Reminiscence – 1




Sachin Tendulkar

Sachin Tendulkar

Hello Pals! This post is in seven installments of the benchmark achievements (not exactly) or the most memorable innings of Sachin Tendulkar, the one-in-century player!

Don’t ask why seven, it is just a figure, if it has to be numbered; it should be equal to number of fans of Sachin, which is in billions!

Here revs up the installment number – 1!

When it was the time of the Retro-Indian Team, my favorite (though not watched many of the matches) the team of 1994, it was March 1994, precisely, there was a match between India and New Zealand at Auckland.

Why is this remarkable one? Any great hits, any accolades, any turning point in Sachin’s career? May be the last one be right.

What is the biggest waste of a resource? It is sending the best striker in the number 5 or 6. Yes! It was Sachin playing in the order 5 or 6 all through the days until March 1994 at Auckland; this was his first match as the opening striker.

This gets more interesting and thrilling rather.

Sachin felt that his potential will be the best if he is opening the match and he felt that he has been wasted, in all his seventy odd matches in the past.

“Here I come!” went the frustrated Little Master to his Captain and the Coach and made a deal.

“Let me open the match, if I fail, I shall not come to you asking for anything” said Sachin.

Sachin came on the pitch and played violently, the vow was in his mind, the urge to achieve!

A blazing 82 off 49 balls (15 fours and 2 sixes).

Since then the world has been witnessing this legend shoot off the game with his swift movements of the willow.

He made it and the world still sees it.

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!
