Capital Politics - will Sehwag rise again?

Virender Sehwag at Adelaide OvalTeam-Man SehwagRead the great article by Prem Panicker on the match-fixing and his discussion with a cricketer-friend. In this article, Prem has mentioned about the fiasco that happened last year between the Delhi players and the Board but there is more to it. 

Aakash Chopra, the erstwhile Indian opener, has moved on to Rajasthan cricket team this year and in fact, played for them in the recent Buchi Babu tournament in Chennai. 

As was the case last year, Aakash (on twitter)  seems to be once again upset –  Some things don't change...sadly!!!  –  with the situation.

The BCCI could have stepped in and restored order to the situation but has, as is their wont, remained silent. Again, to quote Aakash - Well...they r the parent body and can do everything...only if they want to!!!

The incident has not gained much publicity nation-wide this year.

Is it because Sehwag and Gambhir have not taken up the swords to cross with Mr. Jaitley? It might be partially the reason but very soon, knowing the person that Sehwag is, the war will be out in the open.  

Aakash, meanwhile, is not so confident  - Trust me...nothing will change even then!!!

Will the team-man Sehwag rise again?
