It was a revenge game: Sehwag

At the post-match conference last night, when questioned whether it was a revenge game, the Man of the Match who scored 175 runs gave a curt reply, "I think so." A scribe asked whether he was under any pressure to perform, and in his characteristic style Sehwag replied, "No pressure for me as I only bother about playing and scoring runs."
Sehwag said his 140-ball 175 was a blend of caution and aggression.

"When we started, we got 10 runs per over for the first 3-4 overs but then we decided that we had to be careful or else we might lose a few wickets." Sehwag however did praise the Bangladeshi team for its fighting spirit.

"They have the ability to disappoint any big side. They are a good side and have the ability to do well against the top sides," he said. The Indian opener also praised his junior state-mate Virat Kohli for scoring an 83-ball 100. "He really played well. He has matured," Sehwag said.

Sehwag maintained that it would have been easy to chase 300-320 on this track and the team management wanted to field first if skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss. "We were also looking to field first. Chasing 300-320 would have been fine as it is easy to chase."
