SACHIN ! SACHIN!…SACHIN! SACHIN!…SACHIN! SACHIN!…..India will be celebrating this living and yet playing at 36 years old Indian cricket legend….SACHIN TENDULKAR !….What a Man !
The First Cricket ODI was played on January 5,1971 at Melbourne,between Australia and England
39 years later,and just seconds ago,at 6.15 pm Indian Standard Time on Wednesday,February 24,2010,Sachin Tendulkar becomes the first man to score a double hundred in ODIs
Today,he opened the Innings at Gwalior,and smashed the South African Bowling for an unbeaten 200 of 147 balls,with Three 6’s and Twenty Five 4’s….A chanceless knock….The Indians have just scored 401 for 3 in their 50 overs with Dhoni smashing an unbeaten 68 in 31 balls….In the batting Powerplay,Pathan and Sachin scored 63 runs…Karthik scored a brilliant 79 coming in one down
Sachin loves batting at Gwalior…today he showed just how much…he’s married Gwalior today !…last time he batted here he missed a century ,scoring 97…today he scored a record double ton…never achieved before!…he was clearly crammed and body aching towards the end!
The highest before this was 194 by Saeed Anwar of Pakistan in 1997 and later Coventry in 2009,who equalled Anwar….Anwar batted most of that Innings with a Runner….but Sachin ran all the singles and two’s in his innings…He was ‘GOD’ today…incredible timing,placement,power,elegance…strokes all round the wicket…a complete batsman….a Phenomenon playing a Phenomenal Innings
I confess,I was glued to this innings from 2.30 pm today and saw each and every ball of the 147 that Sachin played….a privileged break away from work !…simply worth it
PROUD TO BE AN INDIAN IN TENDULKAR’S INDIA !
