    Default Sachin- The Man The Legend!

    "Beneath the helmet, under that unruly curly hair, inside the cranium, there is something we don't know, something beyond scientific measure. Something that allows him to soar, to roam a territory of sport that, forget us, even those who are gifted enough to play alongside him cannot even fathom. When he goes out to bat, people switch on their TV sets and switch off their lives " BBC on Sachin

    1998, Mumbai, February 23-25:
    Tendulkar, 14 and Kambli, 16, compile a 664-run unbroken partnership for Shardashram Vidyamandir against St Xavier's at Azad Maidan. It remains the highest partnership recorded in any form of cricket. Kambli made 349 not out , Tendulkar made 326 not out.

    "Achrekar sir's assistant ran all around trying to attract our attention so that he could tell us to declare. Sachin kept telling me not to look at him" Vinod Kambli

    First blood 1989, Sialkot, 14 December
    On that last day of the last Test of his first Test series in Pakistan Sachin gets hit on the nose by a Waqar delivery. Sachin falls down, gets up and wipes away the gushing blood. Eventually he scores 57.

    "It didn't feel nice, with blood flowing from my nose, but I couldn't leave. I told myself, I want to thrash this bowler" Tendulkar

    1990, Old Trafford, 14th August
    At 17 yrs and 112 days Sachin becomes the second-youngest centurion in Test history. His 119 not out against England helps India draw the game. It still remains among his most valuable Test innings.

    "How could anyone so young be so good at the highest level"
    David Frith, cricket writer

    Sachin ka favourite...
    1992, Perth, 2-3 February
    India is struggling at 135 for 6 at the WACA, the bounciest cricket pitch in the world. Tendulkar scripts a counter-attacking gem of 114. It is his favourite innings.

    " It's a great pity that an innings which deserved a viewership of a hundred thousand is being watched by such a small crowd "
    Richie Benaud

    The Bowler
    1993, Kolkata, 24 November
    With South Africa needing just six runs to win the last over of their Hero Cup semi-final against India, Tendulkar bowls a sensational last over giving away just 3 runs and fashioning an Indian win.

    " I had on apprehension, that in trying to restrict the batsmen I would end up bowling a wide or a no-ball especially before I come in to bowl the last ball, I was ultra cautious " Sachin Tendulkar

    1995, Mumbai, October
    Signs a 5-year contract worth Rs 31.5 crore with World Tel which makes him the richest cricketer of the world.

    " I'm betting on the power of Sachin and the power of the Indian economy "
    Late Mark Mascrenhas, World Tel Chief

    Named Indian skipper at the age of 23.

    " My gut feeling is that responsibility will see greater consistency from him and less throwing away of the wicket to casual shots "
    Sunil Gavaskar

    The Pink Slip
    Tendulkar is sacked from captaincy after a 15-month tenure during which India won just 3 out of 17 Tests.

    " We removed Sachin because he could not take the pressure of batting and captaincy " Ramakant Desai

    Iski to gayee!
    1998, Sharjah April 22-24
    Scores two back-to-back tons against Australia to help India reach the final and win it.

    "I'll be going to bed having nightmares of Sachin just running down the wicket and belting me back over the head for a six " Shane Warne

    True grit
    1999, 30-31 January
    With an injured back, Tendulkar makes 136 chasing 271 against Pakistan. When Sachin gets out, India need 17 more runs. Eventually, India fall short by 12.

    " It was one of the finest innings played under pressure. He is the best batsman in the world " Wasim Akram

    'Careful with that ball Sachin'
    2001, Port Elizabeth, 19 November

    Tendulkar is cautioned and fined by match referee Mike Denness for ball tampering in the 2nd Test against South Africa. The resulting outcry in India and the impasse between BCCI and ICC forces the latter to review the decision.

    " You have to think five times before you make such a decision" Chetan Chauhan

    Default Tobu .........

    The BCCI should gift the Indian players each a Tobu cycle. That's what they are fit for .........

    Default Class is permanent!

    We have grown up watching this little man's miracles. He has been written off many a times and every time he comes back with a bang. He is unmatched and holds a key role for at least next 2-3 years.

    India lost to WI only due to lack of experience and we will have to learn how to maintain a balance. Regarding Tobu cycles, this is the same team who just created a world record of most number of successful run chases. Class is permanent, form is temporary!

    My best wishes for Indian cricket team for test matches. I hope boys will find some form in other form of cricket and presence of Kumble will be a morale booster. Best wishes for Sachin for a speedy recovery. He still is a pillar for Indian Cricket. Not everybody finds 180 crores endorsements these days.
