According to a report India Today’s website, the batsman has decided to focus only on two formats – One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and Test cricket.
A senior BCCI official was quoted by the website as saying, "He has informed the board that he doesn't want to play T20 Internationals anymore and would like to concentrate on the longer versions. He cited fitness and the rigours of T20 cricket as the reason behind his decision”
The official denied that being rested against England and dropped for Australia game in the recently-concluded World T20 was the reason for the batsman considering retirement from the shortest format.
He added,” "He (Sehwag) is experienced enough to realise the needs of the team and he isn't someone who would question the decision of the team management. Only a self-centred player would do that."
