England 'wary of Virender Sehwag'
Cricket fans with Test match tickets might be looking forward to seeing Indian batsman Virender Sehwag, whose potential to cause problems for England has been recognised by the home side.
Sehwag has been brought into the visitors' squad following an injury to Yuvraj Singh.
The batsman, who only recently returned following shoulder surgery, is known for his dynamic and aggressive style.
Commenting on Sehwag's introduction to the series, England captain Andrew Strauss said: "I've got no idea what his preparation has been like. But we know the quality of the player - that speaks for itself."
He added: "They have got a lot of good batsmen in their ranks, but we back our bowling attack against anyone, especially in these sorts of conditions."
Sehwag failed to make any runs in India's first innings of the third Test at Edgbaston this morning (August 10th), but will be hoping to play a bigger part in the second innings and at the Oval.
A win or a draw for England in Birmingham will clinch the series and confirm their position as the world's number one Test match side.
