Out of favour batsman Virender Sehwag says that he wants to play for Team India once again and feels that he is doing the right preparations in order for him to achieve that objective.

Despite not being retained by the Delhi Daredevils for the seventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Sehwag is upbeat about his chances of playing for Delhi and opening the batting with Gautam Gambhir, reported NDTV.

“This IPL 7 auction presents a good opportunity to franchises to buy exciting talent like Jacques Kallis and Yuvraj Singh and I hope the Delhi Daredevils team buys me once again,” said Sehwag.

“I have had a long Test partnership with Gauti [Gambhir] and the fact that he is also from Delhi also helps our wonderful association. We have handled pressure situations well together and I hope to open with him for India again,” added Sehwag on him and Gambhir making a comeback to Team India.

“Everybody wants to get into the Indian team and young players like Shikhar are doing really well but I am trying my best to get back into the team, which is what I can do from my side,” said Sehwag on the newer crop of players like Shikhar Dhawan.

Sehwag  who had a poor domestic season, where he displayed none of his famous hand-eye co-ordination, also admitted that he still misses slamming the ball out of the park while playing for India and hopes to relive those moments once again.
