"It is better all players are tried in the early part of the triangular series. Then in the last matches you can play your full strength, play all your top players. I think it's a good strategy. But sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't," he said.
Sehwag said that he was not surprised that out-of-form Ricky Ponting being dropped from the Australian side.
"We were expecting as a team just sack him for the Test series. They have sacked him a little later. It's for everyone. If you don't perform 6-7 games, you get ready for sack, I am not surprised," he said.
"He (Ponting) has to decide (on retirement). I am no one to decide or comment on that. He knows better than anyone else."
