The Divine 200
Scaling yet another summit in cricketing excellence, creating History once again!
ET calls him the “Tiger” that is never in the woods, media immortalizes him as the Living Legend.
The words bring goose bumps, even as I key them “Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar, the God of Indian Cricket”
These words echoed Gwalior stadium last evening as the Midas touch was cast on the divine 200!
For reasons unexplainable this achievement reminds me of Sachin’s century post his father’s demise.
Ten days into the World Cup and the first century had been recorded. In the most phenomenal moment back then, the Maestro received 3 standing ovations:
One: when he walked into the crease,
Two: when he reached his Century
Three: when he walked off with fellow-centurion Rahul Dravid
If not 3, this double century surely, brings him one of the highly commendable appreciations. Aptly silencing the critics, who talk of Sachin being on the wrong side of 30’s, the Little Master yet again, treats his fans with an immaculate series.
