Virender Sehwag turns to God in hope for miracle
Kolkata: India's defeat may look inevitable against the eleven English men when the final two batsmen make their way out in the Eden Gardens turf, but opener Virender Sehwag's optimism seems to have been tethered by the blows when he says that ‘only God can save’ the Test match for India.

The remark from Sehwag has come at the time when the English team is on top in the ongoing Test Match like the second Test match.

Blaming the Indian batsmen for the poor show in the series Sehwag said that "only god can save" India from an embarrassing defeat against England when India takes ground on Sunday.

"Wicket is not that bad for us to lose six wickets in a session. We are still fighting and hopefully something happens tomorrow so we can save the Test. Only god can help us," the destructive batsman said after India capitulated to 239/9 managing a slender lead of 32 runs.

India after doing well in the morning session lost six wickets for just 59 runs in the post lunch double hour.

"We are very disappointed. Patience was the key. We did not bat well at all. If you apply on this wicket it is not that difficult to bat. If we had scored 400- 500 runs our bowlers would have done well as they had a big score to defend.

"We lost the last two test matches because we did not bat well. It becomes real difficult for our bowlers if we give them a total of just 200-300 runs," said Sehwag.

He said the pitch was still good for batting and did not "turn square" and blamed the batsmen for their lack of patience and application.

"Our batsmen are not scoring runs, that is our biggest concern," he said.

"Yuvraj Singh has played 40 odd test matches and Virat Kohli has been playing well in international cricket for the last few years. The middle order is not that new. But we are playing test cricket after long time," he said.

He also praised Ravichandran Ashwin whose unbeaten 83 helped India avoid the ignominy of an innings defeat.

"He applied himself well and the wicket is still good to bat and he got runs," added Sehwag.

England would be coming out to take India's final wicket and seal the assailable lead of 2-1 in the four Test Match series.
