Sachin Tendulkar Is Really The “Man Of The Century”




Sachin Tendulkar:The God Of Cricket

Sachin Tendulkar:The God Of Cricket

Sachin’s marvelous double century in the second test match in India Vs Australia series has proved beyond doubt that this man is a rare genius.The batting legend made 214 and 53 in the Bangalore Test Match to help India gain a historic series win against the Australians. A clean sweep that enabled India to attain number one spot in ICC test ranking list with 127 rating points,making Australia attain its lowest test ranking since the introduction of rankings.

 The superb bowling and batting by the spirited Indians made the Australians bite the dust allowing Indians another blissful moment after series of blissful episodes in CWG games.The test series shall be remembered for Tendulkar’s heroic innings but one just cannot ignore the brilliant bowling spell by Harbhajan,Pragyan Ojha ,Sreesanth amd Zaheer which forced Australians to taste three successive Test loss after 22 years.Anyway ,I will restrict myself to Tendulkar awarded man of the match (second test) and man of the series. The Australian press has showered loads of compliments on this evergreen living legend by naming him “man of the century“.

The Sydney Morning Herald states that : “How he haunts the Australians. Last time they were in India, Ricky Ponting’s men watched him score his 13,000th run. In this Test he brought up his 14,000th and at times he seemed to be on his way to 15,000th. God alone knows when he will desist.” It stated further that Tendulkar remains ‘the one constant in an ever-changing cricket universe, ever present, always scoring. He has been at the crease for 21 years.’ The Age newspaper said: “The Little Master serves up a lesson. If October 10, 2010 was to be Sachin Tendulkar’s day, then the 11th was his honorary parade, one which may roll over the top of the hapless Australians in the second Test.” Peter Roebuck didn’t hesitate to call him “exceptional” who never misses to play compelling shots on every ball.The media there compared our little master with a kid “who wished it wouldn’t get dark “.

 At this moment I will like to quote two memorable quotes that appeared in Indian media when he scored a double ton in an one-dayer against South Africa . The Times Of India then said that ” treasure this new, improved Tendulkar.He is, by far, still India’s most valuable player, and will remain so till he decides to call it quits.” The Hindustan Times paying rich tribute stated : ” To Sachin Tendulkar, on whom more words have been written than any other cricketer, including Sir Donald Bradman, two words will suffice: Thank you.” I am amazed at the improvisation level of Tendulkar.Not long back ago when Tendulkar was crippled with injuries like tennis elbow and other such problems there were rumours that his career may give to unfortunate end.Some so-called enthusiastic cricket pundits has already published obituaries speculating about his career in doldrums.However,Tendulkar rising from the ashes like a phoenix,always managed to silence the critics by playing scintillating shots in crucial innings against powerful teams like South Africa and Australia.

I find it remarkable that this guy named Tendulkar has mastered the art to remain cool in crisis.It’s never easy thing for a celebrity to add infamous chapters in one’s stardom via reckless behaviour. No wonder, Sachin in my eyes is owner of flawless popularity called “yash” in Hindi.One may be popular figure but one may not be “Yashashvi” (flawless popularity). At least,this guy has taught all of us that success should not go to your head. Let’s be humble when destiny gives you a reason to smile with episodes mired in success.

I will finish my article with what Anjali ,the wife of Tendulkar,has to say about this recent achievement of Tendulkar.” I am always excited. Whatever Sachin does, I am very excited. If he makes a double century I am all the more excited and if it is against Australia I am very excited. For me whatever he does I am very happy. Today, according to me his 53 was also very important, so I feel equally happy with that as long as we win,” said Anjali.It’s no secret that we Indians are also very excited when the “God of cricket” is in full form on a cricket field.

  1. ’Obviously, the Aussies have taken a bit of a knock; their mindset is always to reassess. The one thing is there’s never an easy Test match against Australia. They don’t give Test matches away. It’s always going to be hard work.’
