New Delhi: Indian opener Virender Sehwag may have started the World Cup with a bang but his decision of wearing a jersey without any number has not gone down well with the International Cricket Council.
The ICC has issued the Indian batsman, who scored 175 runs in the tournament opener against Bangladesh on Saturday, a warning referring to its guidelines which state that a batsman must wear a numbered jersey on the field.
Sehwag, who used to wear number 44 on his jersey, gave up wearing a numbered jersey since his comeback into the Indian side.
Indian players, who have various superstitions, generally sport their lucky numbers or consult numerologists for a favourable jersey number. For e.g.: MS Dhoni (7) and Yuvraj Singh (12) have their birth dates on their jerseys. But Viru believes he plays better when he's playing without a numbered jersey.
