Salute to the master

I'm a huge cricket fan. It makes me happy, keeps me going and makes me sad, mad as well.

Yesterday I witnessed an exciting match between the Aussies and the Indians. In that match, Sachin Tendulkar, the best batsman the world has produced, reached another major milestone - 17,000 runs in One Day International.




He carries the load of the expectations of 1 billion people of India and has been a master in every form of the game and in every sense of gamesmanship.

He has played international cricket for 20 years now. I can only wish that we get to watch him play for another 5 years! Here's his one day cricket record against the top international teams so far...

  1. another milestone in sight..that of 30,000 international runs(including ODIs, Test matches and his solitary T20 innings). Sachin is 47 short to achieve that..hopefully he gets there in the next ODI at Guwahati 11/08/09.
