Mostly a failure this Australian summer, dashing Indian opener Virender Sehwag will return to the team for Wednesday’s match against Sri Lanka after being ‘rested’ from the opening ODI and has vowed to be his usual attacking self in the ongoing tri-series here.

Sehwag was ‘rested’ from the opening ODI against Australia which India lost by 65 runs in Melbourne on Sunday.

“I tried to play a little differently in Perth because the ball was doing something. It didn’t work so I went back to my own style. I will do so in ODIs as there are only 50 overs and you want to give a good start to the team,” Sehwag, who smashed 219 runs in his last one-day innings against the West Indies in Indore last year, said.
