Sehwag will bounce back: Pawar

Beleaguered Virender Sehwag on Saturday received some much needed support from none other than the Board of Control for Cricket in India president Sharad Pawar who said the swashbuckling batsman would soon rediscover his touch and silence his critics much in the way of former captain Sourav Ganguly.

"This [losing form] is part and parcel of the game. One year back, people were talking the same about Sourav Ganguly. All that has stopped after he performed so well and now he has become an asset to the team," Pawar told reporters.

Sehwag has been struggling for runs the past few months and his rough patch continued in the World Cup matches when he was out for 28 and nought in the warm-up matches against the Netherlands and the West Indies.

The BCCI chief said the top order batsman is a match-winner and a vital cog in the team.

"Sometimes you perform and sometimes you don't. You don't have to think much about such players. He is a run-getter," the Union Agriculture Minister said in Bangalore.
