Virender Sehwag gives a wish list to Jaitley

Virender Sehwag is reported to have given a wish list to the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) president Arun Jaitley as regards the state selectors.

National selector Yashpal Sharma, former national selector Madan Lal and Hari Gidwani are the names suggested by Sehwag with the idea that these three were not likely to push in players of their choice at the expense of more promising ones.

Jaitley is said to be happy to go with this compromise formula, but a member of the present selection committee, who did not wish to be named, said working out the selection committee and other such matters was not the issue at all. "Sehwag had said he was against the running of the sports committee, which does not consist of prominent players and is said to influence selectors, but in all this, the main issue is lost."

Another former selector, made a controversial statement that had officials of the state association fuming. Kirti Azad told a news channel that call girls had been used to influence selection matters.

Meanwhile, Ishant Sharma returned to the fitness camp at Ferozshah Kotla on Monday. Other player Gautam Gambhir is expected to join the camp from Tuesday. Ishant along with left arm pacer Ashish Nehra, who returned to practice on Friday, and other players was training with Delhi coach Vijay Dahiya.
