Sachin Tendulkar

Sachin Tendulkar said on Wednesday that he started walking back in the group stage match against the West Indies; because he knew he was out. He also expressed his surprise about people feeling the need to debate on why he walked back without the umpire interested in it. The ball had just brushed through his gloves and it appeared unclear in the replays if it was out. Tendulkar didn’t wait for a decision by umpire Steve Davis who actually turned down the appeal.

Tendulkar also quizzed why he should walk back without the ball hitting the bat and also repeated that it was his decision because he knew it was faint nick. It first kissed his bat and only then his elbow, and then went to the keeper and it was genuinely a wicket he clarified on Wednesday in the Motera.

Meanwhile Ricky Ponting refused to walk after nicking the Mohammad Hafeez in the game against Pakistan in Colombo. there was genuinely given out until the umpire signaled it out. It was just a day before Tendulkar preffered to walk without even seeing what the umpire had signaled. But the world’s leading run-getter was untouched by all the talk about his walk.

He also was aware that the review would have clarified whether it was a wicket or not and so there was no point in standing there when he knew it was a genuine wicket, he said. The early dismissal meant that Tendulkar had to wait another day to get to the milestone of 100 international centuries.

However, the 37-year-old Mumbaikar reached another landmark in his more than 21-year-long career: The match was against the West Indies was his 450th ODI appearance.

He said that he wasn’t aware of that record of his. He however said it felt good to make 450 appearnces in the jersey of his country.
