Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar - a name to reckon with

Sachin , Sachinnnn , Sachinnnn,Sachinnnn,  wherever the pint sized curly haired gem goes that victory chant will always follow him .

Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar is quite like Amitabh Bachchan ( his favourite actor ) aka Vijay Dinanath Chauhan from Agneepath which is also his favourite movie . Sachin was the angry young man with a cause taking on the opposition by the scruff of the neck inspiring many with his conduct on and off the field . There are many Sachin moments for all of us - the desert storm where The late Tony Greig with his animated and magical voice letting us know Sachin has arrived and how , the World Cup in 2003 where Sachin battled personal issues and set the record straight on the field and that one innings in New Zealand when Sachin came out as an Opening Batsman and hammered the living daylights of the kiwi Bowlers ( quite sure Danny Morrison will agree )  I for one absolutely love his straight drive which ticked  all manners of conventions showing the makers name with pride during the full follow through . The cover drive was copybook material straight out of a owners manual and when the bowler did try his version of a perfume ball .. Sachin responded with a pull or a hook . Sachin makes India tick .. don't believe me ...how many of us have switched on and switched off the idiot box when Sachin is in form or out , there will always be a debate around whether he was the best or not , the bowlers he faced .. every single one of them from the miserly curtly Ambrose to the fast and furious Dale Steyn had just no answer to the great man's pryotechnics .. the answer lies right there . Sachin is arguably known as the god of cricket . I would say his game is meant for the gods and even the gods  would  have been happy to watch him play showcasing his full repertoire of tricks a  la desi version of Troy . Well destiny certainly was his and and he chose a canvas as big as the cricket field to paint it with all the strong colours possible .
Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar - he came , he saw and he conquered and I dare say .. still conquering and while he is at it .. happywala birthday Sachin Tendulkar . Have a good one .

Well narrated. Yes, after Gundappa Viswanath, Kapil Dev and K. Srikkanth, it was Sachin who attracted with his strokes. We used to wait for his entry and then switch off the T.V. once he is out! We wish him good health and a long
life to promote not only Cricket, but other sports too.

Very well written and certainly brought back some good memories. You mentioned about switching off TV when he got out. There are times we would not want to switch on tv, feeling that "Nazar na lag jaye" 😊
Truly, I feel he played in time when gbr best of bowlers bowled at him. Undoubtedly it's hard to replace the god 😊
