Sehwag, Manjrekar vow to include Williamson in SRH's playing XI

New Zealand star batsman Williamson is considered as one of the best batsman in recent international cricket. But he hasn’t got chance in the team till now as SRH went for Mohammad Nabi in the first match and then Jason Holder in the second match. The other three overseas players were- captain David Warner, Jonny Bairstow and Rashid Khan.

SRH were in full control against RCB last night as Warner (54) and Manish Pandey (38) made a great 83-run partnership in the chase of 150 runs. But suddenly they collapsed and restricted to 143/9 in 20 overs which saw them losing the match by 6 runs.

That’s why Sehwag and Manjrekar twitted after the match for the inclusion of Williamson to stable the middle-order. Sehwag went for untraditional way posting a song’s lyrics with Williamson’s photo and Manjrekar twitted in direct way to address the matter.

“Kiska hai yeh tumko intezaar, Main hoon Na,” Sehwag tweeted.

“This view is not after tonight’s result but I have always maintained this SRH team needs Kane Williamson in their playing XI no matter what,” tweeted Manjrekar.
