Nothing bizarre about Sehwag's dismissal in 90s: Ryder

Hyderabad:

Virender Sehwag has a penchant for throwing away his wicket after entering the nervous nineties but New Zealand batsman Jesse Ryder said that's the way the dashing India opener plays and one should not find it 'bizarre'.

Sehwag on Saturday got out after scoring a typically aggressive 96 and never allowed the New Zealand bowlers to settle into any sort of rhythm during his stay at the crease, on day two of the second Test at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium here.

"That's the way he plays. He played like that during the entire innings, so there is nothing bizarre about that," Ryder said when asked about Sehwag's dismissal in the nineties.

Ryder saw off an inspired spell of fast bowling from Zaheer Khan in the morning session to guide New Zealand to a respectable position but the burly middle-order batsman felt that his team was 100 runs short of what they were looking for.

"We were probably 100 runs short but India came out and bowled pretty well and we lost three quick wickets," he said. He felt the two wickets, of Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir, late in the day would help the Kiwis.

"Those wickets will definitely help us but we were lucky enough to get Sehwag out," Ryder said.
