Virender Sehwag said ( about Eoin Morgan ) : "I don't think Eoin Morgan is the best T20 captain in the world. Yes, in ODI cricket, he has a really strong team. Whoever bats well wins the game for him. Whoever bowls well, wins the game for England. But in IPL - he does not have that team, and I also don't think he is that good a captain of T20 cricket. If you compare MS Dhoni with Eoin Morgan, it would not be a correct comparison. Also, he does not have that good a team which he has for England. Because a captain is as good as his team. When he builds a great team maybe next year, or if his players start performing extraordinarily. Even if two players start scoring runs, or two bowlers start picking wickets, then this will be a good team. And they will start winning matches. At this moment, I don't feel Eoin Morgan is that good a T20 captain," External link

Virender Sehwag told ( about Amit Mishra ) : "He is [Amit Mishra] a kind of guy who is very calm and talks gently to everybody. He gets to mingle with everyone pretty quickly. So that’s why he becomes the favourite of his teammates. When he gets beaten, other players feel for him. And when takes wickets, all are happy for him. I remember when he claimed his first hat-trick. I asked him what do you want and he said ‘Viru Bhai, please get my salary increased.’ Now, I feel, he would be getting that much amount of money that he won’t ask for a raise even after getting another hat-trick," External link

Virender Sehwag added ( about Rohit Sharma ) : “He bowled really well. That’s why he is one of the best bowlers of this tournament. He has the most wickets as a spinner. Had Rohit Sharma played his normal game against him, he could have scored 60-70 runs easily,” External link

Virender Sehwag said ( about Amit Mishra ) : “Amit Mishra knew that when Hardik Pandya plays spin, he simply attacks. If gets the ball in his area, he looks to smash it. If it’s his day, he whacks a maximum or else he will get out. So, Mishra is wise enough to judge if a batsman like Pandya goes after him, who will he bowl or what variation does he need to make. Mishra accepts challenges no matter who the batsman he is bowling at,” External link

Virender Sehwag said : “Eoin Morgan had given a statement that they will play that way (with positive intent) after the first game but it didn’t look like that when Andre Russell and Dinesh Karthik came in to bat. The way Russell and Karthik batted, it felt like they planned to take the game till the end and win it. But that didn’t happen. The batters who came before them be it Shakib Al Hasan, Eoin Morgan, Shubman Gill, or Nitish Rana all of them played with positive intent,” External link

Virender Sehwag told : “I’ve heard his name, even saw him bowl in domestic games but didn’t expect that he would bowl so well. You face different batters in the domestic circuit but in IPL, you come across big and renowned batsmen. We got to see his temperament. He was fearless,” External link

Virender Sehwag observed : “Zaheer Khan and Ashish Nehra always say that as a bowler, you should never be scared of getting hit for a boundary. Until you won’t get hit, you cannot learn and pick wickets. So, I think, he (Sakariya) exhibited that kind of temperament,” External link

However, Ashwin and (Varun) Chakravarthy, on the other hand, haven’t cleared the yo-yo Test, that’s why they aren’t here. But I won’t agree with all of this, if these criteria existed before, then the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Sourav Ganguly wouldn’t have passed it.

Kohli said that workload management is being done for all bowlers including Pandya. But it cannot be so that he does not bowl a single over. Fielding for 50 overs is also tiring, so if he bowls four-five overs in between, it would not increase the workload much. I don’t know who decides that Pandya’s workload has increased. Because since he has returned from surgery, he has not played much cricket,” “He missed the Tests. He has played 3 T20Is, in which he bowled four-six overs. The load of work has not even come on him yet since he has returned to fitness. If he was playing non-stop cricket across all formats, then I would have understood it.

Virender Sehwag said ( about Eoin Morgan ) : "I don't think Eoin Morgan is the best T20 captain in the world. Yes, in ODI cricket, he has a really strong team. Whoever bats well wins the game for him. Whoever bowls well, wins the game for England. But in IPL - he does not have that team, and I also don't think he is that good a captain of T20 cricket. If you compare MS Dhoni with Eoin Morgan, it would not be a correct comparison. Also, he does not have that good a team which he has for England. Because a captain is as good as his team. When he builds a great team maybe next year, or if his players start performing extraordinarily. Even if two players start scoring runs, or two bowlers start picking wickets, then this will be a good team. And they will start winning matches. At this moment, I don't feel Eoin Morgan is that good a T20 captain," External link

Virender Sehwag told ( about Amit Mishra ) : "He is [Amit Mishra] a kind of guy who is very calm and talks gently to everybody. He gets to mingle with everyone pretty quickly. So that’s why he becomes the favourite of his teammates. When he gets beaten, other players feel for him. And when takes wickets, all are happy for him. I remember when he claimed his first hat-trick. I asked him what do you want and he said ‘Viru Bhai, please get my salary increased.’ Now, I feel, he would be getting that much amount of money that he won’t ask for a raise even after getting another hat-trick," External link

Virender Sehwag added ( about Rohit Sharma ) : “He bowled really well. That’s why he is one of the best bowlers of this tournament. He has the most wickets as a spinner. Had Rohit Sharma played his normal game against him, he could have scored 60-70 runs easily,” External link

Virender Sehwag said ( about Amit Mishra ) : “Amit Mishra knew that when Hardik Pandya plays spin, he simply attacks. If gets the ball in his area, he looks to smash it. If it’s his day, he whacks a maximum or else he will get out. So, Mishra is wise enough to judge if a batsman like Pandya goes after him, who will he bowl or what variation does he need to make. Mishra accepts challenges no matter who the batsman he is bowling at,” External link
