    Sehwag greatest ever in sub continent?

    Batting records | Test matches | Cricinfo Statsguru | ESPN Cricinfo

    Average of 60 with a SR of 85, there might be a few who may average a touch higher but as an avg/SR combination don't think there can be many better.

    Further evidence of him being a bludgeoning flat-track bully.

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Yeah, we have had a few openers before like Wasim Jaffer, Akash Chopra and SS Das who were clearly not flat track bullies. It's baffling that India selects Sehwag and leaves them out.

    He is a flat track bully, but he's still an amazing player.

    In fact flat track bully isn't the right description. Flat track serial killer?

    This seems more like a flow chart for Ricky Ponting.

    Tim Bresnan averages 91 in subcontinental conditions and has won every test he's played there.

    The most interesting thing I've noticed from those stats is that Sehwag averages a solid twenty runs more when India lose the toss in the sub-continent as compared to when they win it. This occurred over a rather massive sample size of 60 tests.

    I call black magic.

    I think its interesting if you break it up further.

    Sehwag in the subcontinent batting in the 1st and 2nd innings: Batting records | Test matches | Cricinfo Statsguru | ESPN Cricinfo

    Sehwag in the subcontinent in the 3rd and 4th innings: Batting records | Test matches | Cricinfo Statsguru | ESPN Cricinfo

    I'd only really be afraid of Sehwag when the pitch is hard and true, even in the subcontinent. That being said, he is a monster in those conditions
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!
