Wellington, Mar.12 (ANI): The Black Caps bowlers don't see anything remotely funny about facing Virender Sehwag, but the media do, reports the Waikato Times.
The Delhi destroyer provided nearly as much entertainment after last night's match as he did in his scintillating innings.
The soft spoken Sehwag opened his press conference in contrasting style to his batting.
Asked if he felt it was his best one-day innings, he prodded back with a non-committal "maybe", but pronounced himself particularly happy with his hook and pull shots that rocketed off the bat.
But, as befitting his approach, he was quickly into his stride.
Q: Do you have a psychological hold over New Zealand bowlers?
A: Yes they're worried about our opening partnership.
Sehwag described his team as "very young and talented side we can chase anything, we believe in ourselves."
Q: Do you feel sorry for the New Zealand bowlers?
A: Yes. Probably not as sorry as they're feeling, though.
Q: Will you bat like that in the tests?
A: I'll try.
That response will do wonders for ticket sales but only cause further harm for the tickers of our pace men. (ANI)
