Smashing continued!


Sehwag breaks the little master's record. Last year, Tendulkar scored 200 runs. Today, Sehwag scored 219 -- the highest score in the history of ODI cricket. Such a feat tells us two things:

  1. Sehwag is super awesome.
  2. West Indies have had a great fall from their glory days of the 1980s and 90s.

Oh, and Sehwag made it look easy:

Today will be a day for superlatives, and you could be excused for getting carried away and comparing this to Usain Bolt starting to celebrate in the last 10m and still smashing the 100m record at the 2008 Olympics. That Sehwag didn't seem to have to stretch himself might make you think so. Two hundred and nineteen might seem small the day he bats out 50 overs in good batting conditions.

I think that Tendulkar is the greater and more consistent batsman. However, he can't match Sehwag's appetite for epic hundreds.
