Haynes is a Sehwag fan

“I’m a Sehwag fan. If he is batting anywhere I make sure to watch him,” Haynes said.
Haynes also issued some word of advice to Sehwag, who according to him “has the ability to take any bowler to the park”.

“Sehwag should now realise that every one will bowl very close to his body and hence he should practice to play more shots off his body,” the West Indian, who is here to conduct a coaching clinic, told Gulf News.

Haynes also praised Yuvraj Singh and said he was happy to see the left-hander’s return to the Indian Test side. “Another exciting player for me is Yuvraj Singh and I’m glad he is being given the opportunity again to play Test series against Sri Lanka,” he said.

Haynes, who reckons Sunil Gavaskar as the “best opener the world has ever seen”, said among the bowlers he faced Kiwi legend Richard Hadlee was the most fearsome.
