one of his better centuries.

He strode to the crease with great intent, even though India had lost the first 2 wickets for less than 10 and the wicket was looking a bit lethal, and he imposed himself on the game to start, with some fine boundaries while other batsmen struggled. Then, weathered a long, lean spell, where he wore plenty of deliveries, but kept his head until things settled and then went on with it.

A memorable century - he will not like it as much, as his team are probably going to lose the test - but it was a true 'captain's knock'

Probably taking the mantle of the best Test bat in Smith's absence.

Hes so far past second place in ODIs, I cant even be bother to work out who that would be.

His T20I record is so good, I cant be bothered to work out second place.

His test record has continued to rise in an era of run averages seemingly dropping off a cliff.

Miles the best player of his generation.

Similar to when my amount of golf world ranking points (zero - funnily enough) was closer to Phil Mickelson's, than Lefty's was to Tiger Woods.
Sports broadcasting media nut miscast as a hard-working family man. Or should that be the other way around?

of course, comparing players from different eras has its issues, but I don't see how a case can be made for anybody to be said to be a better ODI batsman than Kholi, since One Dayers started.
