Is India Missing Virendra Sehwag at ICC T20 World Cup 2009 England

India, the defending champions lost their previous game yesterday very cheaply. The only thing that entertained the Indian fans is the partnership between Yuvraj and Y Pathan. what are the reasons behind India's failure, Is it the absence of sehwag that is effecting India, or some thing else.

I certainly feel that there is no fire power displayed in the opening 6 overs by the Indians in the previous 3 matches. Rohit Sharma replacing Sehwag did well in the past few games, but one thing that is very here is that the scoring rate is not high as expected in the opening 6 overs. Shewag's absence is really effecting the run rate in the opening 6 overs. India is consistent with its middle order firing in the last 5 overs but they need to produce some good runs in their opening 6 to really get into the winning stream.

There are few faults in the bowling and fielding department as well. India displayed some sloppy fielding in the previous game against WI, although there are no drop catches there were few runs left at the crucial stage of the match. So India should look at all these things to back them up into the game in their next encounter against England.
