Controversies – It has been noticed that there is a sort of cold war between Virender Sehwag & M.S. Dhoni
– Sehwag bashed at the Sri Lankan bowler Randiv in 2010 match when Sehwag was batting on 99 and only 1 run was required to win the game, Randiv bowled a no ball of which Sehwag smashed a six but the six was not counted as the extra run ended the match, Sehwag was not knowing this rule so he celebrated his century but later he got to know that the six was not counted and Sehwag was left on 99*, Sehwag said that Randiv deliberately bowled that no ball as his foot was way outside the crease, he said that it is against the sporting spirit and such things should not happen.
