India's dashing opener Virender Sehwag Thursday rubbished media reports of his retirement from the Twenty20 squad.

"Another baseless story being run! I have not requested to be rested for any match in any format of the game! Fingers crossed, raring to go!" tweeted Sehwag as he prepared to lead Delhi in the Ranji Trophy opener against Uttar Pradesh.

A daily reported that Sehwag has asked the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) not to include him in the Twenty20 side citing fitness.

"He has informed the board that he doesn't want to play T20 Internationals anymore and would like to concentrate on the longer versions. He cited fitness and the rigours of T20 cricket as the reason behind his decision," the daily reported.
