Sehwag Eyeing Comeback in T20 Champions League


New Delhi, Sep 5: Virender Sehwag, who is nursing a shoulder injury, is looking to return to international field with the Twenty20 Champions League next month.

Sehwag, who has been out of the team since returning home midway through the Twenty20 World Cup in England in June, will be missing the tri-series in Sri Lanka as well as the Champions Trophy in South Africa.

"I am working hard on my shoulder and hoping that I will be fit before the Champions League T20," Sehwag said.

"My rehabiliation is going really well. I am pushing myself hard. After first week of September, I will start batting properly in the nets. Normally I am throwing 20 or 50 balls a day but from second or third week of September I will start throwing more and try to play the local tournament if I get a chance," Sehwag told CNN-IBN.

Sehwag, who kicked up a row after highlighting the nepotism in selection matters of Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA), said he was happy with the outcome of the meeting with DCCA president Arun Jaitley.

"We had a positive meeting with Arun Jaitley and other members of the DDCA. Even Mr. M.K. Pataudi joined the meeting at my request and I am thankful to him."

Sehwag said that he was not targeting anyone in DDCA, but was only opposed to the system.

"My fight is against the system. You have to change the system and put some good people who can look after cricket."
