Virender Sehwag will attend in the forthcoming ICC Champions Trophy 2009, I think the news will brought more pleasure among the Indians because the Twenty20 champions’ exile from the world cup 2009 was totally painful for the large number of Cricket fans especially India. Absence of Indian cricket team is totally lifeless, even brought slowdown business area. To tell truth that Indian bad performance in the recent T20 Champ caused for the nonattendance of Virender Sehwag.

Timesofindia reported:

"But I can't throw or bowl yet," he said. As a first step towards a recall into the Indian team, Sehwag, who has played in 69 Tests and 205 ODIs in which he has amassed a combined 12,000-plus runs, at a fabulous strike rate of close to 90, is to visit the NCA in Bangalore on August 15.

"I am set to go to Bangalore (NCA) on August 15 (for assessment of his progress from injury), said the ace batsman who has 26 hundreds to his credit in Tests and ODIs combined.

No doubt that Virender Sehwag is one of the key players of the Indian team. His return will boost the batting side and also the mental support too.
