Hey! I Will not Let That Go By Any Chance..
Well-the last review titled -Sir Sachin? seems to have been read by the man himself.Because hours later the man went on to prove once again by notching up his 39th test ton against the mighty Aussies in Adelaide on day 1.Sachin scored an unbeaten 124 on day 1 to see India pile up a decent 309/5 at stumps.Sachin ended up scoring 153(205b;13X4;3X6) before he was out caught by Hogg off Lee.
The man looks unstoppable looking at his current form and his recent comment about his retirement.Who else can be matched along with Sachin when it comes to batting?Even the batting greats of the likes of Brian Lara,Ricky Ponting,Matthew Hayden,Sanath Jayasuriya,Rahul Dravid Sourav Ganguly,Jacques Kallis,Inzamam Ul Haq so on and so forth,are not even half way through when their statistics are compared with this Mumbai Maestro.
A combination of scoring 100 half centuries and fifty hundreds in both forms of the game would be a correct prediction->as quoted by Harsha Bhogle(unknown).Even the greatest of great bowlers(viz,Shane Warne,Wasim Akram,Waqar Younus etc) of the world stand speechless when it comes about Sachin Tendulkar.The one mare aspect about this gentleman is that most of the have come during thode times when the team needed it(for ex:the 136*against Pakistan in 1999 in Chepauk,241* against Australia in Sydney in 2003-04).Hmm..Brown...there's no excuse other than giving the honour to this little master!
