New Delhi , June (ANI): Indian opener Virender Sehwag today appealed to the youngsters to focus on their studies as well, particularly on spoken English as, he said it would help them in getting better jobs if they dont turn into good cricketers.
Sehwag in his initial days of international cricket faced a lot of difficulties in speaking English while he interacted with the anchor person after winning Man-of-the-Match award. But lately he practiced quite a bit and is now able to speak fluent English though making some grave grammatical mistakes here and there.

Replying to a question from a youngster as to how he could become a cricketer like him, Sehwag said, You must have a passion for the game and work hard. At the same time dont loose on your studies, particularly spoken English because it will help you in getting better jobs in case you dont turn into a good cricketer.
