Wellington, Mar 7 (ANI): New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori has said that his bowlers are fearful of Indian opener Virender Sehwag, because he regularly throws their bowling plans haywire with a swing of his bat.
Vettori said Sehwag forced him to deviate from his plans, adding that the Delhi batsman is a great player and very destructive batsmen.
"I wouldn't say bowlers feel intimidated, but they are fearful of what is going to come. We are never sure what he is going to do; he is that good a player that he can hit all around the park. I suppose the bowlers run in and maybe for a second or two guess what is going to happen," Stuff.co.nz quoted Vettori, as saying.
He said the Kiwi bowlers will have to concentrate on bowling in the right areas in next match and stop worrying about getting hit by Sehwag.
"I reckon we have got to tell ourselves that we have got to bowl in our area, and if we get hit from there we can live with that," he said.
Vettori said New Zealand could rein in West Indian swashbuckler Chris Gayle for once, but Sehwag was turning out to be a different kind of nemesis altogether.
"Sehwag has got so many quality players around him, that it gives him the license to play the way he plays. We have seen him hit the ball to a lot of areas," he added. (ANI)
