Sachin Tendulkar: The Master Blaster’s Top Ten Blasts (Scores) [Cricket Records]
Sachin Tendulkar on his way to 100 centuries

1. 114 vs Australia, Perth, 1992 Australians batted first and were all out for 346. The curly haired Tendulkar came in at 69 for two and saw his teammates depart, mostly for single digits.  He however stood firm until, joined by Kiran More for the ninth wicket, he launched into a furious counter attack. From 159 for eight, the two took the score to 240 when Tendulkar was out. But in the meantime he had reached a priceless 114. His innings provided the abiding memory of the match even if India lost by 300 runs. 2. 169 vs South Africa, Cape Town, 1996-97 In the second Test at Cape Town, South Africa led off with 529 for seven declared. Tendulkar, who was the captain, had entered at 25 for three and was now joined by his predecessor Md Azharuddin. In a thrilling counter attack, the two added 222 runs for the sixth wicket before Azharuddin fell for 115. With only the tail for company, Tendulkar unleashed a flurry of strokes and was at his dazzling best despite the menace posed by the fearsome attack. He was last out at 359. In a stay of 5-1/2 hours, he faced 254 balls and hit as many as 26 fours. Considering the quality of the bowling and the fast and bouncy track, it has remained one of his best centuries even if India lost by 282 runs. 3. 155 not-out vs Australia, Chennai, 1998 Coming in on the fourth morning with the score 115 for two – India were 71 runs in arrears on the first innings – Tendulkar […]

Sachin’s 100th 100 at Lord’s
Whole world is waiting for this... the 100th century by Sachin Tendulkar

Its strange to know that Sachin Tendulkar has a bad record on a ground where a sport called cricket is played and if that happens to be mecca of cricket i.e. Lord’s,it makes it all the more compelling.Four tests and not even a half century leave alone a ton,that too from someone who has imperious records at almost all the grounds of the world is a disturbing thought for someone of the stature of the great man.He is already 38 and its unlikely that he will be getting another chance to improve his record at Lord’s.He was looking in his elements in the first innings but was done in by Broad.That and the fact that he needs just another century to reach an extraordinary milestone of hundred hundreds in international cricket would be playing in his mind.Add to it that India needs to bat out whole day tommorrow to save this test match and we have a recipe for an intriguing day’s play. Whole of India and most of the world would be watching in anticipation tomorrow is clear from the tweets of some of the past greats.Alec Stewart says “Don’t miss what could be a great day Lord’s tomorrow”.England has been by far a superior bowling side in this test match so far and for India to save this test match our batsmen need to bat long and with courage.We have last innings centurian Rahul Dravid with Very Very Special Laxman to company but what everyone would be hoping […]

Impact of T-20 on the technique of players

“The manner and ability with which an artist, writer, dancer, athlete, or the like employs the technical skills of a particular art or field of endeavor” is called TECHNIQUE.For a very long time in gentleman’s game the right technique for a batsman was to play in a ‘V’ (the area between a mid off and mid on to be precise) and that too along the ground.Any body who was not following the protocol was considered a laapebaaz or a slogger.For bowlers it meant bowling with a straight arm and land the ball on a good length spot consistently.Both these principles however,came with two riders.Almost all the coaches,especially in India,told the batsmen to not go for any airy shots as no bowler in the world can bowl six consecutive delieveries on the goodlength spot.So one can wait for the loose delieveries to score.On the other hand a bowler was told to try and be as close as possible to that same spot i.e a good length as batsman will get out going for runs if he doesn’t get scoring opportunities.Inspite of being a paradox if read in the same breath these two statements held their ground for a long time.They were based on the principal that cricket,be a Test match or a 50 over game is essentially a test of patience and those who are more patient will reap greater laurels.That explains why the training modules written decades ago explaining different shots and how to bowl different delieveries never went under […]

Was Duncan Fletcher, the new Indian Cricket Coach too Optimisitic about India Ruling Cricket for 10 Years?

Duncan fletcher is just a fortnight old into Indian cricket and has already seems to be in awe of abundance of talent. He must be obviously apprehensive while collecting his boarding pass to Carribbean after being given a team bereft of six biggest stars of Indian cricket that too on his maiden assignment. But some shoddy display by the host nation coupled with stupendous showing by Suresh Raina led squad meant that the last two matches of the five match one day series became inconsequential after India won the third rubber and the series. The man who believes in dealing with each player on a one to one basis must have heaved a sigh of relief because even though West Indies never started as favorites it is always good to start with a win under the belt. Expectedly Fletcher was on cloud nine but what came as a bit of a surprise was when he said “Indian team can rule for the next ten years or at least five years.” Pardon my skepticism despite the fact I will be on cloud ninety myself, if what fletcher says comes true. But its a preposterous statement to make more so when the series has just started. Although a second string team India has managed to beat Windies in their own den its a known fact nevertheless that the island nation has been on a downward spiral for some time now. Inspite of having impact players like Chris Gayle,Darren and Dwayne Bravo, Darren […]

Google Translates ‘Suresh Raina is God’ to ‘Sachin Tendulkar is God’ in Serbian

Over the weekend, cyberspace has been buzzing with a technical glitch in Google’s Translation service. Apparently if you tried to translate ‘Suresh Raina is God’ from Serbian to English, the translation would come out as ‘Sachin Tendulkar is God!’ Cool. Now we all love Suresh Raina but he is still not a Sachin Tendulkar. But hey, this seems like a pretty silly error. How can the computer simply change one person’s name to another persons. Errors like this remind us that big machine, run sophisticated computer algorithms on terabytes and terabytes of data still have very little common sense, which typically humans are pretty capable off. Lots of tweets were flying about this technical glitch and Google actually responded by fixing this. Suresh Raina, is not more translated to Sachin Tendulkar !
