Sehwag, a member of the 2011 World Cup-winning team, said Kohli and captain Rohit Sharma deserve to win the upcoming tournament. Rohit missed out on being a part of the 2011 World Cup-winning team and is now captain of the team when the tournament returns to home soil. Sehwag said, ‘These two (Rohit and Kohli) senior players deserve to win the World Cup. Rohit Sharma was very close to being selected for the 2011 World Cup but missed out. He later became the king of ODI, he deserves to win the World Cup trophy once because he is a brilliant player.
