So, I think he could have been given a chance in Mohali for the third Test," Gavsakar said today.<br /> <br /> Gavaskar is of the opinion that the out-of-form Sehwag would stage a comeback.<br /> <br /> "I don't think this is the end of the road for him. He has got a 100 at the start of the season against England, scored a couple of 50's. I think it's just the perception, the way he goes about his cricket. I don't think he is totally out of form," Gavaskar told 'NDTV'.<br /> <br /> Further defending Sehwag, the former great said the Delhi player was not "totally" out of form and was not throwing his wicket away.<br /> <br /> "I don't think he is totally out of form. He is getting out to terrific deliveries. He got out to a beauty in Hyderabad while in Chennai, the extra pace got the better of him."<br /> <br /> Asked if Sehwag could be slotted in the middle-order in future, Gavaskar said, "With his experience, he would be useful batting at number 5-6, especially in countering the second new ball."<br /> <br /> However, former Australia batsman, <a href="/tags/Dean-Jones/post" target="_blank">Dean Jones</a> felt it would be difficult for Sehwag to make a comeback.<br /> <br /> "It's going to be difficult for him to make a comeback. I am starting to worry for him now and, with the South Africa series coming up, it's not going to be easy."<br /> <br /> Sehwag had failed to fire in five consecutive Tests after getting a hundred in the opening game of the home series against England at Ahmedabad in November-December last year.<br /> <br /> He was unable to score even a half-century in two home Tests against New Zealand.<br /> <br /> During India's last overseas tour, in Australia, Sehwag scored just 198 runs in eight innings.
