Easily the most destructive .His average is very good, hardly 6 runs less than the best ever. And his strike rate is 20 more than the next best one. In combination, if we consider average multipled by strike rate per ball, we can assume a cumulative score. Shewag here is at 45. next is a group of 3 batsmen, very close to 30. They are Graham Smith, Matt Hayden and Gautam Gambhir. Jaysurya nad Langer are next .

So it can be seen that Sehwag is not nly them most destructive batsman, but leads the pack by a fair distance. 50% better than the next best !

Yes, I agree. When he is at his best, no bowler can be comfortable against him.
