Today I am going to blog about our cricket legend – Sachin !!
Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar – A world class Indian Cricketer with high attitude, high energy and high passion towards the game of cricket. More than a cricketer he is such a humble human with ‘Down to earth’ approach. A player who helped several younger players in the team to grow up.
Yes bloggers, today I am going to blog about our cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar. A man with huge passion about the game, in the end of eighties Indian cricket badly need a very good batsman where most of the experienced batsman were out of form and aged they need a young blood to take up the responsibility. Sachin’s record breaking partnership with Vinod Kambli in a first class school cricket earned a close look at Sachin’s batting skill.
In 1989, against the world’s best swing bowlers of Pakistan, Sachin got his debut for India. He scored 15 runs and bowled by Waqar Younis in his first innings. Though he showed his class of batting while facing those 24 deliveries against the top swingers. After that he show cased his skill of batting every now and then to be in the permanent member of the Indian squad.
A man with high degree of temperament smashed centuries and fifties against all test playing cricketing nations and minnows. The records that he is having now are more than the no. of records hold by all our Indian cricket players. Tendulkar’s spectacular run over the past twenty years is simply unbelievable. I reckon he himself wants to prove something which is what still driving him comfortably against any opponent in the world.
I am not concerned about who is the best among whom. There are so many discussions going on Don Bradman or Sachin who’s the best in cricket. To be frank according to me both belongs to different era of cricketing world. There is nothing to compare between these two legends. Both are hero’s of their period and Legends of cricketing world. Sachin is the one who restructured Indian batting line up. There was certain period in nineties after his wicket the score rate of India score board drastically got down. And 80 % of Indian cricket fans will switch-off the television after Sachin’s wicket.
Sachin is not merely been a cricketer but a symbol of excellence and symbol of idol for several cricketers and young lads all over the world. I came to know about cricket in my age of 6-7 but before that with out knowing what is cricket? I know some one named Sachin who is a star in our country at that time. I hope so many of them in our country know who is Sachin, with out knowing what is cricket. Even though in remote villages he got a huge amount of fans not only in India all over the world.
Sachin is the only player in cricket got n number of shots for a particular single delivery. Once he is set there in the crease the bowlers of the opposition find it extremely difficult to bowl him. Because he got variety of shots in his dictionary for a single delivery. Though the cover drive with back foot, wristy flick on the onside mid-wicket region and leg glance behind the keeper are the notable gorgeous shots in his batting dictionary.
Several times he single handedly taken the match for India notable innings were Coca-Cola Cup against Australia at Sharjah where Sachin scored a century to won the cup for India. In the world cup 2003 against Pakistan in a group pool match Sachin scored a brilliant 98 against the best pace and swing bowling attack (Wasim, Waqar and Akhtar). Any the only man in the planet and to score a 200* against SA in recent finished India – SA ODI series that too against best quality of attack of SA bowlers including Steyn, Parnell, Kallis and Langeveldt.
The ‘Little Master’ proves himself every now and then that his endgame is nowhere in sight. He is cracking off centuries like he did at the age of 20’s he is in thirst of runs at the age of 36 also. The best thing about the little master which I am most concerned is his mind set all through these 21 years what a man he is. Even after the continuous effort still he said “he is still learning and improving the game”. Such a kind of attitude and passion towards the game ranks him high than any one else in the cricketing world.
As every one knows the world cup victory is still pending in his kitty. I hope the little master with ‘Hamara Captain’ Dhoni will be eyeing to get the WC -2010. My warm wishes to the whole team to get the WC- 2010.
If you say Tennis -> its ‘Federer’ , Golf -> its ‘Tiger Woods’, Basketball -> its ‘Micheal Jordan’, F1 -> its ‘Micheal Schumacher’ and if you say cricket its none other than the Little Mastero – Sachin Tendulkar.
Kudo’s to our Mastero!!!
Some quotes about Sachin:
I’ll be going to bed having nightmares of Sachin just running down the wicket and belting me back over the head for six. He was unstoppable. I don’t think anyone, apart from Don Bradman, is in the same class as Sachin Tendulkar. He is just an amazing player.
– Shane Warne
Sachin is cricket’s God! – Barry Richards
Don’t bowl him bad balls, he hits the good ones for fours.
– Michael Kasprowicz
If I’ve to bowl to Sachin, I’ll bowl with my helmet on. He hits the ball so hard.
– Dennis Lillee
I still think Tendulkar is the best batsmen in the world ahead of Steve Waugh and Lara.
– Glenn McGrath
Still there are so many things I can say and write about Sachin but I don’t find enough time to write all things about Sachin. We can release a 1000 page book about Sachin about his records itself. So let me wind up with these things and bids adieu from this blog now. Will catch all of you in my next blog. Till then …this is Sakthi signing-off from my blog.
