"Sehwag" enters the Day 7 Chernoff gallery displacing "Dwayne Smith" who got only 1 wicket and couldn't get to bat against Zimbabwe.

Recall that a pure batsman has a round face, wide nose and smiles when he gets good runs, while a pure bowler has a tapered face with a tall nose and big ears when he is among the wickets.

Eyebrows tend to be longer and higher if you have taken more catches ("Tikolo" with 2 catches).



This list and the Chernoff faces have been prepared by my colleagues Debasish Ghosh and K Anil Kumar of Cranes Software International Limited using the SYSTAT software.
