Sehwag wishes good luck to Indian hockey team

New Delhi:

Recuperating from a sore back, Virender Sehwag has been spending the time away from cricket to root for the Indian hockey team in the World Cup and the dashing opener on Wednesday wished good luck to Rajpal Singh and his men for a successful campaign.

The Indian hockey team started with a bang, winning 4-1 against arch-rivals Pakistan on Sunday but succumbed to a 2-5 loss against Australia in their second match on Tuesday.

"I have watched all the matches of the Indian team and I wish them all the best for the rest of their campaign in the World Cup," Sehwag said on the sidelines of an event to promote luxury spa in the capital here.

Sehwag said he will travel to Bangalore for treatment on Wednesday.

"I hope to get well soon. I am going to Bangalore today for treatment and will stay there for some days. I am looking forward to the forthcoming tournaments and hope to give my best," he said.

"I always give my best and I will look to do the same in the coming tournaments and be successful in all the three formats of the game.

"If I am successful I would be happy but even if I fail, I will know deep inside heart that I have given my 100 per cent," he said.

Clad in jeans and t-shirt, Sehwag, who recently underwent hair transplantation, said he was very happy with the treatment as it made him look younger and hoped that more companies will approach him now for endorsements.
