    Great decision. Sehwag is a player who will inspire a generation of batsman at the top of the order to go after the bowling from ball 1. He has probably changed the game of cricket forever.

    Congrats

    Well done Sehwag, but disappointing he edged out Dougy. Dougeh.

    Disagree because you can show that someone else was a more influential cricketer in 2009. Not because "he's a flat track bully" or whatever.

    You didn't even disagree with it, you just regurgitated a lazy argument that has been offered up throughout CC in recent times to disparage Sehwag.

    It's a shame that certain people are using this unbelievable player - an middle order destroyer shunted up the order who then averaged 70 with a strike rate of 108 last year, a player with 3 run a ball scores of 290+ - to try to score points with their cheap, puerile, trolling drivel.

    Sehwag has probably done for test opening what Jayasuriya did for one-dayers.

    No way. They've been many attacking Opening Batsman that have come before Sehwag.

    Mine was a poorly made joke admittedly - Mostly a useless post. If Sean was only referring to me then fair enough, but its a forum so people are going to undoubtedly question the achievements of cricketers.

    Hayden was averaging almost 60 with a strike-rate in the mid 60's back in 2003/04.
