    Man, I am ****ting myself, so nervous for Tendulkar today. Really want him to do well. Despite what haters say, this is the kind of impact he has had on so many Indian cricket fans (and fans in general, for the most part). He truly has been a massive part of many Indian's lives, as silly as that sounds. Particularly I reckon if you are between 20-35 and he's been there for the majority of your time watching cricket.

    Sounds like a line out of an episode of Full House.




    I for one want him to make a hundred. Dunno why anyone would get any pleasure out of seeing a great batsman go out on a failure

    Cannot wait for the game to start. Was just watching the highlights of the first test in the tour of Australia. He was so good for those 73 runs. After that I do not recall him being as fluent again. Just wonder how much better off it would have been if he had gotten the 100th 100 against Pakistan in the WC. Feels like so much good form got wasted on that stupid statistic.

    No kidding I watched that same clip just yesterday, he looked so at home in those conditions, I've said this a few times in the past but I think he always preferred true wickets with bounce rather than the Indian pitches that we had for Aus/Eng, because for all the talk of his failures in the tours of ENG/AUS he still averaged mid 30's compared to the horrible home season he's had since NZ toured us.

    That innings was absolutely glorious. Was really pleased when I recently heard Tendulkar say it's one if his favorite innings simply fir the pleasure he got from some of the shots in that knock

    I raged so hard. He was really sever on some tripe bowling at Sydney too... Bowlers kept feeding his cut shot and he scored a damn good 80. After that, it's been a constant downward spiral

    I nearly got on Sachin to be India's highest scorer in the first innings, $6.50 seemed juicy. It's been quite a while since a Sachin Test ton so yeah it would be tremendous to see really, the crowd would go berserk. It will go berserk when he walks out to bat anyway.

    Siddle runs in all day, Sachin should have been more aware.

    Couldn't agree more. One of my saddest cricket watching memories is that of Inzi getting out for an inglorious 3 runs in his last Test innings.

    Here's hoping Tendulkar goes out with style and scores one last hundred.

    The ideal scenario would be for him to go out making a ton, but Foxtel crashing so Jono can't see it.
