Virender Sehwag - Cricketer of the decade

Virender Sehwag is rated as the cricketer of the decade by internationally acclaimed sports writers, such as Peter Roebuck and Derek Pringle. This is quite a remarkable achievement for a person who was dropped from Indian team at one point of time. You will not find any other instance in international cricket where a player becomes number one when he was not even a part of playing eleven.
He is known as an impact player and such is his impact that he is already being compared with Vivian Richards for the sheer audacity he seems to possess. Mind you, here he is not compared to The Don, or to Hutton but to the King for the capability of dominating bowlers. Even in the Indian team, there are more prolific run getters in form of Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar, but even these stalwarts do not possess triple hundreds.
And those who talk of consistency, take this example, all but one of his last 11 century innings, have a score of 150 plus. This statistic is mind boggling for a person attributed of not having good footwork and who relies on hand eye co-ordination.
One last thing, Pringle as indicated that his results are compiled on the basis of statistics only. Howzzzzzzzat???
