"We've international class and the team has been boosted by the return of KP and Mahela. As a result of that, I can play freely. I know that they are there in the line-up," Sehwag said after leading his team to an eight-wicket win over Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League here on Tuesday.
Sehwag praised the bowlers, especially left-arm spinners Roelof van der Merwe and Shahbaz Nadeem. "Our bowlers did a fantastic job, started off really well upfront and the left-arm spinners took off from there," he said.
