Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag has come up with rather a useful a suggestion for Team India. The attacking opener reckons that adding players like Suresh Raina and Yuvraj Singh in middle order will not only reinforce the batting order but also will make them unbeatable.
Sehwag supported the selection of his former teammates while speaking to AajTak and the news was revealed on Twitter.

There has been a lot of scrutinies over the inclusion of the senior players before the ongoing Sri Lanka tour. While MS Dhoni made it to the ODI squad successfully, both Yuvraj and Raina saw their names out of the team.
However, chief selector MSK Prasad revealed that Yuvraj Singh has been rested for the ODI series and not dropped. But it also needs to be mentioned that Yuvraj Singh has not been going through the best of forms right now, even he hasn’t been having the best time in the outfield as well.
As far as Suresh Raina is concerned, who has been known as the limited over specialist, hasn’t played an ODI since 2015. Raina lost his place in the team and have been working day-inn day-out since then. Despite giving more than just satisfying performance in the iconic 10th edition of IPL, Raina was not included in the ODI squad which left him emotional.
Considering the failure of Kedar Jadhav and Lokesh Rahul in the 2nd and the 3rd ODI, Virender Sehwag’s suggestion seems to be legit.
