The speculation has ended with the selectors dropping opener Virender Sehwag from the Indian team for the next two Tests.
As soon as the news broke, the response through his Twitter account came that he is in no mood to call it quits in the format he has enjoyed astonishing success at the top of the order.
There can only be one winner of Cricket World's Player Of The Week award on the week that Virender Sehwag broke the record for the highest individual score in a One-Day International.
He hit 219 from 149 balls during his epic knock against the West Indies in the fourth match between the two sides in Indore on Thursday and, if he hadn't been dismissed by Kieron Pollard in the 47th over, may well have taken the record into the territory of those deemed to be unbeatable.
Indian batsman Virender Sehwag has been named the Cricket World Player Of The Week after his blistering innings of 175 on the opening day of the Cricket World Cup 2011.
He scored his runs from 140 balls to set up an 87-run victory over Bangladesh as the tournament got underway in exciting style in Dhaka.
Indian Premier League franchise the Delhi Daredevils have confirmed that Virender Sehwag will captain the side in the fourth season of the competition.
Hard-hitting opening batsman Sehwag was the only player the Daredevils chose to retain ahead of the player auction, in which they picked up high-profile players including Irfan Pathan and Morne Morkel, as well as re-signing David Warner.
