Delhi, India -- In all, 17 wickets fell on day two of the first Test at the Feroze Shah Kotla, but Virender Sehwag put things in perspective when he said the pitch had no role to play in the rash of dismissals.
“A lot of them were called soft dismissals -- like Gautam’s run out, like my getting out,” the Indian opener said on Monday. “It’s not as if the wicket is bad. It’s a good wicket to bat on, maybe keeping a bit low. But nobody got out because of the wicket.”
