When the Indian Premier League kick-started for 2010, one was accustomed to listen to the same old commentators, the same old people in India who think they know everything about cricket and that they are the final authority on the subject – that IPL is not for the ‘old’ cricketers – or those who are nearing their retirement.
Cometh the hour,
Cometh the man..
Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar
Not just the captain of the Mumbai Indians, which is sitting pretty at the top of the table, but also one of the highest run-grossers of the tournament! Sample this – 303 runs from 6 innings – a staggering average of 60.60 and now his kitty boasts of 7 IPL fifties.. whoa!
If just numbers make up the stuff that pleases the commentators and shuts up the critics, this man has it all! He proves again and yet again, that age is just a number.. a wizard can display his magic anywhere..
And certainly –
Old is gold
That does feel good. Being a staunch Sachin loyalist, just had to get this out of my system. Go Sachin! Rock and roll!
