Sehwag likely to sit out for tri-series, Champions Trophy

Virender Sehwag's injured right shoulder will be the main topic of discussion as the selectors prepare to pick 15-member squad for Champions Trophy and the preceding tri-series in Sri Lanka. Sehwag might not be fit to bat before September 17 and despite the temptation to include a proven match-winner, it does seem likely that Krishnamachari Srikkanth and company will keep Viru out of the squad. The selectors, it is understood, want the same squad for both the Sri Lanka tri-series and the Champions Trophy to ensure that the players, who have been out of cricket for two months now, get back into the groove before the premier tournament in South Africa. The Lanka series and the Corporate Cup in India before that are perfect launch pads for the Champions Trophy and Sehwag won't be able to play in any of these tournaments.
