"I have earned enough money and fame from the game to only think about financial aspects. I am not at all tensed about the auction or the price at which I will be bought. For me, what is important is to play cricket and IPL gives me a chance to do so," Sehwag told PTI during an interaction at his residential academic institution 'Sehwag International School'(SIS). (514 players to go under the hammer)

On whether he still enjoys the game, pat came the reply, "Of course, I am enjoying playing cricket. That's the reason that I have played a full season of Ranji Trophy cricket. I can tell you that after playing international cricket for so many years, it is very very difficult to come back and grind it out in domestic arena if you don't have love for the game."
