Virender Sehwag said that the opening combination of Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly had failed in the first two matches of the 2003 World Cup. When the team travelled to Zimbabwe for their third match, the then Indian head coach John Wright asked all 15 squad members to anonymously throw in a “chit”, stating their pick of opening batsmen going forward in the tournament. Two weeks before that incident, Wright and Tendulkar had a one-on-one discussion, out of which it was decided that Tendulkar would return to open the batting for India, rather than the No.4 position he was occupying since a year prior to the event.
