Chennai: Sehwag, who carried India's fight to win the first Test, said the home team was still in contention to win the match with 256 runs more to get on Monday.
Talking to newspersons here , Viru, who hit a blistering 83 when India began their chase of 387 runs in the second innings, said,''we are in good position to win. We will go for it tomorrow.'' Indirectly criticising the leg before decision against him, Sehwag, who enjoyed two chances during his knock in which he tore into the English seam attack, said the wicket was still good for batting.
''If you settle down, you can get the runs required. The wicket is still good,'' he added.
Sehwag, answering a question about his own characteristic way of batting said the bowlers were giving him width to cut.
''I was playing my normal game. But I was a bit lucky. I was dropped twice,'' he added.
Sehwag also observed that the wicket was still a bit dificult.
