20 super years of Cricket!

He hasn’t just survived, he’s left his imprint on every situation,” Harsha Bhogle, the doyen of Indian cricket commentators, said. “It is a colossal achievement. On his first tour of England he batted against Eddie Hemmings, who had made his first-class debut seven years before Tendulkar was born. He now shares a dressing room with kids who were having their umbilical cord cut when he was scoring his first century.”

"Commit all your sins when Sachin is batting. They will go unnoticed because even GOD will be watching then!"

The little champion! The master blaster! SACHIN TENDULKAR!

I was a crazy cricket fan during my school days. I watched every match, both ODIs and test matches. Then Sidney Sheldon & Agatha Christie came into my life. Aah the novel days! I still watched every world cup like a faithful Indian. I got to watch the man make his 200* in ODI on my friend's comp yesterday. Goosebumps? Thrill? I didn't know. But when I got back home and watched the highlights - I was overwhelmed. During the presentation Sachin mentioned that the people of India were with him throughout his good times and his bad times. That's the kind of national support one gets for what they are!

There is only one A.R.Rahman, only one Amitabh Bachan, and only one Sachin Tendulkar!
