Hard-hitting opener Virender Sehwag, whose services are crucial to India's fate in the third cricket Test here, will come out to bat on Wednesday after being given the go-ahead by the doctors.

Back spasm forced Sehwag out of the ground for virtually the entire day on Tuesday as well as major part of the England's second innings on Monday.

"He was suffering from back spasm but now he has been cleared by the doctors to bat tomorrow," BCCI Media Committee member Milind Rege said.

Under the rules, Sehwag will come out to bat only after India lose five wickets on Tuesday.

The hosts have been set a daunting task of scoring 313 runs for a win in the third and final Test against England.

India had clipped 18 runs off the target while losing one wicket at close on day four.
