Mera number kab ayega, asks Sehwag

By John Cheeran
The wait continues for Virender Sehwag.
Selectors have ignored the former India opener while announcing the team for the last two one-dayers against the West Indies to be played in Chennai and Baroda.
As expected, the middle-order bat Yuvraj Singh and veteran leg-spinner Anil Kumble are back in the side.
There is good news for Irfan Pathan too. Pathan is back in the side and might make the XI in Baroda.
Selectors have left out RP Singh and Joginder Sharma. These two are now effectively out of the World Cup race.
Dilip Vengsarkar made it clear that Gautam Gambhir, Robin Uthappa and Suresh Raina will play the next ODI at Chennai on January 27.
With selectors prepared to give early knocks to Uthappa and Raina, and at home conditions these batsmen are sure to make some runs, Sehwag's World Cup ticket is likely to be torn to pieces.
Squad for the last two one-dayers against the West Indies
Rahul Dravid (captain), Sachin Tendulkar (vice-captain), Robin Uthappa, Sourav Ganguly, Yuvraj Singh, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk), Dinesh Karthik, Suresh Raina, Gautam Gambhir, Zaheer Khan, Sreesanth, Ajit Agarkar, Anil Kumble, Ramesh Powar, Harbhajan Singh
