Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag

At least only one of them's got a bat on this occasion

Comparison’s probably inappropriate, but Virender Sehwag is more eye-catching than Sachin Tendulkar these days and people get infatuated with the way he plays. As we asked this morning: which is more memorable, a Virender Sehwag double hundred or a Virender Sehwag 15? His achievements are high profile.

A couple of jaw-dropping facts though. This was Sehwag’s 19th Test century and his 31st in internationals. Tendulkar’s was his 47th Test century and his 92nd in internationals.

There’s a case for saying that Virender Sehwag became exceptional where Sachin Tendulkar always was exceptional. We’re sure Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel have been pondering that a lot.

Really, who cares? Comparing these two is to totally miss the point.

  1. Judging by the picture, Sachin also does the better Stevie Wonder impersonation.

    Excellent marketing in that picture by Sehwag, he shows the full face of the sponsor’s logo to the camera.

  3. Viru looks almost exactly like that nice Mr Kapoor who runs our local pharmacy.
