'Sehwag must be dropped if he fails in Test'

Former Indian pacer Chetan Sharma on Wednesday lambasted the Indian team for the "pathetic" show in the one-day series against South Africa and said Virender Sehwag should be dropped if he continued to flop in the upcoming Test series.

"When a player like Ganguly can be dropped on the ground of non-performance, why not Sehwag who has miserably failed in the one-day series," said Sharma, who holds the distinction of claiming a hat-trick in the World Cup.

Sharma, who was here in connection with a talent search contest organised by UK-based company 'Investors in Cricket', expressed his happiness at Sourav Ganguly returning to form in the warm-up game ahead of the Tests.

"Ganguly will strive to prove the selectors, who had decided to omit him from the squad, wrong. He has enough cricket left in him," Sharma said.

But he predicted that Ganguly's international career would be over if he failed to perform in the Test series.
