India worried over Sehwag fitness for quarterfinal

India worried over Sehwag fitness for quarterfinal

Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni says India has not yet decided whether hard-hitting opener Virender Sehwag will be playing in the World Cup quarterfinal against Australia.
Dhoni says Wednesday that the team management will "take a call this evening or tomorrow morning" on Sehwag's fitness. The opening batsman has been recuperating from an infection to his knee which kept him out of the last group match against West Indies.
Dhoni said he was hoping Sehwag will be fit because "he can change the course of the game in five overs."
Sehwag, who is India's leading run-scorer in the tournament with 327 from five games, has been training with the team ahead of the high-profile game.
