April 5, 2010 11 comments

Sachin Tendulkar is in his best form of his carrier whether it is Test cricket, one-day or 20-20.

He is been consistent, aggressive, physically fit and most importantly his feet are down to the earth even though he is on cloud 9.

He has been improving his excellence every day; He is more aggressive, fierce now still playing classy shots.

He is been hitting Centuries, Fifties, Double centuries consistently in all form of games.

If you have observed his game nowadays, you might have noticed, many time he step out of crease, and if bowler try to make him fool by bowling bouncer or out of off stump, in that situation also he place the ball in gaps, that’s really awesome.

He runs in between the wickets like swift-running Cheetah, in his 40’s he is running like 20 year aged runner.

The way he fielding and diving on field like Leopard, If you remember how Sachin Tendulkar dived full-stretch to prevent the boundary in last over of first one day versus South Africa (February 21, 2010), Indian own that match by 1 run. IPL 3 – Kamal Catch award won by Sachin Tendulkar versus Deccan Chargers.

He is not only role model to follow, to get inspiration but he is a Perfect Epitome Role Model. Currently he is the Perfect Role Model for every generation. I am using word “Perfect Role Model” because he is having all the best qualities, abilities together; he is real gem and so epitome. He is passionate about his game, he enjoys every moment of his profession. His dedication, hard work, sincerity towards his game makes him to deliver success consistently and so he is not only successful in his career but he is at top in his profession. Still he is down to earth. He respect his game, country, his fans. He is very much honest, loyal regards to cricket, country, family and his fans. His fame, popularity never allows him to be awkward.

Sachin Tendulkar is great human being to admire.

Virendra Sehwagh blasts like a fully loaded machine gun and most importantly all bullets on perfect target.

Virendra Sehwagh unbeaten 284 off 239 balls ( 40 boundaries and 7 Sixes  ) his sixth double-century as India finished day two of Third Test on 443-1,  a lead of 50 runs.

6 Double Centuries and 2 Triple Centuries in his 72 Tests span like an extra ordinary achievement. He is the first Indian to hit 6 double centuries,  Rahul Dravid having 5.

Second Day of Third Test:

Sehwag reached his century off 101 deliveries, and his second 100 was achieved in just 67 deliveries. He played the innings with Attitude, Veeru said his dismissal on 131 in kanpur’s second test charged him ”  I missed the big knock in the last Test. I didn’t want to miss out this time. I just wanted to hit the bad balls”.

About  Muralitharan, he said ” He  is a big challenge to face; rather than wait for him to dominate I wanted to dominate him.”  Sehwag is happy with the track he said “it is excellent track to play and it would be good to bat on tomorrow, and  we definetly take advantage of it.”

Third Day:

Virendra sehwagh failed to become a first 3 triple centurion. He failed to cross 300 run mark so to make one more record. He got out on 293.

Match and series summery:

India won the match with 1 innings margin and won the series 2-0, so India reached at top position in Test ranking.

Virendra Sehwag  is the Man of the match and Man of the Series.

As he reached the mile-stone he took the helmet off and looked upwards, and prayed..

“When I looked up, I had two thoughts in my mind. First I thanked the almighty for all he has given to me. Then I thanked my father. Today I miss him. Definitely he would have been a proud man today,” Tendulkar said.

Sachin’s comment on his 19 years journey.

“It has been a fantastic journey and I’ve enjoyed it. It’s not only about success, there have been ups and downs, various challenged. Success is a process. During that journey sometimes there are stones thrown at you and you convert them to milestones. It’s a great feeling to overcome the obstacles with great support from my family, well-wishers and everyone around. Everyone wants me to do well,”

Asked by an Australian journalist if he thought Ricky Ponting would better the mark he set, Tendulkar said, “All records are meant to be broken, so we need to see what happens in future. Talk about today and I’m quite pleased it came my way. Don’t know about future. I was 16-year-old and had no target, maybe there is another 16-year-old who won’t be having any target and who knows where he’s going to go?”

And following is the Best shot he played against critics.

“I don’t need to prove anything to anyone. I have been around for 19 years and all those 19 years I did not play to prove anything to anyone, not in my first year not in the 10th, 15th or 19th year,”

Hats Off to Sachin Tendulkar.
