Hayden's S/R is what you'd call good, positive cricket. Sehwag's is bordering on maniacal, yet successful.
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.
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.
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.
Would take the burly over Sehwag in One days and t20s.
But sehwag anyday the better bet for me in tests.
