Sehwag denies sending two-line CV to BCCI

IANS  |  New Delhi 

Former Indian opener has denied reports that he sent a two-line curriculum vitae (CV) to the Board of Control for Cricket in (BCCI) for the position of Indian team coach.

"I would be happy to get that two line CV from the media source. If I had to send a 2 line resume, my name was enough," told UCWeb We-Media in his trademark witty style.

The former hard-hitting batsman insisted that he sent a two-page resume in compliance with rules.

A official had said a few days ago that had sent in a two-line application for the job of coach before he was persuaded to submit a full resume by the Indian cricket board.

His application reportedly said that he is a "mentor and a coach of Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League and has played with all these (Indian) boys before".

also asserted that will defeat arch-rivals Pakistan in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy on Sunday.

Recalling his playing days, said he enjoyed dominating the Pakistan bowlers, specially former fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar.

"Pakistan was that one team against which I always loved hitting boundaries, especially against Shoaib Akhtar who used to bowl at 150 km/h," the 38-year-old said.

had enraged former Pakistan wicket-keeper

Rashid Latif when he belittled the men in green in a congratulatory message for the Indian team on Twitter.

This prompted Latif to issue a rant in a 15-minute video against and the Indian team.

however, declined to comment on the issue.

"This eventually portrays Rashid Latif's character. I haven't seen that video and neither do I want to. Whatever I had said was in good spirit and it should have been taken with a pinch of salt," he said.

When asked to compare between former captain Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar, said, "Sourav taught me how to keep patience and is my all-time favourite captain."

"On the other hand, Sachin gave me confidence, broke my superstitions and playing with him was like playing with the wall, you could play without any tension and hit boundaries freely."
