However, a leading channel ran a report saying this was Sehwag's view on the Kohli-Kumble fight.

Sehwag responded saying: How do u have fuel to spin things out of context.If u have any integrity telecast an apology on same channel &do a show on how u mislead ppl

Virender Sehwag is among the contenders for the next India coach, and he will be interviewed by the CAC for the same.
