Sehwag is unpredictable perfect! Next Test could have been 300! " tweeted Hayden, indicating that the 34-year-old opener could have hit a triple century in the next match.<br /> <br /> Hayden added that he was sorry to hear about Sehwag being dropped as the Delhi batsman is one of his favourites.<br /> <br /> "Very sorry to hear that Virender Sehwag has been dropped for next test. He is my top 4 entertaining batsman to watch of all time," added Hayden.<br /> <br /> The All-India Senior Selection Committee of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (<a href="/tags/BCCI/post" target="_blank">BCCI</a>) <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/cricket-articles/Virender-Sehwag-dropped-from-India-squad-for-remaining-Tests-against-Australia/23764" target="_blank">axed the 34-year-old </a>for his below-par performance in the first two Tests in Chennai and Hyderabad. Sehwag scored only 27 runs from three innings at an average of 9 in the first two Tests of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. His figures read 2, 19 and 6.<br /> <br /> Sehwag was also dropped from the one-day squad in January in the series against England which India won 3-2.<br /> <br /> The <a href="/tags/Delhi/post" target="_blank">Delhi</a> batsman has an impressive record in Tests having scored 8586 runs from 104 Tests at an average of 49.34. However, he has been going through a slump in form for some time now.<br /> <br /> He last scored a century in the first of the four Tests against England last November, where he made a swashbuckling 117. This was his first three figure score in two years as his last century before this came in November 2010 against New Zealand.<br /> <br /> India currently lead in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2-0. The third Test will be played at Mohali March 14-18 and the fourth at Delhi March 22-26.
