Master Blaster Sachin continues his sublime form
April 18, 2011
We are still basking in the glory of winning the World Cup after 28 years. Success has been incredible, and India began to favorites from the beginning. All eyes were on Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar in what is considered to be his last world championship. Serve the nation (in the form of a cricket game) for over 20 years, the honor of winning the World Cup that was missing in his list of successes. So, the question was on will team India to do it for little master
And the dream became a reality for billions when Dhoni lifted the World Cup for Team India. All players were in tears and as hard as Yuvraj and Bhajji were crying. This shows how much this victory meant to the team. Sachin once again was the top scorer for India in the World Cup and it was not a surprise. Although the main contribution of Sachin was not much in the final, but played a decisive blow in the semifinal against Pakistan. His effort to score 85 runs batting first won him the man of the match award in the semifinals. No one on either side of the team can not exceed 50 runs in this game. It was his day and was lucky in this game 4 times with Pakistan fielders dropping catches in the field.The beauty of this victory was teamwork. We are no longer dependent on one person or two to win games for us. All have played their role and chipped in with useful contributions. So the tournament was played in good spirit team sport.
Now the World Cup is over, we thought that his hunger and drive is over. But only four days, the IPL has started and all the players were seen in various games in the franchise. Tendulkar is leading Mumbai Indians in the last 3 seasons, and this is his fourth season with them as a Captain. Last year, the Mumbai Indians were very close to winning the title and reached the final with ease. They were in their peak form, and had every quality to win the final. But Dhoni’s Chennai Super King spoiled the party last year.
This year, the little master is back with a bang and is now the top scorer in the tournament so far. His total of 201 in just 3 games is unmatched by any other person, however, he is not dismissed in the tournament so far. He got another feather to its cap by scoring a blistering century against Kochi. His hunger for runs seems to increase with age. No one complains when we get to see God playing cricket. A living legend and blessed to see him bat during my lifetime.
