Untold Cricket Story Part 9 This incident was happened during the NatWest Trophy 2002. Coach Wright decided to confront Sehwag and tell him to stop playing silly shots and getting out. He actually stomped into the dressing room (after Sehwag has gotten himself out ridiculously), grabbed him by the collar. “He was upset with me because I played a stupid shot,” said Sehwag. Wright said he had a face to face with Sehwag at the team hotel. “Sehwag told me bluntly that he didn’t like what I’d done. I acknowledged that he was entitled to feel aggrieved, but added that I didn’t give a damn if he poured his heart out to every newspaper in India.”

“I was not even present when the incident took place. I later came to know of the incident from Harbhajan Singh in the team bus. So I was surprised by Mr. Shukla’s comments,” Ganguly.
