out was that most players tend to change their game when they pass through lean phase, looking after their weaknesses, but in case of Sehwag, he never did so. He continued to play his natural game, which was much on hand-eye co-ordination.

He pointed out that doing all this is not easy, especially in the current era, where media is always after you once you fail. But Sehwag did stuck to his self belief.

India had a decent amount of success when both Gambhir and Sehwag were opening for India in all the three formats of the game. Gambhir added that both, he and Sehwag, were completely contrasting personalities, but their success lied in the fact that they understood each other’s game. Also, they had played a lot of domestic matches together for Delhi, which helped them at the International scene.
