Before the fall comes the pride. And ditto for arrogance.
However, in case of Sehwag, i can't even say that either of his statement were borne out of pride or arrogance or disrespect. He says what he says and what he believes and it takes someone who has followed him and his comments over the years to understand that what he says should not be sliced and diced and applied the logic of interpretation that one would to a fine-tuned media-spokesperson.
Having followed Bangla fans over the years, it is not difficult to understand their hurt either. This whole "ordinary" and "20 wicket" business has started to suck.
