High drama was witnessed at a press conference addressed by Indian Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who faced a hostile media after news filtered in that his deputy Virender Sehwag will be out of the Twenty20 World Cup. Asked about Sehwag’s injury and why there was no update from the team management, he curtly said, “Whatever related to fitness, you will get it from the BCCI.

Asked why a captain should not provide the update, an irritated-looking Dhoni said, I’m not going to say anything on that.” On whether he was aware of Sehwag’s injury, Dhonis cryptic reply was “yes, I am.” His comment ignited the fuse in a jam-packed room as the media persons strained to hear from official sources whether Sehwag was really out of the tournament.
