"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," Sehwag 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 BCCI rules.
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".
Recalling his playing days, Sehwag 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.
Sehwag 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 Sehwag and the Indian team.
Sehwag 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.
"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."
