Northampton, Aug 5: Virender Sehwag rarely turns a deaf ear to his team's pleas for a good opening to India's innings. He also has been known for responding promptly to his partner's calls for a quick single. But with reports indicating that he has suffered a partial loss in hearing, those tendencies of the dashing batsman might just be impaired!
Sehwag turned heads and raised eyebrows on Thursday when he showed up at the nets with cotton stuffed in his ears. But even though he had been diagnosed with 'sensorineural hearing loss', sources confirmed that the malady is only temporary and shouldn't impact his batting at all.
Apparently, Sehwag had been exposed to a loud noise at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bangalore where he was undergoing rehabilitation. Hopefully, the only high-decibel sounds he'll hear now are cheers from the crowd when he takes guard at Northampton today and Edgbaston, next week.
