    Missed my point, and I wasn't just referring to you. I said I don't mind people disagreeing, it just annoys me that it invariably ends with players being denigrated rather than celebrated. My comment was a bit preachy and soap-boxy though, I'll admit.

    Hayden's S/R is what you'd call good, positive cricket. Sehwag's is bordering on maniacal, yet successful.

    Well done Viru. The man's man, especially in that ad with Gambhir.

    "The great thing about Matthew Hayden was that he redefined what an opening batsman was. He changed the face of Test-match batting for ever. His real legacy will be changing the way cricket was played. He always tried to dominate and went after the opening bowlers in the first session." - Steve Waugh

    Its haydo's retirement ceremony. So Waugh got a little overboard there.

    Changed the way of opening batting??

    I wonder what slater did during the 90's? Isn't he the guy that started attacking brand of cricket that AUS under taylor are famous for, which later followed successfully.

    Waugh didn't get a little overboard, he always believed in Hayden and believed that he could be one of the best.

    Slater was moreso a positive player then anything else, who played his shots rather then bludgening the ball. Had he never experienced health problems in the late 90s / early 00s then Slater could've quite possibly gone on to become one of the best batsman of alltime.

    Sigh. Is this discussion really necessary in a thread about Sehwag?

    He said Langer is the best batsman in the world too, in 2000. As a captain he believed in all his players.

    Congrats to Sehwag. As for the mini-discussion re Hayden; well he certainly was domineering. In a different sense though. While Hayden was a pretty fast scorer himself when he wanted to be; he does not touch Sehwag. On the other hand, Hayden intimidated bowlers but not really by the speed of scoring.

    He said that Hayden's batting inbetween 2002-04 was as good as anyone that he'd ever seen and compared him to Bradman.

    The difference was that Hayden was a calculating assassin whilst Sehwag was a batsman who went after absolutely everything. Hayden had an aura about him whilst with Sehwag you always thought you had a chance.

    Oh, okay. Thankfully, this thread isn't about who you would pick instead of another for tests.
