Sachin Tendulkar RETIRES – A Farewell To God Of Cricket

Finally! The GOD of CRICKET decides to bid farewell. A couple of years too late if u ask me. It should have during India’s World Cup victory march at the Wankhede. There will arguments as to whether he was the best especially when compared to the technically perfect “RAHUL DRAVID”. But there’s no denying the fact that he was the face of Indian Cricket for a very long time. In his prime he was the lone warrior for India much like BRIAN CHARLES LARA in his heydays.

There was a time when the chat “SACHIN SACHIN” was a mantra for the Indian cricket fat. His was the only wicket that mattered. The critics who voice against SACHIN never knew the master in his prime. It was like seeing an artist at work. Who can ever forget the SACHIN’s twin knocks in SHARJAH or his domination over SHANE WARNE in the BEST BOWLER vs BEST BATSMAN contest.

He made 100 a landmark number, became the first man to reach a double hundred in ODI’s. There’s a saying that statistics don’t matter. But in his case the numbers speak for themselves. To maintain that level of consistency over such a long period of time is no mean feat. And there’s one thing we all tend to conveniently forget. As Indians we always tend to have short term memory loss. The first and foremost reason we all started watching cricket was SACHIN RAMESH TENDULKAR. As a cricket fanatic there’s nothing which has given me more joy than watching SACHIN bat.

Every journey has to come to an end. It’s been a long and colourful journey thus far. A journey filled with wonderful memories. To me SACHIN was never a name; he was a brand, the brand which shaped the dreams of an entire nation. He was the face of INDIA’s global renaissance.

  1. I've seen almost every test match that Sachin Tendulkar has played – whether live in flesh; live on TV; or rebroadcast. And, I have seen many other batsmen of his time play also; and, this is the reason why I am really baffled at the exaggerated hype about him that I see from fans like you! It's so bizarre that right in this article, you are talking about "test cricket" then you qualify your description of his cricket immortality with the only example you all can find: "SACHIN’s twin knocks in SHARJAH or his domination over SHANE WARNE"! You should know also that I am not one who fall for this Shane Warne "best bowler" redherring either – Warne's record is too abysmal against subcontinent batsmen, on the subcontinent! He and Sachin were made the blue eye boys of cricket during their era, but Muttiah Muralitheran and Brian Lara are the real authentic exceptional during that era! I'm not saying that Sachin and Warne were not good, but while Lara had exceptional exploits against all the great bowlers of his time, where ever he played; Tendulkar's only memorable innings were the two you quoted against Warne at Sharjah, where Warne has the poorest record against all subcontinent batsmen! Again I understand how you feel as a loyal nationalist to YOUR COMPATRIOT, Tendulkar but you are going overboard about his exploits. No great batsman would spend nearly four years (April 2004 to Dec. 2007) failing to score a 100 against the best players in the world! Then another three years Jan, 2011 to Nov. 2013 doing even worse! Don't tell me about age – he and Misbah Ul Haq and Chanderpaul are of the same age – but look at their performances to his, since he got to his late 30s. If he were really great, just as how he started, he would have ended, the way Lara did it! Good luck Sir!
