About Virender Sehwag (from Wikipedia Page)

Virender Sehwag is a former Indian cricketer. Widely regarded as one of the most destructive batsmen of all time, Sehwag played as an aggressive right-handed opening batsman and also bowled part-time right-arm off-spin.

He played his first One Day International in 1999 and joined the Indian test side in 2001.

In April 2009, Sehwag became the first Indian to be honoured as the Wisden Leading Cricketer in the World for his performance in 2008, subsequently becoming the first player of any nationality to retain the award for 2009.

He is the former Occasional captain of India, former Vice-Captain of India, former captain of Delhi Daredevils and former captain of Delhi Ranji Team.

Sehwag was appointed as vice-captain of the Indian team under Rahul Dravid in October 2005 but due to poor form, he was later replaced by V. V. S. Laxman in December 2006 as Test vice-captain.

In January 2007, Sehwag was dropped from the ODI team and later from the Test team as well.

During his term as vice-captain, Sehwag skippered the team in place of injured Dravid in 2 ODIs and 1 Test.
