The non-inclusion of Virender Sehwag in the team for Asia Cup took a curious turn today with a media report claiming that the opener had asked the BCCI for rest because of back spasms.

"I have back spasms. I need some rest. I have never kept my team management in the dark as far as fitness is concerned. My injury is open for everyone to see," Sehwag was quoted as saying.

However, this flies in the face of what the chief selector Krishnamachari Srikkanth said yesterday. He told a TV channel last night that Sehwag had a shoulder injury, while the batsman claims to be troubled by "back spasms".
