    Bradman to Sehwag - Redefining Great Batsmanship Through Defying Tradition

    Bradman to Sehwag - Redefining Great Batsmanship Through Defying Tradition

    Okay. Here it is.

    Its a two part feature on Virender Sehwag. The first part is up. The second will be up in two days.

    Lets have some feedback I can assure you this is a controversial feature

    Very good article, and thought provoking. There is an editing error where the second half of the article is all italicized, which makes reading a bit difficult. I'm sure it's just a missing </i> tag.

    Great article so far. Enjoyable reading as you're laying out your case. If I'm picking up where you're going correctly, the emergence of Hayden and Gilchrist at near the same juncture as Sehwag is not to be viewed as coincidence.

    He plays the ball on merit (the Sehwag definition of merit mind you) and plays it accordingly, hits it between fielders and so on.
    This part could maybe have been expanded on, it's perhaps the thing I love most about Sehwag's approach to batting.

    I had warned that there is going to be some controversial stuff here so I am not surprised. Look forward to the "complaints". Will try to answer.
