Even as an active player, Virender Sehwag was someone who used to speak right from his heart, straight and clear but the since the day he has retired, Sehwag has become more aggressive as he never leaves any occasion to speak the truth and also tell his opinion on an issue.
Recently, he sparked a controversy when he said that he could not become the Head Coch of Indian cricket team because he did not have any setting BCCI. Though he later cleared it by saying that it was a joke, the damage was already done.

This time, the former Indian batsman has attacked the Australian players as he thinks that the Aussies did not sledge the Indian team due to mega IPL auction next year,
“They (Australian players) are scared because of the next year’s mega IPL auctions. If they had sledged the Indian players in the ODI series, then the Indian franchise owners might think before bidding high for the Australian players. This can also be a reason for them not to get involved in sledging with their Indian counterparts,” Sehwag told India TV.
The series between India and Australia was expected to be full of on-field emotions, keeping in mind the events that took place on Australia’s a last visit to the country early this year for four Test matches series.

The relation between Indian and Australian players had gone bad to worse then and Indian skipper had to say that he was no longer friends with the Aussies. Steven Smith though apologised for his actions at the end of the series, just a few days ahead of IPL 10.
Though Australian players did not sledge Indian players this time around but considering that mega auction is the reason behind it, this seems a bit vague and difficult to comprehend.
