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.

Stop, stop. Wait a minute.

Why don't you...

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