Virender Sehwag, the name that got fear into the bowlers’ mind when playing against him is on a series of failures. This made his franchise Delhi Daredevils not to retain him for the IPL. But in Twenty20’s, only five overs of Sehwag at his best will be enough for the batting side to get off to a flying start. He might be out of form, but his strike rate in T20’s show how good a player he is. When Sehwag is on song, bowlers feel the heat and run for covers with the fielders turning into spectators and the spectators into fielders. If Delhi fail to cash in the Joker Card for Sehwag, team like Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders will look to pounce at the Nawab of Najafgarh.
