Chandigarh:

After being out of action for nearly four months due to a shoulder injury, India opener Virender Sehwag returned to the cricket field but failed to score at a J P Atray tournament match here on Sunday.

The Delhi batsman, who is playing for Mukesh Ambani's Reliance 1 team in the corporate tournament, was dismissed by the BPCL bowler Bhavin Thakur as Sehwag's side was chasing a 273-run target.

Sehwag was out of action since he sustained an injury during the Indian Premier League tournament held in South Africa in April-May and underwent a shoulder operation.

The dashing cricketer missed the World Twenty20 in England, the ODI series in the West Indies, the triangular series in Sri Lanka and will also miss the Champions Trophy, commencing in South Africa from September 22.

However, Sehwag has been signed up by Ambani's Reliance Industries for the J P Atray tournament, where he is playing under the leadership of India-discard Parthiv Patel.

Sehwag also has been named captain of the Rest of India squad in the five-day Irani Cup tie against Ranji Trophy champion Mumbai starting in Nagpur on October 1.
