Sachin Sachin - II

I am as superstitious as the cricketers I admire. The last time I wrote a post hoping for Sachin's century, he actually hit one and this time I decided to do the same and hence the last post. And he hit a half-century. It worked! :-)

I didn't watch the match but got the score online. 60 off 66 balls and I thought it should silence critics temporarily. But people who watched the game live in the stadium and the ones who watched it on the internet said it was painful to watch Sachin score a 60 with just 2 fours. And ofcourse there would be others who'd continue to say "India loses whenever Sachin scores". I think the reason behind so much criticism is that Sachin is not another cricketer, he is SACHIN.

hmmm, I think thats enough suck-up for the day. Sachin, you'd better score big next time and pray to God that the team wins too. Would I be third time lucky?

Illa, this time, his scoring was actually appreciated. Apparently (according to Cricinfo), he was brilliant between the wickets. The problem with India usually is that, if we get a four-ball in one over, we are sometimes sedate for the other five balls, satisfied with the boundary. Most of the other teams run sharp singles just to keep the scoreboard ticking and the strike rotated.
Dravid and Sachin had a 106 run partnership and though Sachin had 2 fours only, Dravid had 6 during the same time. So it's not that bad, esspecially if you consider that both's strike rates were 85+ with Tendulkar being at 90.
So I wouldn't complain at all.

When he scores sixty runs in sixtyfive balls, it is not very relevant whether he got them through singles or sixes. Apart from his extra-ordinary ability to wield the bat, he is also a great thinker of the game and he knows it well that he needs to spend some time at the crease, to regain his lost touch.

Shortly you will see Sachin's fortyfirst century.

Lo! there I see a bunch of Sachin loyalists. But I guess one should accept that Sachin is not anymore in his fullest forms.

Sachin pipity'ku oru treat kodunga :)

Good to hear that Sachin scored a fifty... Wish he gets back his vintage touch soon... I would love to see him retiring as a master blaster than as some one who struggled to endure his career...
He's being criticised so much because he is the God :D
