Jhajhar (Haryana): Feb 11, 2014 

 

All eyes will be on Virender Sehwag when the veteran star goes under the hammer for the India seven auctions tomorrow but the out-of-favour opener is not at all bothered about what kind of price he will command from the franchises.

 

Is he tensed about the auction? Sehwag answered in the manner he bats.

 

“You mean tensed about how much money I will get,” he said with a wry smile.

 

“I have earned enough money and fame from the game to only think about financial aspects. I am not at all tensed about the auction or the price at which I will be bought. For me, what is important is to play cricket and Indian Premier League(IPL)gives me a chance to do so,” Sehwag said during an interaction at his residential academic institution ‘Sehwag International School’(SIS).

 

On whether he still enjoys the game, pat came the reply, “Of course, I am enjoying playing cricket. That’s the reason that I have played a full season of Ranji Trophy cricket. I can tell you that after playing international cricket for so many years, it is very very difficult to come back and grind it out in domestic arena if you don’t have love for the game.”

 

The ‘Nawab of Najafgarh’ then cited an example of how he played in the DY Patil T20 tournament just to keep himself match fit.

 

“I went to Mumbai to play in the DY Patil T20 for a team.

 

We lost in the quarter-finals or else I might have got to play an additional couple of matches (semi-final and final). Now why did I got there to play? Because I love the game and the hunger is still there.”
