Tendulkar is interesting. He has now played in four separate decades - I think he's a little different in terms of memory. I'm 28 now and I was five years old when he debuted - people have literally grown up with him, and people who were adults are now pushing middle age so he's been such a huge overarching figure in so many people's sporting life that I don't think that'll be the case. The kids who only grew up in the past ten years, it's of course a different story.
If you didn't watch cricket in 1998, you don't really appreciate what he meant. The only useful thing in 1990s for Indian cricket - where winning away series in Zimbabwe seemed impossible.
Getting annoyed at Shastri saying 'hundred for two' instead of 'one hundred'

12-1 off the last 11 overs. Have we really bowled that well?
Well, Gambhir and Sachin aren't exactly in great form.
Probably scared of getting out as well, given the media uproar over their failures with the bat recently. Determined to not lose to England it seems.
Tendulkar isn't trying to hit out of form. He very much knows what reactions he'll get if he gets out for a 10 in 50 deliveries or so. Still he has so much confidence in his defense! What a great fighter!
Someone like Pietersen needs to learn this from players like Tendulkar, Dravid, Kallis, Ponting - having confidence in your defense in the worst of times...

"I want to raise my hand and say one thing. Those who complain about my love for the game or commitment to the game are clueless. These are the only 2 areas where I give myself 100 out of 100."

Really poor captaincy there, giving him the easy single like that.

we build our own unfolding.
Tendulkar with his top score of the series then. Pressure off.
Results of Fletcher's 30-minute throwdown to Tendulkar yesterday showing ... Wish he followed the footsteps of Kirsten in this regard from the start...
Needed that, what is it with Ghambir failing to convert?
Gambhir goes ... The prospect of watching a Tendulkar-Kohli partnership in an Eden Gardens winter test match... I miss it
Gambhir getting out trying to cut too close to his body. Can't say I saw that coming..
Would love to know the chat between Swann and Pietersen in the cordon.
