    "This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers."- Jarrod Kimber

    Sujith Somasundar... GOAT opener, not just for India.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Sadagoppan Ramesh is the best opener for India, if he had played more matches, he definitely broke many of records.

    I can't find any scores for that for obvious reasons, but how much did he end up making there? And why was he never given another chance? At least 2-3 games more?
