    Hopeless list….no list is complete without Sehwag’s triple hundreds vs SA and Pak at more than run a ball…nobody can do that — not even Bradman!!!

    • Devesh Batra

      Sehwag’s innings were on Batsmen’s paradise pitches with nothing to lose. They don’t even rank near the ones shortlisted by Wisden – invention of the Internet and making it affordable to douchebags did mean we would have to deal with kids questioning Wisden – we should have known *sigh*
