Nice to the Great One, Virat Kohli, right up there at #7.

Isn't it interesting though that all cricketers named to the list are either Indian or Bangladeshi?

Indeed. And some of the names caught me off guard. Suresh Raina?

The answer is embedded in my question above.

This is probably put together by an Indian team how else would you explain Dahwan and Raina?

duh, bcuz they have the biggest populations in world cricket. same thing when lists say that cricket is the second most popular sport in the world after football. it is not that cricket is well known outside the commonwealth, but it is a religion for close to one quarter of humanity, the vast majority of that number being in the subcontinent.

Remember boys and girls, something in print does not make it a fact.

Bolt was supposed to be interviewed on CNBC today but I fell asleep due to my flu meds.

However China's access to the internet is far more restricted than that of India.

Seems like a fair list nevertheless. Numbers are numbers.

Blame the 1.4 bill on the subcontinent for not liking him enough, the 6 mil in the Caribbean can't do much about it.
