'England series is not about revenge'

New Delhi, Nov 6: India opener Virender Sehwag has dismissed thoughts of revenge over England in the four-match Test series which gets under way in Ahmedabad on November 15.

India, when they travelled to England in 2011, were humiliated 4-0. But now they have a chance to exact revenge at home. But Sehwag says he and the team are not thinking of revenge and vengeance. The Delhi batsman is focused on playing good cricket and wants to win the series.

"Our aim is to play well and win the series. England are a good side but so are we. I think it will be a tough series for both of us. We are not here for revenge. All this vengeance etc. is all due to media hype. We are concentrating on playing well and winning for the team and country," Sehwag was quoted as saying in the media on Tuesday.

Sehwag, who returned to form with a fine century for Delhi against Uttar Pradesh in Ranji Trophy on Monday, said he was happy to score that ton.

"I am happy to score the century. Whether I am back in form or not, is not for me to decide but I thought I played well enough," he said.

While playing that game, Sehwag injured his finger and he said it was getting better as he prepares for the first Test on November 15.

"And as for the condition of my finger, it is getting better."
