Vintage Sachin @ Adelaide

sachin

The backfoot punches, straight drives and the sixes dancing down the track were back as we were treated to a vintage Sachin Tendulkar unbeaten century. This could very possibly be the last trip to Australia by Sachin and the Adelaide crowd realises it. The master was given the ovation that he deserved.

    My thought exactly!

    Damn him! 😉 As an Aussie fan, Tendulkar is phenomenal. One of the best batsmen of his generation, maybe one of the best all time… Big call there tho’.
    Hey… if you’re interested, we’ll be chatting about the 4th test as it happens…

    Sachin should keep playing until he is 40.
    I hope he does.

    Ben,

    Sachin already brings out extreme reactions in India. Indians have such high expectations from him that even a 50 or a 75 from him is frowned upon.

    More than 15 years of carrying the burden of a billion Indians is simply not easy. Hope he persists.

    Yeah! Maybe we Australians can adopt him.
    I’m sure we can find him a nice house by near the beach and a cricket ground. 🙂
