Once Sehwag had a dispute with Australian fast bowler James Pattinson on the middle ground.
This incident is from the match played between India and Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in 2011. Sehwag started the Indian innings with his partner Gautam Gambhir. Sehwag was playing on 16 when Pattinson tried to block the batsman’s path while running. The bowler used his shoulder to stop Viru from taking a run in the seventh over of the innings.
Sehwag did not like Pattinson’s behavior at all. The Indian batsman got angry. Sehwag angrily raised the bat and threatened Pattinson. There was a lot of war of words between the two players.
