“I am a Sehwag fan" says Haynes

Former West Indies opener Desmond Haynes concedes that he is a big fan of Virender Sehwag and says he hardly misses an occasion to watch the dashing Indian right-hander in action.

"I am a Sehwag fan. If he is batting anywhere I make sure to watch him," Haynes said.

Desmond Haynes also issued some word of guidance to Sehwag, who according to him "has the ability to take any bowler to the park".

"Sehwag should now realise that every one will bowl very close to his body and hence he should practice to play more shots off his body," says Haynes, who is in Dubai to do a coaching clinic, told Gulf News.

Haynes, also praised Yuvraj Singh and said he was happy to see Yuvraj return to the Indian Test team.

"Another exciting player for me is Yuvraj Singh and I am glad he is being given the chance again to play Test series against Sri Lanka," he said.

Haynes, who reckons Sunil Gavaskar as the "best opener the world has ever seen", said among the bowlers he faced New Zealand legend Richard Hadlee was the most fearsome.

"There are guys who could bowl at 100 miles an hour but they don't make you play every delivery. Hadlee is one who is always at you all the time and makes you defend your wicket all the time," he said.
