MS Dhoni has a big headache in handling senior opener Virender Sehwag s attitude ahead of India s key ICC World T20 clash against arch-rivals Pakistan and to make matters worse for the India skipper, one of his ‘trusted’ aides seems to have shot off his mouth at the worst possible moment.

Suresh Raina was quoted by Times of India as saying: “I think Sehwag can be very dangerous. I hope he’ll play the next two games. It won’t be easy to play the next two games without him.”

On the eve of the high-voltage match against arch rivals Pakistan, Sehwag was again seen skipping the entire net session although he did participate in a football game.

While skipper Dhoni and Virat Kohli also did not bat during the hour and half net session, it was inexplicable to watch Sehwag relax and enjoy a chit-chat with other team members when serious questions are being raised about his form and commitment in the shortest format.
