West Indian batsman Kieron Pollard has cautioned Australia against Indian opener Virender Sehwag ahead of the Test series.
Pollard recollected Sehwag’s brutal record-breaking innings of 219 runs against West Indies in the fourth One-Day International (ODI) in the recently-concluded series. He was quoted in Herald Sun as saying, "I haven't seen anything like it before," Pollard.
"He is a great, great batsman and words can't describe how magnificent his knock was that day.
"What a 50th game it was for me on the field watching Sehwag demolish our bowlers to all parts of the ground.
"It was entertaining as well being there looking back at it."
Pollard feels though India has a star-studded middle-order batting line-up, Australia will have to get rid of Sehwag early to prevent a big total by visitors.
He said, "Each and every one is formidable but unique," said Pollard, who conceded 1/65 amidst Sehwag's fireworks at Indore.
"Sehwag is a quality batsman, Australia will have their own battles with these guys, have to find out what to do to get them out."
