The destructive batsman and the current wittiest person on Twitter are once again in the news and this time, it is not because he trolled someone or made fun of anyone.
Sehwag said that Shastri had told him that he would not be applying for the Team India head coach's position.
Taking a fresh dig at the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI), former Indian opener Virendra Sehwag, on Saturday, claimed that he was not picked as the chief coach of the Men in Blue because he lacked patronage from the powers that be in the governing body of Indian cricket. Again, I am not thinking about that. Shastri told me that he will not repeat the mistake which he had made once.

They agreed to continue their discussions when they meet in NY for the U.N. Moon and Trump agreed it was important to thoroughly implement U.N.
"Sehwag did not get the job because Sachin Tendulkar asked Shastri to apply for the post. So it is totally understandable that no Indian player is playing in that game and anybody other than the top 20 players that we have, I don't think would actually fit into a World XI", he said. The 38-year-old also added that Kumble would had been the most "capable coach" for the Indian team. "I took my time and then applied for the position", Sehwag was reported as saying during a talk show on IndiaTV, as reported by PTI.
Earlier, former Pakistani skipper, Shahid Afridi said he would have preferred if Indian cricketers like Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni were also a part of the extravaganza. Like I am saying for the Pakistan Super League are India commentators asked to come or Indian umpires come and asked to officiate. "When I was in England during Champions Trophy, I asked Ravi Shastri why he hasn't applied for the post. If you asked me if I had interest in coaching, I did not have any". "I think Virat can surpass Tendulkar's records", Sehwag told India TV. "I never thought of applying on my own nor will I ever apply in future", Sehwag replied. Sehwag lost out to Ravi Shastri, who was touted as the choice of skipper Virat Kohli - an appointment that was not unanimous with former India captain Sourav Ganguly, a member of the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC), strongly against the decision. [Look I couldn't become the India coach because I didn't have any setting (common slang for hobnobbing with decision-makers) with those who were in power of appointing the coach].
He already has 47 global centuries and close to 20000 runs to his name at the highest level of the game and with the peak years of a sportsperson still ahead of him, Sehwag believes that the best is yet to come from Kohli. Sehwag said that if he knew Shastri was going to go ahead and tender his application in any way, he would not have tried for the position in the first place.
