SA Series - AB leads the way with his comments

AB De Villiers is regarded as many to be the danger-man for India to watch out for - not the only man in a team containing many stars. So, it was logical that the man in reckoning started his comments on the visiting Indian team:
There's been this feeling and stats show it, that their batters score bigger and they generally perform better at home -- which is normal. This will be a big test for them. There's always been the label that they struggle in South Africa
He goes all the way to even question the legitimacy of the Indian No.1 status in case they lose the series
If they don't have success here, there'll definitely be a question mark about their No. 1 ranking
 Speaking of the No.1 ranking, ex-captain of the English team, Michael Vaughan, thinks that the current English team can go all the way to the top and dethrone the Indians. Wishful thanking, Mike - the English have beaten the Aussies twice at home - what has happened after? Nothing much to show or tell outside. 

Back to South Africa - the hosts' coach says that they have plans for Sehwag - havent we heard this before? It is time someone told the coach that SA is one of the two countries against whom Viru has scored a triple. After his debut ton, Viru has not been in the greatest nick in South Africa but knowing him, he will be keen to get the record straight.

Sehwag's idol, Sachin Tendulkar, continues to be regarded by ex-cricketers as one of a kind. Viv Richards being the latest addition in the long list of players who rate him to be the best in the world. The TIME magazine has ranked his double hundred in ODI as one of the top 10 sporting moments in the world - the Master Blaster has the USA taking notice now.
