  1. No One is better than V Sehwag till date...(16-02-2011)...!!

    i am saying this not because:
    i am a Sehwag fan..
    but because:
    i am a cricket fan..!!


  2. Hersheel Gibbs is one of my favorire batsman and i also like his gm bat.

  3. i am a very big fan of Hersheel Hibbs.

  4. Who ever the oponent is nothing stops Viru.

  5. i am big fan of sehwag

  6. sehwag is best

    Girraj Sharma

  7. Viru is history and wont play again ... Shikhar Dharwan playing a blinder and should take second or third on that list

  8. Virender Sehwag is best...he is real Daredevil of Cricket..
    i m biggggggggggg fan of Viru bhai..i confident that only viru bhai will break the 4oo runs test record...luv u viru bhai...You will come Back.All the best for ur next Game
    ..........AJAY UMATE.............

  9. Because compared to the rest of the team Astle played with ,this is the most outstanding innings because India and Sth Africa are far better teams than New Zealand will ever be.To score the fastest double century against a over confident English team who always consider themselves superior to a team from a country with a population of less than 4.5 million is special.
