Sehwag miss WI tour Because of injured

Virender Sehwag's IPL IV season has come to a premature end with the swashbuckling Indian opener deciding to rush to London at the earliest to undergo surgery on his right shoulder, a long-standing injury along his shoulder blade. “Sehwag has been ruled out of the remainder of this season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) due to an injury to his right shoulder,” the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said in a statement on Monday.

The surgery is to be conducted later this week and it will take six-to-seven weeks for him to recover before he can even think of getting back to training.

That means the Delhi Daredevils skipper is certain to miss the five-match ODI series, which is preceded by the only Twenty20 International in Port of Spain on June 4. India play West Indies in the first game of the three-Test series at Kingston on June 20.

It will not be the first time that Sehwag will have to sit out of an international tour because of the shoulder injury. Sehwag missed the previous two editions of the World T20, in England and West Indies respectively, because of a similar injury.

He had travelled with the team to England for the Twenty20 World Cup but the recurrence of the shoulder injury meant he had to consult surgeon Andrew Wallace, who Sachin Tendulkar saw for his tennis elbow. The right shoulder injury also ruled out Sehwag from the five-match ODI series in South Africa earlier in the year.
