Sachin And His Suicidal Wicket




Sachin Tendulkar

Sachin Tendulkar

When I read articles, posters which said that “Sachin, is the God of cricket”, I went shrugging my shoulders, today I agree to that very fact.

Sachin’ team has never got a World Cup, it was after 1983 Tendulkar footed into the pitches but not yet won. Appallingly this will be the last WC for Sachin, and Indian team should win this for him, it should be a souvenir to him reminding him of his years spent in the game.

The best opener pair – Sachin and Sehwag walked in like the boys of the Wind God, majestically at the grounds of Mirpur. The wave of joy continued for a while, nearly the first twelve overs. Sehwag created an aura for him by hitting several boundaries, hitting fours at the very start of the match is indeed motivating. It was little sad to see Sachin’s wicket going in the overs that followed.

What happened?

The player with maximum responsibility, highest level of pressure (more than the captain) is our Sachin, he clearly found that his system was getting enervated and stumbling to build up the strength. He could also note the fact that Sehwag was doing extraordinarily well with his initial strikes and run-rate of over 6.3.

The first Indian wicket was the most wanted wicket for the Bangladesh Team, the Sachin’s wicket.

Was it really Sachin’s?

No, it was Sehwag’s wicket. Sachin agreed and left the pitch, considering the fact that Sehwag was in higher energy level and in form. His suicidal-wicket was a sacrifice to Sehwag. Viru, lived to his expectations, his sacrifice by making a century, more than a century – 175!

Had Sachin not sacrificed, this 175 would not have been there, the team would have sulked in the misery of losing to Bangladesh as the latter is currently with a run rate of 10.10

Indeed Sachin, you are the real ‘team player’.

Cheers!

Hello folks! I am Bharathi Murali, 20, a Chemical Engineering student who always look at journalists or journalism students with a little jealousy in my eyes. I belong to Coimbatore now put up in Chennai. Besides writing, blogging I like traveling (on my bike), photography and silence. I have strong belief in philosophy. With regard to sports I just love watching them on TV when it comes to playing them I have tried to play most of the Indian sports with shallow knowledge in each. I am also a part of the University Basketball team and guess more than scoring I take care of defence better and well known for the fouls that I generally commit! I blog at www.thebhavachakra.blogspot.com. In one line I have always admired Bhagat Singh more than Gandhi, I support radicalism!
