'Bowling attacks lose the plot completely'

It is impossible to contain a batsman like Sehwag. He plays all around the wicket. He's got the mindset to attack. There's a sense of fearlessness about him (08:11)

Modern Masters has one major flaw. One of the greatest Modern Masters is Rahul Dravid, with him hosting the show who get to discuss his legacy?

There are few words that come to mind instantly when I remember Sehwag. The positive of those were: IMPACT and JOY. Happy that Cricinfo put together these two talented batsmen to talk about the modern greats!! :-)

Playing against New Zealand as an opener he hit a century of just 69 balls. It was the third fastest one day century and it was one of the most important one.

Very good effort from ESPNCricinfo. Please keep going and cover the entire list of 14-15 batsmen you were talking about. Delighted to hear from Sanjay and Rahul - two great students of the game. Reasonably good analysis. It is so good to see Rahul take another avatar!
