In his native India, he is the “master blaster,” the “god of cricket,” a hero to over a billion people desperately lacking in sporting idols.

He's had an incredible career. I saw him hit two centuries at the SCG about ten years apart. One was about 245 from memory.

Arguably the greatest batsmen i've ever seen.
 
glad to see the back of him ;). What a player.
